Directions to Make Halloween Egg Carton Crafts

Stacking the Egg Cartons

To stack the egg cartons on top of each other, you’ll need to add spacers in between so that they sit a little higher on top of each other. See the below image. You can create a small square piece and glue it to the top of the bottom piece. Then glue another piece on top.

Add Extra Egg Carton Piece Halloween Egg Cartons

Pumpkin

1. First paint your egg carton orange.

2. Paint half of a popsicle stick brown and cut a 1/3 of it off. Adults may need to do the cutting here since cutting popsicle sticks can be difficult.

3. Make a small slit mark with scissors (adults only) at the top of your egg carton and glue the popsicle stick in. Add a leaf from green cardstock.

Then draw on the face with a black marker or sharpie!

Cut out a small circle. Make a slit mark halfway in the circle. Roll the circle around to form a cone.  You may need to trim off some of the ends. Glue or tape this together to keep the cone shape.

Glue the cone on top of another round piece of black cardstock. Glue some gold glitter paper on to make the brim of the hat.
