Step 2.

 

First, you’ll need to fluff up the lunch bag to create a round pumpkin shape. Add candy or other treats inside if you are making a party favor. If you’re making these as pumpkin decorations, crumple up newspaper and stuff it inside.

 

Step 3.

 

When the bag is filled and looks round, close and twist the top of the bag. You should have a few inches of bag left as shown.

Step 7.

 

Use Acrylic Paint to decorate your Paper Bag Pumpkin. Paint the leaves green and the base orange. If you want, use black Acrylic Paint to make a Jack-O-Lantern face.

 

Once dry, give your Paper Bag Pumpkin to a friend or display in your home for the fall season!
