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.
