Witch Pumpkin Lamp - vertical and horizontal alignmentsI'm not done yet with this Halloween thing. After weeks of preparation I'm still trying to add up some more around the house decorations for this coming Halloween.



  • crepe paper (yellow and red)
  • black card stock
  • scissors
  • school glue
  • black marker
  • LED lights
  • plastic or glass jar
Witch Pumpkin Lamp - supplies


  1. Cut a small piece from yellow crepe paper and wrap it around the plastic jar.
  2. Witch Pumpkin Lamp - wrap jar with yellow crepe paper
  3. Take the red one and do the same. Secure this with glue. This will make an orange effect when lights are on. You can fill the whole body of the jar with a mixture of glue and a little amount of water. But you have to wait for it to dry.
  4. Witch Pumpkin Lamp - wrap with red paper
  5. Draw a face of a pumpkin. On the other side I have also drawn another face in a horizontal position. This will only apply if there are horizontal wall lamps.
  6. Witch Pumpkin Lamp - draw a face
    Witch Pumpkin Lamp - face on the opposite side oriented horizontally

  7. Take the black cardstock and trace the jar lid.
  8. Witch Pumpkin Lamp - trace around the lid on black paper
  9. Make another circle outside the first one which is a bit bigger. It doesn't have to be a perfect circle, though.
  10. Witch Pumpkin Lamp - draw a smaller circle inside
  11. Cut out the big circle.
  12. Witch Pumpkin Lamp - cut out around the outside of the larger circle
  13. Fold this in half and cut the center like a pie.
  14. Witch Pumpkin Lamp - make slits from the center of the smaller circle towards the line
    Witch Pumpkin Lamp - open up the resulting triangles, hat brim made

  15. Insert this on the lid temporarily.
  16. Witch Pumpkin Lamp - fit the witch hat brim around the lid temporarily
  17. Roll another piece of black cardstock like a cone. Just trim off the excess.
  18. Witch Pumpkin Lamp - make a black cone and trim off excess
  19. Apply glue on the inside. Insert this on the circle so it forms a witch's hat. See photo. Set aside to dry.
  20. Witch Pumpkin Lamp - glue to the brim
  21. Place the light inside the jar. Light it up.
  22. Witch Pumpkin Lamp - place your LED light inside and turn it on
    Witch Pumpkin Lamp - orange colored pumpkin

  23. Put the hat on top.
  24. Witch Pumpkin Lamp - hat on the pumpkin light
    Witch Pumpkin Lamp - lit up witch pumpkin
  25. Or cover wall bulbs with it.
