Easy paper plate pumpkin pouch craftJack-O'-Lantern Pouch Craft

Contributed by Leanne Guenther

I've had a lot of requests for more paper plate crafts.  This Pumpkin is made with a paper plate and a half.  I've provided templates for dinner sized and snack sized plates.

Hang on your wall and use it to hold candy, hair elastics, notes or any small items.  It's great fun to make a different one for each season and hang them in a special place (changing them as the seasons change).
