Supplies for Coffee Filter Jack-O’-Lantern


  1. First, place a coffee filter on a baking sheet or tray. Make sure to flatten the filter so it’s easier to color.
  2. Next, let your child use markers to color the coffee filter. Allow your child to get creative with their designs. The more you color the filter, the brighter the colors will be when you’re done. You can see the difference in the pictures below.
  3. Once you’re finished coloring your filters, use a small spray bottle to spray water onto the coffee filters. You can also use an eye dropper. Make sure the coffee filter is not super wet or it will take forever to dry.
  4. After you are finished spraying the coffee filter, set it aside to dry completely. I was able to place our filters outside since it’s still hot in Florida.
  5. Finally, download, print and cut the jack-o’-lantern faces. Then cut a stem from black cardstock. It can be shaped like a rectangle, or you can cut something fancy. If you have a cutting machine, find your favorite jack-o’-lantern and pumpkin stem images then cut on black cardstock. Attach them to the coffee filters with the glue.
