Hanging Stuffed Jack-O-Lanterns
Decorating outdoors and creating spooky yards and trails is super fun in October. These Hanging Stuffed Jack-O-Lanterns are easy to create and require no sewing! The team from ManCrafts whipped up a batch and hung them on the lake trail where they blow in the wind. This post is sponsored by Fairfield World, the makers of the Oly*Fun used as the main fabric for the project AND the PolyFil used to stuff the jack-o-lanterns too.
- Oly-Fun in Orange and Green
- Black Felt
- Fishing Line
- Beacon Fabri-Tac Glue
Draw the outline shape of the pumpkins on the Oly*Fun with pencil.
Cut two pieces of the same size orange Oly*Fun for each jack-o-lantern. They can be any size but the bigger the better! These are about 18-24 inches each.
Glue the two pieces together around the edge, leaving about 4 inches at the top to stuff later and let glue dry. Cut green leaves and glue them to the tops in the opening. Cut black felt pieces for faces and glue them to the front.
Once the glue is dry, stuff the jack-o-lanterns and glue the opening closed.
ManCrafts Zach decided the best way to hold them closed while drying was with clamps! Feed fishing wire through the top of the jack-o-lanterns using a needle and cut at the length desired for hanging.
Hang them in trees to create a spooky trail.
The more you hang, the better!

Oly*Fun is a GREAT material for projects like this. It won’t last permanently outdoors but it is great for party decorations and holiday fun. Here are two more awesome Halloween decorations using Oly*Fun!
The ghosts are darling and super cute. The details to make the ghosts are in this post.
