Circular Jack-o'-Lantern Bookmark

Every time you open that creepy book you're reading, this round jack-o’-lantern bookmark will be grinning up at you making Halloween reading even more fun.

You Will Need:

  • Orange Felt
  • Black Felt
  • Orange Tassel
  • Orange Yarn
  • Hot Glue

Instructions

  1. Cut circles out of black and orange felt. I decided to use a mason jar lid to trace my circle because it was just the right size.
  2. Draw the jack-o’-lantern face on the orange circle and then cut it out. This is where you can get more creative, and kids can design how scary or happy their bookmark will look.
  3. Hot glue the orange jack-o’- lantern face onto the black circle. Be careful to not let the glue show through the cut out eyes, nose, and mouth.
  4. Cut a 4-inch piece of yarn. Glue one end of the piece of yarn to the top corner of the circle.
  5. Slip the tassel onto the yarn, and glue the other end of yarn on to the top front of Jack-o'-Lantern face.

You're finished! This bookmark will add a Halloween chuckle to your collection.
