I made these the other day and thought I would share the project, as it is fast, easy and cheap to do!
If you've got old jars and some tissue paper, you can make these. The only other things you'll need are green paint, a glue stick and some Mod Podge, all found at any craft store.
For the pumpkin, I cut out small strips of the orange tissue paper. Working in small sections, I added Mod Podge to the outside of the jar, then laid down a piece of the tissue paper. Continue mod podging and adding strips until you've gone all the way around the jar (overlap each piece a little too, it gives it a nicer look I think). While that is drying, cut out the pieces for the face ... I actually found these on line and just printed them and cut them out. Once your jar is dry, use your glue stick to add the eyes, nose and mouth. I then painted the rim of the jar with some green paint - I did several layers. After the paint dried, I added a layer or two of Mod Podge and was finished! Add some tealights (or in my case, fake tealights from the dollar store) and you have an easy Halloween decoration that can be used inside or out. Mine are on my dining room table, but I think I will put them outside on Halloween night.
