A simple paper plate is ideal for painting as a pumpkin and you can go one step further and make it into a treat bag for Halloween.

Separate the paper plates, turn them over and paint the backs orange.

Once they're dry, join them together with glue around the edges or staple them together. Don't glue the top curve as this will be the opening for the bag.
Cut out eyes, a nose and a mouth from black paper and stick on the pumpkin.

Punch holes in the top corners, thread through string at each end and tie to make a handle.

The pocket formed between the two paper plates makes a great little bag for collecting Halloween goodies.
