Magazine collages are a fun way to repurpose your old magazines.
Magazine collages were a favorite activity of mine when I was a young girl. They are easy and fun to make and the end results are just so cool. If you have a bunch of old magazines sitting around, these jack-o-lantern magazine collages are a creative way to make use of them before tossing them into the recycling bin.

Draw out a pumpkin shape or use our one of our printable templates. We have included a tall and a short pumpkin template for your convenience.
Flip through old magazines and find pages with orange on them. Cut the pages in thin strips and set them aside.
Choose several different pages with different designs and shades of orange.
Flip your drawing or template over so that the blank side is facing up. Glue the strips side by side across the paper using a glue stick.
When the page is filled, flip the paper back over and cut out your pumpkin shape. Cut off the stem and set it aside.
Find and cut small green strips out of the magazines. Glue them onto the stem and trim off any excess.
Cut a jack-o-lantern face out of black magazine pages and then glue all the parts together and then mount to a contrasting piece of paper.
My five year old chose to make a small pumpkin because “everything is cuter when it’s small”. She was right! She made an adorable collage and drawing. How sweet is this little pumpkin patch?
This is a fun process that you can used for a wide variety of subjects and occasions.
