3D Paper Pumpkins

paperpumpkins

I thought these turned out super cute.  I should have made some that would have been good for the whole Fall season, but I only had Halloween paper on hand, and didn’t feel the need to run out and buy something else.  I have yet to make the other 2 that I have almost ready, but this one turned out cute, and goes great with the other Halloween decor we have put out this week.  I also changed up how I did them a bit, but you can do it however works for you.

MATERIALS NEEDED:

DIRECTIONS:

Cut your paper into 6″ squares.  I ended up using 8 squares per pumpkin.  Cut your scrap paper into a 6″ square as well.

Draw on your pumpkin pattern, being sure to give it a stem.  This will be your template for all the others.

Cut out your pumpkins and fold each in half, creasing it down the middle.

Using your glue stick, glue wrong sides together.  Continue staking and gluing.

Glue the last two wrong sides together, making your 3-D pumpkin.  Tie a piece of twine to the stem.  Easy and cheap!!
