Paper Pumpkin Craft

Gearing up for Thanksgiving, it’s important to still have a couple fall crafts to decorate your home, especially if you’re hosting this year. It’s far to easy to skip from Halloween straight to Christmas: Thanksgiving is becoming a forgotten holiday! To keep the spirit alive spend a little time preparing with your little ones or loved ones. Here’s a great little 3D paper pumpkins project that works as a mantel decoration or centerpiece element.

You'll need:

  • Book pages
  • Scissors
  • Glue sticks
  • Short sticks for stems

Start by cutting out 16 – 20 circles/ovals that you’ll be using to create your pumpkin. Cut them all the same size (whatever size you’d like your pumpkin to be). Fold your circle/ovals in half with the side you want showing in the center. Glue one folded half to the next folded circle. Do the same for all of your pieces until you glue the last halved circle to the first. Push your stick gently down the middle for a stem.
