This is an easy paper pumpkin to make. The three dimensional round pumpkin is made from strips of paper that are fastened together. The strips are formed into a pumpkin shape and it is simple to make the paper pumpkin larger or smaller by adjusting the length and width of the paper strips. Use orange paper to create a pumpkin look or use different colors for an unusual effect. I rubber stamped the paper with a terracotta ink to add extra detail to the finished paper pumpkin.
- Medium or heavyweight paper in orange plus a scrap of green paper (to make the paper pumpkin shown you will need enough paper to cut 6 strips which are 12 inches in length and an inch wide)
- 2 Brads
- Scissors, pencil, ruler and other craft tools
