How many ways are there to make a paper pumpkin for Halloween, Thanksgiving or for Autumn decorations??? A lot!!!! Here are jut a few of my favorites.
All of these (except one) have the directions posted on the website. The one that does not have directions is easy enough for you to figure out. Below I'll show you the one I decided to make.
Brit + Co Website There are a lot of craft ideas for children on this website. For this project, scroll down to # 14 Paper Pumpkins.
Court's Crafts Website There are no directions for making these but I'm sure you can figure these out. Very similar to Brit + Co listed above except they have punched the edge of the paper before folding.
I usually make everything that I post, to be sure all they instructions are correct and easy to follow but in this case I have not made all of these yet. Here is the one that I did create using some of the instructions from the Minted website. I did not use her templates. I cut out 18 - 3" dia. circles on my circuit and folded them in half.
Then I cut the ends off to give it a pumpkin shape.
Then I started glueing the pieces together. If they did not match up perfectly, I just went back later and cut them to match. Beside pumpkins aren't perfect either. I also used distressed ink on each of the edges.
Do not glue closed until you have your stem.
I walked out my back door and cut one off of my orange tree. Then before I glued the two end pieces together I glued ( with hot glue ) the stem to the inside of the pumpkin.
Then glued the two ends together
Again using my Cricut I cut out a couple of leaves and glued them to the pumpkin.
And there you have my paper pumpkin!!
A big Thank You to all the people who have created and/or designed paper pumpkins!! I know there are many more of them and one day I'll find them all.
Thanks for stopping by and Happy Scrapping !!!!
