Using a 12x12 sheet of scrapbook paper, I cut it down to 8 inches on one side and then into 1 inch strips. So you end up with 12 strips of paper.
Punch a small hole in each end of the strips, stack them in one pile and insert a brad on each side like this.
Then you pull apart the paper.
Until it resembles a pumkin like this.
For the stem, I used part of my leftover scrapbook paper (it was brown on the other side)and rolled it up and used a glue dot to hold it together. Use some hot glue to attach it to the top of your pumpkin. (Sorry for the blury picture)
Add a little green ribbon (I just tied a bow and hot glued it to the stem)and some raffia and there you go - instant pumpkin.
Add it to your fall decor for that extra touch. You could do all sorts of fun pumpkin colors.
