Paper Pumpkins - Part 2

Well I did a post already on some paper pumpkins I made here.

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.



HAPPY FALL!

  3. Thank you so much for the tutorial! I was at a store recently that sold kits to make these for Thanksgiving placecards. The kit was too pricey for me, so I really appreciate your instructions!
