DIY Paper Pumpkin Tutorial (Easy) + Free SVG File!

Hi everyone! Can you believe Halloween is already less than a month away? In this week’s video tutorial, we’re creating these super simple paper pumpkins. This is a very easy project, great for both Halloween and Thanksgiving, and very kid friendly if don’t use hot glue!

Click the image below to watch the tutorial:

Materials:

  • Paper – card stock works well, but thinner paper should also work. You’ll need 3 colors – one for the pumpkin, the stem, and the leaf.
  • Glue – I used hot glue, but other types of glue will likely work just fine.
  • Scissors
  • Pencil
  • Ruler
  • Score tool (this is optional, but helpful – you can also use a pen that doesn’t write)

This project is perfect for those who prefer Halloween decorations that are cute, rather than spooky or scary. It only requires minimal carving, and you could even personalize it to look like your own home! Because it isn’t spooky, you can also leave it up all through Fall to Thanksgiving.

 

Difficulty: Easy

Time needed: ~1 hour

Materials:

  • A Pumpkin (I used a fake one, but you could adapt it to use a real one)
  • Cutting tool (I used an X-acto knife – be SUPER careful! 🙂 )
  • Pinecones
  • Toothpicks
  • Black spanish moss
  • Card stock paper
  • Acrylic paint
  • Wire
  • Hot glue
  • Permanent marker (in a color similar to the pumpkin)

 

Happy Halloween!
