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:
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.
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.
Time needed: ~1 hour
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! 🙂 )
Black spanish moss
Card stock paper
Permanent marker (in a color similar to the pumpkin)
My paper gingerbread house tutorial got a really positive response, so I decided to make a Halloween version! This is a really fun project that can be customized with whatever supplies you’d like, and is great for kids, too! It is much easier (and less messy!) to make than a real gingerbread house. It would work great as a cute centerpiece for a table or anywhere else. Put some led tea lights in it and it glows!
Hi, everyone! In this video tutorial, create a pumpkin diorama with a miniature paper haunted house in it!
Pumpkin dioramas are very popular again this year and they are so fun to make! You can really get creative with these. If you don’t want to do any carving (or minimal-carving), this is a great pumpkin decorating idea!
