Paper Strip Pumpkins
All you need are some strips of paper and pipe cleaners to make three-dimensional pumpkins. These pumpkins can be made in all different sizes and are a great way to decorate for fall. Next time you are stuck indoors on a chilly fall day, try making this fun paper craft!
- Orange card stock
- Green card stock
- Hole punch
- Green pipe cleaners
Step One: Cut the orange card stock into strips that are about 1 inch wide and 4 inches long.
Step Two: Punch a hole in each end of the strips.
Step Three: Stack six strips and thread two pipe cleaners through the bottom holes of each strip. Twist the pipe cleaners together to secure.
Step Four: Thread the pipe cleaners through the top holes and bend the paper to create a “C” shape.
Step Five: Twist the pipe cleaners together and thread a green leaf onto the pipe cleaners.
Step Six: Separate the strips apart to create a pumpkin shape. Wrap the pipe cleaner stem around a pen or pencil to create a coil shape.
