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!

Materials Needed:

  • Orange card stock
  • Green card stock
  • Hole punch
  • Green pipe cleaners
  • Scissors

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.
