What’s your favorite thing about fall? If you love all things pumpkin, we think you’ll enjoy this DIY project! Since so many of you loved our ombré oak leaf branches last month, we decided to make ombré paper pumpkins.
The great thing about DIY projects is using what you have—or taking something you’ve already made—and transforming it into something new. And that’s exactly what we did for this project. We took the pattern from our little paper pumpkins and used different colors of paper and PanPastels to make our ombré paper pumpkins.
When you’re done crafting your pumpkins, we’d love to see how you decorate your home with them! Make sure to post pictures of your own ombré paper pumpkins on Instagram or Facebook and use the hashtag #MadeWithLia so we can see them.
