I love designing paper into mini 3D pieces of art so I had a lot of fun designing these little paper pumpkins. This is a simple DIY project to decorate for Halloween, Fall or Thanksgiving. It’s also a versatile design – string them together to make a 3D garland, make a whole bunch in varying sizes for the center of your table or make just one or two for the windowsill. Make them in a mix of orange, cream and white papers, or you can even go glam and make them in shimmering glitter papers if that takes your fancy!
I have the pattern ready for you in a PDF printable (three sizes) or an SVG cut file for those of you with personal cutting machines. Once the pattern is downloaded and the card stock is cut, my paper pumpkin is so simple to put together that even the little ones can have a go. I used a low temperature glue gun to assemble my paper pumpkin but if the kiddos are getting involved, you might want to use glue dots instead. For the pumpkin stems I used a square of kraft paper. You can even recycle paper bags for the little stems. See the steps below for all of the details. Enjoy! ~ Lia
