Years ago, I made a wooden pumpkin craft at a church event. I have kept that pumpkin and displayed it every October-November since then.
Last night, as I lay un-sleeping in my bed, I realized that I could re-create that craft for my kids with hardly any cost. I couldn’t wait to try it out today!
Halloween/Fall Standing Paper Pumpkin Craft
- Paper (card stock or decorated seasonal paper from a craft store…..if you don’t have fancy Halloween paper, you can decorate plain paper with crayons, markers, or stickers)
- Pencil for tracing
- Pumpkin template (upload it below)
Pumpkin templates to print at home
Download the pumpkin outline (one large pair and one small pair), print at home, and use as a template for making your pumpkins.
6 Easy Steps:
- Trace your pumpkin on a piece of paper (if you are using patterned paper, trace the pumpkin on the back side) – trace on with a stem and one without.
- Cut out your two pumpkins.
- Glue your cut pumpkins on the BACK side of another sheet of paper (blank side facing blank side).
- Cut out your pumpkins (they will now be two-sided).
- Place your two pumpkins together with the stem UP and the non-stem facing down. Cut a straight line in the middle of the pumpkins about half way up.
- Slide the pieces together so that your paper pumpkin can stand up.
