Paper Strip Pumpkins {Craft}

These little pumpkins were so super-easy to make and all of our kids wanted to make one, so we had them hanging all over our house for the last few weeks! Here's what you'll need:
  • Orange construction paper cut into 1" strips
  • 1" strip of brown construction paper
  • 2 leaves cut out of green construction paper
  • 2 brads
  • hole punch

1. Stack the orange strips of paper together. Use the hole punch to put holes in the end of the strips. Depending on how many strips you are trying to punch through, you many need to do it a few pieces at a time.

2. Take one brad, poke it through the hole, and fasten the strips together.

3. Fold the brown strip in half {for the stem} and use the hole punch to punch through the stem, leaves, and the strips on the opposite end. Push another brad through and fasten.

4. Spread or 'fluff' out the paper strips until it forms a round pumpkin shape. Hang and enjoy!
