Paper Pumpkin Table Decor

Hi I have a fun and super quick project to share with you today. The holidays are sneaking up on us quickly and these adorable little pumpkins are the perfect center piece for you Thanksgiving spread.

I've seen a few different ideas for these around the internet, but they are super easy to make and change to suit your purpose.
For the larger pumpkin I cut 2 12x12 papers into strips about 9x7/8 inch, inked them and then, with the papers stacked, put a brad through each end (I used a whole punch to make it easier), fan them around until you have your pumpkin. Then cut some scraps into super thin pieces, curl them up and add them for "vines" and a wider scrap rolled for the "stem". You could also add leaves and/or tags or whatever makes you smile. The bigger your pumpkin the more strips needed to make it full, I probably used around 20 strips for the larger pumpkin. 

For the smaller pumpkins; I used 14 strips 6.5x7/8 for the medium one and around 12 strips 5.5x7/8 for the smallest one. Here's a closeup for you:

  My 4yr old son kept asking me if there was candy inside. Not a bad idea! 
I plan to let these decorate my table all month, so maybe I will hide a little treat in there at some point.

Happy Fall Y'all! :)Ange
