Paper Strip Pumpkin

Materials:

  • 3 sheets of 12x12” decorative paper
  • Hole punch
  • Ribbon
  • Paper cutter

Instructions:

1. Cut 24 1” strips of paper from your sheets. You can cut different lengths to make different sizes of pumpkins. (8” long, 10” long and 12” long).

2. Punch a hole on either end of each strip. Smaller hole punches work better if you have one. If you just have a standard size one, use wider ribbon.

3. Tie a knot in one end of your ribbon (cut about 10 - 12”), and string it through all the holes on one end of your strips.

4. If there is a pattern or texture on your paper, make sure it’s facing out.

5. Put the ribbon through the other set of holes.

6. Tie a knot to secure.

7. Fan out the strips until they make a “pumpkin”.

8. Adjust your knot placement if needed and tie on a ribbon bow/stem.
