Happy Halloween week everyone! Some life news... I moved to the Bay Area (Redwood City, Ca.) last week so I haven't gotten around to unpacking all my crafting supplies, which is why I love this easy paper pumpkin craft. My "paper box" was the most easily accessible of my supplies :) They were really easy to make, and they look adorable when strung up. Also, if you store them in a place where they can't be crunched you can reuse them again next year! Win, win people...win win!
Supplies: Orange card stock, scissors, twine, brads, green raffa
Start by cutting four 1 inch strips of card stock. Then poke 3 holes into the top, bottom, and center. You can use a brad, a pencil, or a nail to puncture the paper. Whatever works for you!
Next fan out the paper and secure the center holes with a brad
Fold the strips of paper under and secure with a second brad
Use raffa to make a knot around a brad, then make a bow. This is when saving stuff comes in handy. This raffa was part of the gift wrapping for gift I received. Isn't recycling fun?!
You can make a bunch of mini pumpkins and string them with twine for a finished garland.
I hope everyone has a fun Halloween!
