Easy Rolled Paper Pumpkin Craft

Today I pulled out my Fall decorations, and I found the cutest project created by Lu and Boo.  They made this adorable rolled paper pumpkin craft at a friend’s house last year.  It’s so easy that I knew I had to share it with all of you.  (And look how well this project survived storage!  I love projects that last from year to year.)

Rolled Paper Pumpkin Craft Tutorial

Materials: All you need for this project is paper (orange, green and brown), scissors and glue.  Yep.  That’s it.  You don’t have to buy anything fancy, and it can be done by little ones (with a little help).

  1. Cut paper (construction paper, card stock or copy paper) into 1/2 ” strips.  (You’ll need plenty of orange, a few green, and one brown strip for each pumpkin.)
  2. Cut one brown and a few green strips for each pumpkin that you plan to make.

  1. Begin with the orange strips.  Roll each strip and secure the end with a bead of glue.  Pinch the glued spot between your figures for 30 seconds or so.  Don’t try to make the curls all the same size.  The pumpkins have a lot more character when the sizes are different.
  2. (If you have time and patient kiddos, you can glue the beginning of the paper curl and the end.  It makes the curls look cuter, but is more difficult.)
  3. Once you have made about thirty orange curls, lay them out to form a round-ish shape.

  1. Glue the curls together, taking time again to pinch the pieces together for a few seconds to help the glue set.
  2. Add a stem and a few green paper curls.

All done!  Easy peasy!
