Halloween doesn’t feature too heavily on my radar, but I do like a good party, some silly fun and any excuse for a bit of decoration and something handmade!
If you’ve ever carved out “real life” pumpkins, you’ll be familiar with them rotting away in no time. I know Halloween only lasts for one day, but if I put effort into my decorations, I’d like them to last a little longer than that. So, what would be a better idea than to have pumpkins made from paper?
These are guaranteed to last longer than just a day and look beautiful as table decoration. Maybe you could make even more of them and use them around the bowls full of sweets, frogs eyes and spider legs for a spooktacular party table!
here's what you'll need...
- A4 black and white craft paper, one sheet per pumpkin
- 1/2 cinnamon stick per pumpkin
- Parcel string
- Superglue (there are situations where nothing else will do)
- Craft knife
- Cutting mat
