Paper Pumpkin Craft

We love it when crafts are quick and fun and that’s why this paper pumpkin craft is one of our favorites this season! Simple paper crafts are great for all ages, preschoolers and kids in kindergarten can practice their scissor skills while older kids can just have fun making a whole bunch of fall pumpkin decorations. 

Paper Pumpkin Craft for Kids

Paper Pumpkin Craft

What you need

  • orange paper (regular or construction paper)
  • green paper (same)
  • black construction paper (optional)
  • scissors
  • glue

step1

Cut orange paper into thin strips, you will need  4 per pumpkin (more or less depending on how you want your pumpkin to look and how wide your strips are)

step2

Glue two strips together, adding the glue in the middle, making a cross.

step3

Glue other two strips in the same manner and glue them on top of the first cross at a 45 degree angle – as you can see on the image below.

step4

Now take the bottom strip, join the ends and glue them together, making a circle.

step5

Take the second “bottom” strip, one end only, and glue it to the first circle. Repeat with all other strips until you get a nice orange ball.

step6

Cut the green leaf out of green paper and glue on top. If you want to display your paper pumpkin craft, we suggest you place a small pebble or a coin on the inside (on the bottom) so that it won’t wobble around or get moved around by the wind.
