Start this fun fall project by cutting your orange paper in thin strips. Roll each strip up tightly and secure the end with a little glue from your glue stick.
Repeat that until you have rolled up all of your strips. Trace a pumpkin shape on the lighter orange paper, and set aside. With your scissors, carefully cut several thin strips from the brown and green paper and roll them tightly just as you did for the orange.
Secure those green and brown rolls with a tiny bit of glue from your glue stick.
Now it’s time to assemble your paper pumpkin craft! Glue the stem and leaves on your pumpkin with the help of your glue stick. Then fill in the remainder of the pumpkin with your orange rolls until the paper pumpkin is filled in completely.
That’s it! Your paper pumpkin craft is complete. Make one or several — or incorporate as a fun kids holiday craft to welcome cooler, fall weather!
