Step-By-Step Instructions To Make Paper Pumpkin
1. Take orange construction paper, fold it into half vertically to cut it into two equal halves.
2. Take one half of the orange sheet and fold it into half, horizontally. Fold it again to get four creases on the paper. Do the same with the other half.
3. Using scissors, cut along the creases to get eight rectangles from orange paper.
4. Fold the corners of each rectangle as shown.
5. Using glue, paste four rectangles at one end to form a plus sign like shown. Do the same with the remaining 4 rectangles.
6. Place one over the other to glue their parts together making sure the edges do not overlap.
7. Next, bring the free end of each of the five rectangles together and glue them to start shaping your paper pumpkin craft.
8. Use white paper or an old newspaper to make crumpled paper balls to stuff inside the pumpkin. This will help the pumpkin retain its shape and look well rounded much like the real pumpkins.
