With Thanksgiving coming up I wanted to make a decoration for my dollhouse. So I decided on this paper pumpkin decoration.
Scrapbook paper, in Thanksgvingish colors
Glue, preferably glue sticks
Something to trace, or a circle paper punch
Something to mark with (Not shown)
First of all pick out some colors of paper and tear them out of your book, or cut the edging off. Trace a circle onto your paper. I am using a small bowl, about the size of a canning lid, because I could not find my paper punch. Cut your circles out. A good number of circles is anywhere from 5-8. I have eight. Fold each of them in half, making sure that the pattern is on the inside. Arrange them in the order you want them to be on the pumpkin. Start gluing the white sides of the folded circles together. When you have all the circles you want glue the two ends together.
Collapse the pumpkin so you can cut the bottom off. For the stem cut a piece of brown or green paper. Spread glue all over it. Now roll it up. And glue it into the middle of your pumkin. This makes a fun display piece, whether in your house or the dolls.
