How To Make A Paper Pumpkin Decoration

With Thanksgiving coming up I wanted to make a decoration for my dollhouse. So I decided on this paper pumpkin decoration.

dscn44631                          You will need:

Scrapbook paper, in Thanksgvingish colors

Glue, preferably glue sticks

Scissors

Something to trace, or a circle paper punch

Something to mark with (Not shown)

dscn44641                       First of all pick out some colors of paper and tear them out of your book, or cut the edging off.dscn44651                         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. dscn44661                         Cut your circles out. A good number of circles is anywhere from 5-8. I have eight. dscn44671                        Fold each of them in half, making sure that the pattern is on the inside. dscn44681                          Arrange them in the order you want them to be on the pumpkin. dscn44691                          Start gluing the white sides of the folded circles together. dscn44711                        When you have all the circles you want glue the two ends together.

dscn44731                        Collapse the pumpkin so you can cut the bottom off. dscn44751                         For the stem cut a piece of brown or green paper.dscn44761                     Spread glue all over it. dscn44771                             Now roll it up.dscn44781                        And glue it into the middle of your pumkin. dscn44811                            This makes a fun display piece, whether in your house or the dolls.

Pumpkin Hunt-Halloween Party Part 2

At my church’s Halloween party we went outside and looked for pumpkins. I didn’t find any, but it was fun, so my dolls did it too. I went outside after dark, hid the pumpkins, and took the dolls out in groups and took pictures of them.

DSCN6251[1]

I started out by looking in a tree.

DSCN6252[1]

And some bushes.

DSCN6253[1]

More bushes, but no pumpkin.

DSCN6256[1]

I looked up high.

DSCN6255[1]

And in a mail box.

DSCN6254[1]

And down low in a pot. But of course NO PUMPKIN

DSCN6257[1]

I started by flying into a tree and looking around. I saw something orange.

DSCN6258[1]

So I went to the bushes. I found the pumpkin!

DSCN6260[1]

I leaned in to grab it.DSCN6261[1]

I looked under the table.

DSCN6262[1]

And in the stream.

DSCN6263[1]

And in a bush.

DSCN6265[1]

I looked, but didn’t find. (The pumpkin is in the background but she didn’t find it.)

DSCN6266[1]

Another bush.

DSCN6267[1]

Maybe if I lay here I’ll find it.

DSCN6268[1]

I danced outside. I wanted to find that pumpkin.

DSCN6269[1]

I sat and looked around. But I got cold.

DSCN6272[1]

I flew around. My sisters are all so talented, even though I am too, sometimes it feels like they are all amazing and I’m just a sister. I was going to find that pumpkin, no matter what it takes.

DSCN6273[1]

It didn’t take much. It was on top of a HUGE log.

DSCN6274[1]

I grabbed it. Lets go in.

DSCN6275[1]

Grace and I went out together. I was scared, but I wasn’t about to let that show.

DSCN6276[1]

We sat against a log, enjoying the scenery. Even if we didn’t find a pumpkin, this is fun (Pumpkin in the background again.)

DSCN6278[1]

I’m a hula dancer! But hula dancers sleep. I wonder if I go in there will be time to sleep?

DSCN6282[1]

I flounced outside like a princess. SELFIE!

DSCN6283[1]

Stargazing.

DSCN6284[1]

Being a princess I can go in if I want. And I can run too. And I can be scared.

DSCN6281[1]

I walked outside. I don’t care about a silly pumpkin, I want to play in the dark!

DSCN6280[1]

I swung on a swing.

DSCN6279[1]

And sat on a log.

Then I went in, because all the pumpkins had been found.

DSCN6285[1]

I was outside, but I wanted to go in. I was tiered, (Even though it was only five) I was cold, and I didn’t want to be out here.

DSCN6287[1]

I was about to go in when something caught my eye.

DSCN6286[1]

The last pumpkin!

DSCN6288[1]

I seized it. NOW we can go in.

DSCN6289[1]

The winners with the pumpkins. They each got to keep the pumpkins, and a bowl of candy.

So what did you think of the pumpkin hunt? It was really fun to do. Part three coming soon.
