What you will need:

  • magazines or other paper from your recycling bin
  • scissors or a paper cutter
  • hole punch
  • glue
  • brads

Step 1: Cut the Pumpkin Strips

Using either scissors or a paper cutter, cut 14 strips of paper that are approximately 1 inch wide by 8 inches long.

Step 2: Get Punching

Using a hole punch, punch a hole on either end of each of the strips of paper.

Step 3: Secure It

Secure one end of all of the paper strips with a brad.

Step 4: Fan It Out

Fan all of the strips out.You can decide to add more pieces of paper at this time.

Step 5: Round It Out

Slowly secure each of the remainder ends with another brad, until you have a ball shape. You can add more pieces of paper if you want the pumpkins to be fuller – we chose to keep ours the way they turned out because they will look great hanging from our chandelier with the light coming through.
