I cannot take credit for these cute paper pumpkins. These pumpkins were created and designed by TC Dye. I did my show today on creating these paper pumpkins on www.mycraftchannel.com.
Here are the instructions that TC did for you to recreate your own:
Fall Paper Pumpkins
Fall is my favorite season so the earlier I can pull out the decorations the better. I have had some orange paper just waiting to have some crafting done to it and here are the results- some cute 3-d paper pumpkins.
The solid paper you see is actually a smaller pumpkin nestled inside the larger one . Now I have done both but I really love making just ONE pumpkin with NO Center Pumpkin. I like to use other fall products or creating my large pumpkin I used Teresa Collins BLESSED Bingo Card.
patterned and solid paper- Vintage Finds Teresa Collins
Large pumpkin patterned paper is 8 inches and the inside solid is 7 inches.
Small pumpkin patterned paper is 6 inches and inside solid is 5 1/2 inches (about 14 strips each of patterned paper and solid.)
You can get very creative with ONE Pumpkin no center and change up sizes for all your Pumpkin Décor.
Punch a hole in each side of the strips. Watch the video on My Craft Channel today to watch how this is done.
Put your brad through the hole of one side of your solid and one side of the patterned paper. Then lay the solid on top of the pattern and put one brad hooking them both together. Starting with the solid pumpkin, start spreading the strips out to make (form) a ball. Then spread the pattern paper open around it.
For the stem
take a little scrap of green paper and swirl it up then attach it to the brad
with hot glue.
Decorate with some cute wire or some leaves or a fall saying or the die cut words. These would make great ornaments if you used Christmas Cottage paper or string them up for a little garland. (instructions: TC Dye)
I am home from Arizona and taking the day to re-coup... photos from my trip tomorrow. Have a great Monday!
