Project Instructions

  1. Color the paper with crayons, layering different colors over each other for a rich, multi-layered effect. Use several colors per sheet, and color both sides if you like.
  2. Cut orange construction paper into nine 1" strips (vertically).
  3. Cut green construction paper in half.
  4. Roll one section of the green construction paper into a tube to create center core. Glue ends together.
  5. Glue orange strips into one end of the core.
  6. Dry slightly before attaching more strips. Continue this process until the entire top of the core is filled evenly with paper strips.
  7. Gently curl the end of each strip around and down so it can be glued into the bottom of the central core. Each strip bows out, creating a round pumpkin.
  8. Glue the strip in place and dry slightly. Complete this step with all nine of the strips.

  9. Cut leaves and vines from the remaining green construction paper and attach with glue.
