Draw the pumpkin features that you want on the black paper. Cut them out and glue in place. TADA! You've now make an adorable origami pumpkin.
That is very adorable! And you can make a bunch with all different faces.
Thanks! :) Yes, it's very easy to make a bunch of these and "carve" different stuff in each. Much cleaner and easier than real pumpkins.
