Introduction: Popsicle Pumpkin Bowl Stand
This bowl stand is a quick & easy way to add that extra touch to any Halloween party!
- 4 Square pieces of paper
- 32 Orange colored/orange popsicle sticks
- 3-5 green pipe cleaners
- Green and Orange markers
- Hot glue gun
Step 1: Gather Supplies
Make sure you have all of the listed supplies before you start!
Step 2: Color Popsicle Sticks
This isn't necessary if you have colored popsicle sticks, but if you don't you can color them orange with a sharpie. If you want to make your pumpkin more unique, you can make certain sticks more red or yellow.
Step 3: Glue Popsicle Sticks to Pieces of Paper
The next step is to hot glue 7-8 popsicle sticks onto each of the 4 pieces of paper. Make sure you have even coverage!
Step 4: Tape the Squares Together
Now you put the squares together with the backside up, and with all of the popsicle sticks positioned vertically. Using scotch tape, tape the squares together. I recommend one piece of tape on the top and one on the bottom to make sure they don't fall apart.
Step 5: Assemble the Cube
Bring the two opposite ends together to make a cube, and reach your hand inside to tape it together. It should stand up perfectly fine on its own.
Step 6: Add Vines
I recommend pipe cleaners, but you could use paper or anything long and colored green if it works. Tape them to the inside and bend them to hang out so they look like vines coming off of the pumpkin.
Step 7: Finished!
Now, you can set your bowl on the top of the stand, and it will bend into a cylinder, so it's round like an actual pumpkin! Enjoy!
