3D Paper Pumpink - 2nd Type

Introduction: 3D Paper Pumpink - 2nd Type

About: Being featured means we think you are awesome.

Another simple way to do 3D paper pumpkin that you can do with children.

You can find the 1st one here:


Step 1: Materials

You need:

  • paper (orange and green, or colour it)
  • scissors
  • glue (optional)
  • staple
  • pencil (optional)
  • adesive tape (optional)

Step 2: Fold

Fold a strip of orange paper in 8 layers.

(Optional) Draw the shape of an half pumpkin. The centre of the pumpkin has to be on one crease. You can do the next step without drawing.

Step 3: Cut

Cut the half pumpkins.

Step 4: Open

Open the 4 halves: cutting a half pumpkin makes them symmetrical.

Step 5: Staple

Put a staple in the middle of the pumpkin: use the crease to help.

Step 6: Glue (optional)

Glue the two centre half pumpkins. This is optional, but I prefer to do it because glued halves will hide the staple.

Step 7: Open Up

Open the "leaves" at 180°. Add tendrils (see https://www.instructables.com/id/3D-Paper-Pumpkin/ about how to curl them) and leaves.

Step 8: Decore

You can tape them to a wall or where you want, or glue two ofthem together and do a 360° pumpkin! >^.^<

    Thank to you. Given that I, in fact, do not celebrate Halloween, I think I'll do them at school with my pupils.
