Really simple 3D paper pumpkin that you can do with children :)
You can see another type of 3D paper pumpkin here:
Step 1: Materials
- paper (white if you want to colour it, orange and green if not)
- glue and/or staples
Step 2: Strips
Fold the sheets to have the creases ad guide lines. You can also do them with ruler and pencil.
Step 3: Circles
Glue the strips to have 8 orange circles. If you want to make a large pumpkin use 2 strips for one circle; a smaller pumpkin can be done with one strip for one circle.
Step 4: 3D
Glue and/or staple 8 circles in "star shape" at the top and the bottom.
Step 5: Green
Curl up some green strips using the back of the scissors or a knife (watch out not to hurt yourself!).
Pull one end of the curl to make it long.
Step 6: Finish :)
Cut a leaf from green sheet, than glue and/or staple it to the top of the pumpkin.
It's done! Enjoy!
By the way, I never had a halloween party when I was a child and for real I didn't miss it. This was not an Italian tradition (we celebrate Carnival, and I don't like it....), but then I became a teacher and during my 2nd year I taught English and that was when Halloween started to "enter in Italy". So I had halloween parties with my students from then. I think it's funny! And it's good to be a black cat for a day ;D
