3D paper pumpkins

Just wanted to share a few of my November DT projects for Jillibean Soup.  They’re up on the blog today along with a lovely tag by DT member Ingrid Danvers. 

My girls and I made these 3D paper pumpkins as a fall table centerpiece.  We cut 12 circles each: 4 inches, 5 inches, and 6 inches.  We folded them, orange sides together, and then adhered the opposite sides together until we had a 3D sphere.  We cut a bit off the bottom, so they’d stand straight. We added a green canvas flower, some rolled strips of green paper, and we made the stems by spraying a 2 inch strip of kraft soup staples with water, and then scrunching and twisting into a stem shape.  Fun to make!  They’re great for Halloween, but we’ll be keeping them up until Thanksgiving.  Generic pumpkins always work through November. =)  Click here for full credits.

I made this set of thank you cards for some very thoughtful neighbors who brought us some goodies when we moved in.  I threw in some SRM stickers for the sentiments.  Click here for full credits.
