Hello Pebbles fans! Amanda here today sharing just a little bit of my love for pumpkin decor. There are so many reasons I love to decorate my home with pumpkins in the fall. Not only are they widely available and inexpensive, but they are suitable for all of the Fall holidays. Pumpkins left over from Halloween can easily make their way through Thanksgiving.
Paper pumpkin home decor is no different from the fresh gourds you find at your local market. Pumpkin crafts done right can stick around all fall. These pumpkins are currently looking pretty on my side table, but will make a nice Thanksgiving centerpiece next month. BONUS: 3D paper pumpkins easily pack flat and can be used in the years to come. Just fluff them up and they’re ready to go.
A rustic just twine bow on the top of each pumpkin adds a bit of pretty contrast to the modern colors and prints in the DIY Home collection.
And how ’bout those paper straw stems? It doesn’t get any easier than that. Simply cut the straw and place it in the center of the pumpkin. So easy.
Each 3D pumpkin is made with several die cuts. If you are using digital die cuts, choose pumpkin shapes that are perfectly symmetrical otherwise the folded pieces won’t line up. I usually use about 12 die cuts per pumpkin as this makes them look full. TECH TIP: You can create symmetrical die cut by digitally cutting an asymmetrical pumpkin in half using die cutting software. Copy one half, flip the image and weld the two sides together.
After you have folded all of the pumpkin pieces, adhere the halves together creating a small stack. Apply adhesive to one side of the stack and adhere it to the other side to create the 3D pumpkin.
