DIY Book Page Pumpkin Craft

3:00 PM

So, not too long ago I created a Magnolia wreath out of book pages. I then thought that it would be a good idea to make something that would compliment the wreath well and since it's almost Fall, why not tackle a pumpkin out of book pages, too?



I know, you've probably seen these before. I definitely have, but I thought that this was going to be one of those crafts I try from Pinterest and get frustrated half way though, throw it in the trash and curse myself for wasting my time so I never made one...well, it was easier than I thought! Anyway, I just wanted to show you how mine came out.


I hoped on over to Celebrate-Creativity.com where Lisa had super simple steps to follow. I suggest using her tutorial because, out of the few I checked out, her's was the best.






She opted to use a real pumpkin stem. Others used sticks or wire. I chose to make the whole dang thing out of paper because it was what I had on hand at the time. It took a little finesse to get the paper to form the right angles for the stem and the little curly que, but the leaf was easy.




There are a lot of great ideas to color them as well. Before you fan out the paper, you can gather all of them together and use a marker to color the edges. You can use spray paint also, but to keep with the same kind of look as my wreath, I just left them plain.





I loved making this craft and if you decide to tackle it, too, I hope you have as much fun as I did! :)
