I picked out some orange paper and ribbon from my stash and started cutting 1" strips for the pumpkins.
I cut 16 1" X 8" strips out of 2 different orange papers. The instructions for these pumpkins are here. They are super easy and quick (my kind of project!) I also made some out of some scrapbook paper I have that looks like pages from a book. I like the orange better as the paper is thicker and holds it shape better. That's the one tip I would mention: make sure the paper is fairly thick or it will kind of 'slouch' a bit.
I love the way this pumpkin turned out. I used random buttons I had for the stem and used kitchen twine to hold them together, then hot glued it right to the top of the pumpkin. A little ribbon adds a soft touch.
I am sure I'll make more of these before Halloween. I have all kinds of ideas rolling around in my head...
