I posted this paper pumpkin picture last week on my first Thankfullness post. However, I have since thought I should post the directions on how to make it just in case someone feels inspired. The one pictured was made by Jennifer McGuire so I am not taking any of the credit but I am taking the liberty to share her talents because, well, she's just so darned talented and these pumpkins are just so stinkin' cute!
Here are the directions:
Cut 16 1" x 6" strips of paper. Then punch a small hole in each end of each of the strips. Next, put a knot in the end of a ribbon and thread it through one end of the paper strips. Push the same ribbon through all the other holes. Finally, push all of the strips down so they bow out, and finish with a knot at the top. Add a bow and twine to finish it off along with a rolled piece of dark brown cardstock for the stem.
