Paper Pumpkins

I found some really cute doilies at Dollar tree and immediately knew I could make some fun paper pumpkins out of them. If you have five minutes and a glue stick you can make these! They are so easy and turned out super cute.


Items needed:
  • Paper pumpkin doilies
  • Glue stick
  • Green wire or ribbon


1. Separate the doilies, this can be tricky as they stick together. I never did get 36.
2. Fold the doily in half with the orange inside.
3. Glue two white sides together by putting glue on the parts without holes and carefully lining them up.



4. Continue gluing and stacking. I liked using 12 doilies per pumpkin. It seemed to have just the right amount of fullness. Glue the top doily to the bottom doily to finish it off.

Congrats you just made paper pumpkins! Don't you look fancy!



Put them on the table or hide them from your toddler on a shelf.

These are great! SO doing this for the party. And an inexpensive decoration that won't take up extra room in the storage bin. Thanks!

That is the cutest thing! I haven't seen those at my dollar trees. That is totally something I would have picked up for my scrapbook. Never would have thought of this though, super cute!

These are adorable! I love them!

I hope they have these at my local Dollar Tree--I've never seen them before! I think they look cuter as a pumpkin instead of a doily--and much easier than the paper pumpkins I made this week:)
xo,
Bethany
