Woven pumpkin Halloween craft instructions.

Make something different for Halloween this year. Weave a three-dimensional woven pumpkin from construction paper.

What You'll Need:

Orange and green construction paper

Blunt scissors

Transparent tape


Cut four 1×24-inch strips from orange construction paper. Arrange the strips to create a circle, overlapping them in the center. Secure the strips with tape.

To make a pumpkin sphere, start with the bottom strip and bring the ends together to form a circle. Hold the ends in place with tape.

Repeat with the remaining strips. Work from the bottom strip up and attach the ends together at the top of the sphere.

Draw a pumpkin stem shape on a piece of green construction paper. Cut out the stem, and tape it to the top of the pumpkin.

Next, you're in for a real treat. See how you can create a candy skeleton that tastes as good as it looks.
