Directions

Start by cutting a pumpkin shape out of the center of one of your white pieces of paper.

Next, cut several strips of colored paper.  We used some paper with patterns on it, which gave our pumpkin some added texture.  But if all you have is solid color paper, that works too!

Once you have all your strips of paper cut, use a glue stick to paste them onto the second sheet of white paper.

To make the stem, start by hot gluing one end of a piece of twine to the back side of the knot in the center of the tulle.  Loop the twine around the knot, leaving about two inches of slack.

Make four loops with the twine and hot glue the end to the back side of the tulle.
