- Brown paper bags
- Orange paint
- Green marker/paint
- Pipe cleaners(any color)
- Green & Brown Construction paper
- newspaper/magazine/paper towels(stuffing)...
- Glue or tape
Paint the brown paper bag with the orange paint(don't forget to paint the sides). Color or paint the inside of the bag with your green marker/paint about 2" into the bag on all four sides(shown in the third photo below).
While your paint dries, cut long skinny strips of green construction paper, and smaller thicker strips of brown construction paper as shown below.
Fold your small brown pieces into a small tube and glue or tape together(this will be your pumpkin's stem!).
Once your paper bag has dried, put your stuffing(newspaper, paper towels, magazine pages...) in your bag(about half way full) to make a sturdy pumpkin.
Next take your pipe cleaner and tie it around the top of the pumpkin leaving about 3-4" of the bag on top.
Now tie your strips of green construction paper around your pipe cleaner being extra careful not to pull too hard or you might rip the paper. You can curl the green pieces with a scissor or twist then with your fingers.
Now cut the top of your bag into strips, and fold them down like shown in the photo below. The green you colored/painted from earlier will now be your pumpkin's tendril!
Take your little brown stem and glue/tape it to the very top of your pumpkin. Now your pumpkin is complete! You can add a face and make him a Jack-O-Lantern or keep him a cute little pumpkin! These can be kept as decorations for many Halloweens to come!
