Celebrate the season of mists and mellow fruitfulness with our Papercraft pumpkins. They are perfect for adding a fun touch for your home. They are also great if you want to decorate for Hallowe’en.

They are simple to make, using card in orange and two shades of green, double-sided tape and PVA glue.

You will also need a scoreboard with 5 mm increments and a scoring tool. If you do not have these, you can improvise with a ruler.

It is easy to vary the size, too, by adding more strips or cutting wider strips.

These pumpkins are also a good idea to make with children, just supervise them when they are cutting and using the glue.

We hope you have fun with our autumn fruits.
