Halloween Trick or Treat Blog Hop Day 2

Welcome to Day 2 of the Halloween Trick or Treat Blog Hop. If you just came from Janice's Blog: then you are on the right track. If you get lost along the way, please visit our fabulous host Kathryn at for the complete lineup.

My project for today is a super easy paper strip pumpkin. These pumpkins would be a fabulous craft to do with your little ones as well. For this pumpkin I used 12 paper strips (2"x12"). You can get 6 strips from 1 piece of 12x12 cardstock.

I created an svg file of some leaves and vines. I then cut them with my beast...the Lynx. I attached them to the top of the pumpkin along with a ribbon and raffia bow. To download the free leaves/vines for this pumpkin click the following link: PUMPKIN LEAVES
For a great tutorial on making these cute punkin's, visit All Free Holiday Crafts.

Like I said, these are so super easy to make and look great as home decor. 

Now, onto some blog candy....

I love this pumpkin! I have seen these all over the blog world, but I really love the papers you have used! And your vines and leaves are cute. I wish I could use SVG files. That was sweet of you to give us the files. And thanks for the link to the tutorial for the pumpkins - I may get around to making them before Thanksgiving is over ;) I am a follower already of your lovely blog. Thanks for 2 days of fun projects!

I love the paper you choose for your pumpkin! Cute cute. I made one these earlier as an apple and it makes a cute apple for back-to-school also! I snagged your leaves! Thanks for sharing. I'm already a follower.

How funny! It looks like if I had been able to put up a day 2 project we would have both done these pumpkins. Mine was being made into a jack-o-lantern!
