Simple Paperback Pumpkin DIY
My Thrifty Sister is sharing a fabulous, simple paperback pumpkin DIY. These are such a great and fun addition to your fall decor!
Paperback Pumpkins Supplies:
I—2” piece of 1” dowel :: 1– 3” 1/4” dowel
6” piece of burlap ribbon :: 12” piece of jute
Hot glue Gun
I paperback book (minimum 400+ pages)
Spray Paint for dowel stem and pumpkin color.
One paperback book ( the more pages the fuller the pumpkin)
1. Tear off the cover and cut a pattern for your pumpkin, curves and dips make your pumpkin creative.
2. Lay the pattern on the book and cut a small group of pages at a time. You’ll get the feel of how many pages you can cut at once. I cut approximately 7-10 pages at a time . Continue to trace the pattern on the next uncut page and cut the entire book. Each book is all hand cut.
5. Take your 6” cut burlap ribbon and make a hole in the center of the ribbon for the dowel to go through . I push my scissors into the ribbon to make a hole. Put your 1/4” dowel through the ribbon and tie the ribbon around the dowel with the 12” piece of jute.
