Halloween is approaching and it’s time to start getting in the spooky spirit! After you’ve spent the day picking out your perfect pumpkins at the pumpkin patch, it’s time to get carving! Settle down with some warm apple cider and your utensils to get ready to decorate. Follow our easy, DIY pumpkin carving and craft guide for a Fall day well spent with your family!
1. DIY Halloween Pumpkin Craft
To start your craft, grab some orange and green construction paper and get ready to craft some 3D pumpkins for your at-home decorations!
First, you’re going to start by laying out the orange construction paper and grabbing your Stanley Guppy 5” Kids Scissors to cut the paper into 6 even strips.
Once the construction paper has been cut into 6 even pieces, grab your orange Dynamo Compact Stapler and staple the bottom of the strips together.
Then, you’re going to fold the 6 strips up so that they meet at the top in a 3D circle and staple the top together. Use the scissors to cut a handle with a smaller strip of green construction paper and staple this to the top, creating a stem for your pumpkin.
Finally, use your orange Multi-Mount Manual Sharpener to sharpen your pencils or colored pencils and draw a face across two of your orange strips, completing your Jack-O’-Lantern!
