Make a little paper pumpkin with this free pumpkin printable paper craft. It’s a fun, interactive pumpkin crafts. Kids can cut, glue and build a whole set of these pumpkin blocks, mixing and matching the faces or drawing their own.
I used paper in the examples I made, but I recommend using a thicker paper or cardstock for a more sturdy pumpkin that the kids can play with longer.
Pumpkin Printable Paper Craft
This little paper craft project comes with 3 extra faces you can use on the block or as stand alone pieces for Halloween and pumpkin play.
Not only does it make super cute decor or one of our many Halloween crafts, but it also makes a good gift box or treat box!
Supplies You’ll Need to Make This Cute Pumpkin Craft
To assemble this block you will need:
Put the Pumpkin Block Together:
- Download and print the project sheet.
- Cut out all the pieces.
- Fold the box and glue the side together. Optionally, glue the bottom and top in place.
- To make the stem, cut along lines as directed on the printable page. Roll the stem paper into a tube and glue in place. Fold the fringe piece and apply glue to the bottom side, place on top of the pumpkin block to adhere.
The block pattern can also be used as a little treat box.
Make sure to glue the side and bottom together but leave the top un-glued so that you can open it and fill with whatever treats you’d like.
This is perfect for 2020, especially with Halloween coming up. So many people are nervous or trying to find ways to safely hand out candy this year and I think making some of these would be the perfect way.
You could easily make some of these mini pumpkin printables and fill them up with Halloween treats and leave them on a decorated table. You can social distance and kids can trick or treat!
I think because of it helping with social distancing, but still being fun, it is now one of my favorite fall crafts for kids.
This project is great for scissor and paper construction practice. You might need to help with the cutting and then encourage your child to help fold and glue the box together.
You can make piles of these little paper pumpkins, just print out multiple copies of the pumpkin printable.
