Halloween pumpkin garland

This simple paper craft will add a much needed touch of colour to your Halloween decorations. Get the kids round the craft table and make this simple pumpkin garland for your front door this Halloween.

What you need:

  • 2 x sheets of orange construction paper
  • 1 x sheet of green construction paper
  • 4 x orange pipe cleaners
  • jute string (about 50cm)
  • glue
  • scissors
  • stapler
  • hole punch

Number of players:


Cut your orange craft paper into 10 strips: 3cm x 15cm.

Form each strip into a circle and staple it in place.

Punch two holes in each loop: one in the top, one in the bottom.

Now cut each pipe cleaner into three sections.  Thread each section through the holes in the circle, and form a loop at the top (to hang each pumpkin.)

Cut leaf shapes from the green paper and glue them to the pumpkins.

String your pumpkins onto the jute string and hang across your door for Halloween.
