I love this Easy Paper Pumpkin Halloween Craft. This is a fun and frugal craft to do with the kids and an easy way to decorate for parties too! Best of all there really isn’t anything expensive about this craft. You most likely have all of the supplies on hand. If not you can purchase them at the local Dollar Store. These paper pumpkins can be used to decorate for Halloween parties or you can use them as a craft project. Just attach yarn to the top for hanging. This craft is perfect for small children ages 3+.
I like that it is not a scary Halloween craft but a fun craft idea instead. You can make it a Happy Halloween Pumpkin which is nice for kids of all ages. It would also be fun to make with seniors too! It is an easy craft to do with a group and teaches children how to accordion fold with help. I hope you enjoy this easy Paper Pumpkin Halloween Craft as much as we do! It is the perfect way to celebrate fall and Halloween with little out of pocket costs. Enjoy this easy decorating idea as they look cute hanging from the ceiling or in windows. I always say you don’t have to spend a lot to come up with ways to entertain kids during the holiday season.
