Last Minute Halloween Craft: Paper Pumpkin Garland

Halloween is next week and I have been busy wrapping up a few quick last minute crafts. Earlier this week I showed you a cute and festive pumpkin applique baby onesie which you can find here. Today, I want to share another quick and easy craft. My Paper Pumpkin Garland with washi tape.

I’m headed to a fun trunk or treat party this weekend and I needed a little decoration for my trunk. I whipped up this cute garland in about a half hour. Super cute. Super quick. Super easy. What more could you ask for?

To make this garland you’ll need a few supplies:

Orange card stock (1 and half 12×12 sheets – my pumpkins were about 2″x2″)

Washi tape


Hot glue gun


Once you have your pumpkins cut out (I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the pumpkins) you are ready to go. To assemble this garland simply hot glue a line on the back the pumpkin and stick the jute to the hot glue. Spacing every 2 inches or so, wrap a piece of washi tape around the jute and stick it to itself. Then, cut off a little triangle from the tape to give it a flag look. Continue until you have garland your desired length.

See, I told you it was easy!

Now hurry and go make some before YOUR Halloween party!
