my inspiration came from paper source (i don’t think i’m able capable of original ideas, they are all taken!)… they were selling these cute pumpkin place card kits. but at 12 bucks a pop, i decided i was better off figuring it out on my own.
they were pretty simple to make after i got my supplies: pumpkin-ey colored paper, a small hole punch, floral wire & fake leaves (i found everything at michaels). all i did was cut the paper into 1-inch strips. then i proceeded to punch a hole at both ends of the strips. i stacked the strips on top of one another, creating a small pile of strips. next, i fed the wire through the bottom hole of every strip & then the top hole as well. you then kinda push down on the top of the papers & fan them out like a pumpkin. once you have your desired shape coil the ends of the wire so that your holes won’t slip off & add a leaf or two.
okay, so it might sound a little complicated, but it really isn’t. once you start making them, it will totally make sense & come together quickly. if you get stuck or are confused, just shoot me an email & i’ll do my darnedest to explain it better!
