String of Pumpkins

This fun to make craft will give you a string of pumpkins to hang around a room. These simple-to-make strings make a great Halloween decoration. You can drape the strings across rooms, over windows and from the chandeliers.

What you will need:

•Orange and black construction paper
•Crayons or markers
•Scissors
•Glue, tape, or staples
•A long piece of green or black yarn or string

Directions for the project- Draw a pumpkins face on a piece of orange paper. Make sure that you draw a long stem on the top (your pumpkin will hang from this stem, which will be folded over). Repeat this for as many pumpkins as you want hanging from your string. Cut out the pumpkins. You can then make eyes, a nose, and a mouth from black paper (or use a black crayon or marker). Fold the pumpkin’s stem in half. Attach the pumpkin to a long string. Using green string for the pumpkins looks great! Attach the pumpkins using tape, glue, or staples.
