Pumpkin Patch Poms Craft
These tissue paper pumpkins are fun decorations for the fall and are also cute as placecards! You can make a whole pumpkin patch in no time!
- orange tissue paper
- green pipe cleaner
- optional: cardstock and hole puncher if making placecards
Cut tissue paper into six 3x5 inch rectangles. Fold into 10 segments accordian-style.
Fold the pipe cleaner in half. Place folded tissue paper in the middle of the folded pipe cleaner. Twist pipe cleaner at the top to leave a "stem". Fasten tissue paper by twisting pipe cleaner at the other end.
Fan out the two halves of the folded tissue paper into a circle. Take first sheet of tissue paper and pull upwards towards the stem. Do the same for the other half circle. Continue to pull up a total of three layers of tissue paper.
Then proceed to pull down the remaining layers of tissue paper towards the bottom of the pumpkin, one layer at a time.
Holding the pumpkin by the stem, fluff the layers.
To make the pumpkin into a placecard, cut a piece of cardstock. Punch a hold at one end. Cut a slit from the hole to the edge of the cardstock. Write the name on the cardstock.
Slip the cardstock onto the pumpkin stem.
