DIY Mini paper pumpkin


I came up with this quick craft idea. It's so easy to make! You can even put some candy inside and give it to someone as a gift. Or you can leave it empty and use it as decoration.
El otro día se me ocurrió está idea, que es super fácil de hacer. Puedes poner caramelos dentro y regalárselo a alguien. O puedes dejarlo vacío y usarlo de adorno.

All you need is:
Sólo necesitas:
  • Orange and green paper
    Papel naranja y verde
  • Glue
  • Scissors or an x-acto knife
    Tijeras o cutter
Cut the paper into stripes (mine were approximately 1.5cm wide) and paste two stripes forming a + .
Corta el papel en varias tiras (las mías tenían 1.5cm aprox de ancho) y pega dos formando una +.

Paste all the other stripes forming a circle.
Pega todos los demás formando un círculo.

Bring two ends to the top and glue them. Then glue all the other ends on top.
Dobla dos de los extremos hacia delante y pégalos. Luego, pega todos los demás extremos.

I then cut a small green circle and pasted it on top. This both helps cover up the ends and looks like a leaf. To make the stem I cut a thin and long piece of green paper and curled it using my scissors.
Luego, he cortado un círculo verde pequeño y lo he pegado encima. Con esto, cubres los extremos y parece más o menos una hoja. Para hacer el rabito, he cortado un trozo de papel verde largo y finito y lo he rizado usando las tijeras.

If you don't know how to curl paper ribbons using scissors, you can watch this video.
Si no sabes rizar lazos de papel con las tijeras, puedes ver este video.

And... That's all! I hope you liked it!
Y... ¡Eso es todo! Espero que os haya gustado.

By the way, guess what day it is today! That's right: it's October 3rd! Do I like Mean Girls a little too much? Probably.
