It’s starting to feel more and more like fall every day here in Minnesota! Our summer heat was short and now we have some beautiful weather in the 70’s and 80’s, which is perfect if you ask me! This cooler weather really puts me in the mood for fall decorating and starting our crafts so today I have a simple Pumpkin Washi Tape Garland project to share with you.
This garland is easy enough to use as a fall craft for kids and get them involved in the project. I love simple projects like this that require very few materials and take minutes to make.
If you are like me, you have rolls and rolls of Washi Tape and you are always on the look out for things to make just to use those rolls. Last count, I had 42 rolls. Serious people, this is an addiction and I hope I’m not the only one!
I used several of my orange colored tape to make this simple pumpkin garland for our fall decorating.
How to Make Pumpkin Washi Tape Garland
Materials You Need
Pumpkin Printable (click the link to open in another page and print)
Step 1 – Print out your Pumpkin page
Step 2 – Cover each pumpkin with Washi Tape, you can use all one color on the pumpkin or use multiple colors on each pumpkin. I did both.
Step 3 – You can easily still see the lines of your pumpkin, so carefully cut it out following the lines.
Step 4- Continue this process with all the pumpkins, you can do as many as you want depending on how long you want your garland to be.
Step 5 – Punch a hole in the top of each pumpkin.
Step 6 – Run your ribbon through all the pumpkins so they are all strung together. Hang up your garland and enjoy your simple and inexpensive fall decoration.
This is a simple little craft that you can use to make garland for your fireplace, over your windows or just on your bulletin board. You can also use the pumpkins to make greeting cards, decorate gift bags and so much more! How would you use them?
