Paper Pumpkin Steps Graphic

  1. Cut orange paper into 1-1/2” wide strips, using paper cutter.
  2. Arrange seven strips in an asterisk shape with ends slightly overlapping in center, making sure they are even width apart. Apply Tacky Spray on one end at time and press together. Let dry.
  3. Pull up other ends to middle. Apply Tacky Spray on ends and place together. Let dry.
  4. Trace leaf pattern on green paper. Cut out with scissors.
  5. Use green marker to draw veins.
  6. Punch a hole at center bottom of leaf. Place a pipe cleaner through hole and twist end around pipe cleaner.
