I recently made this cute little pumpkin from a paperback book, and shared it with my MOPS group. It was easy to make and a lot of fun seeing how everyone’s pumpkins turned out since each one is different.
Here is how I made mine….
Old paperback book
hot glue gun
tea bag or paint (optional)
You will have to continue cutting until you reach the end of the book. Trim all the little bits of paper (although I personally like the way this looks)
Make some tea!
With the tea bag, stain the pages of the book
Glue some pages around the stick so it makes a round pumpkin shape.
(note: my pumpkin will sit on a shelf, so for this purpose it's better if the back is flat. If your pumpkin will sit on a desk or table, you will need to glue the back).
