Ghoulish Pumpkins - PROJECT

No Carve Pumpkin Project

Designed By: Uchida of America, Corp.
Skill Level: Beginner

Materials:

  • Colored card stock, your choice,
Pumpkin – orange, white, cream, beige,
Face – brown, black, or white with the face drawn in.
 Stem – green or brown
  • Marvy® Scalloped oval: We used Giga craft punch, but size is your choice. Depends on how large or small you want the pumpkins to be.
  • Marvy® Merchandise tag: We used Giga craft punch, but size is your choice. Depends on how large or small you want the pumpkins to be.
  • Marvy® Embossing leaf punch - grape or maple.
  • Craft glue
  • Craft brush or popsicle stick for applying glue.


Instructions:

  1. Punch out about 24 “Giga” scallop ovals. (How many used will depend on how full want the pumpkin to look.)
  2. Fold each oval in half.
  3. Glue ovals together, back-to-back, one next to the other.
  4. When complete, stack and bind folded ovals with a rubber band, securing all parallel to the folded straight edge. Make sure there are no gaps along the folded straight edge.
  5. Spread craft glue along the straight edge; as in bookbinding and allow to dry for several hours.
  6. Once dry, stand the folded edge up, form a circle and glue the open ends back-to-back. This should form an oval sphere.
  7. For the pumpkin face, use 1⁄2” circle and/or oval punches to cut eyes and mouth from contrasting cardstock. Glue on the oval sphere. Or draw a funny face on a white cardstock, cut it and glue to pumpkin.
  8. For a stem, roll a small green cardstock cone and glue it into the center of the oval sphere. A twig, chenille stem or dowel can also be used.
  9. Punch out leaf and glue to the stem.
