Putting this 3d paper pumpkin decoration together is super easy and takes about 15 minutes. The hardest part is waiting for the glue to dry.

Step 1: Make the Stem of the paper pumpkin

Take the brown strip of cardstock and train it to curl. Then roll it up tightly using a quilling pen or just your hands. Test to ensure the stem is tight enough to fit in the hole in the orange strips. Seal the flap closed.

Step 2: Make the Pumpkin Shape

Feed all the orange strips over the stem. Use the brown circle as the base of the pumpkin. The bottom 4 orange strips adhere to the top of the brown circle.
