Pumpkin Decor

while these may have been shared as a Halloween décor I believe they would look great for Thanksgiving as well.

1-2 pieces of orange construction paper
1 piece of green construction paper
 1 piece of brown construction paper
 paper cutter (optional)
 paper clips and/or stapler

 Cut the orange pieces of construction paper into 1″ wide strips (each strip will be 1″ x 11″). Then, shorten some of the strips so that you have (1) 6″, (2) 7″, (2) 9″, and (2) 11″ long pieces.
Gather the strips of paper together (with the ends flush) and place the smallest one in the middle. Order them by size so that the largest strip is on the outside. Secure with a paper clip or staple (I prefer the paper clip so that I can keep adding more elements). Line up the opposite ends so that they are together like the top.
Cut a brown strip of paper 1/4″ by 3″ long for the stem. To make it curl, wrap the paper around a pencil and hold it in place while you count to 20 (or sing the ABC song).
Cut out two leaf shapes from the green paper (ours were sort of like pairs of bunny ears).
Add the stem, leaves, and a piece of string to the paper clip at the top.
Hang up and enjoy!
