Looking for a quick, attractive autumn decoration – check out these easy-to-assemble DieCuts Paper Pumpkins!
I was drawn to these DieCuts Paper Pumpkins by DCWV when looking for some quick autumn decorations.
All I used is Tombow Mono Permanent Adhesive and the contents of the kit. Be sure to use permanent adhesive – the repostitionable/removable does not stick well on the glossy paper. You will probably need the permanent adhesive refill kit if you make all six pumpkins. I did use scissors to cut the twine and Quilt Pins for the stem (more on that later).
Punch the die cuts for the pumpkins and leaves from the glossy, quality paper. Decide which side of the double-side paper pieces you want to show, fold them in half and apply the adhesive to the side of the paper that will not show.
I assembled the largest pumpkin with adhesive between all sheets and glued the stem on as directed. Then, I realized they would be reusable from year to year if I glued all but one place and paper clipped it together at the bottom as shown.
Instead of gluing the stem on, I pushed a quilt pin with a large head into the stem.
By inserting the pin head into the center opening, the stem stayed in place and could be easily removed.
The DieCuts Paper Pumpkins kit makes six pumpkins with varied paper and sizes – and there are several extra leaf die cuts to spread around. I was impressed with the quality of the paper used and glad there were so easy to assemble!
