These pumpkins are quite the conversation starters!
I once saw a picture of book pumpkins in a magazine and thought "I can make those", so I did. I bought my books for .10 each a yard sale and as I was looking through the woman's box she asked me what type of book I was looking for. I responded with "The fattest ones so I can make pumpkins out of them"... LOL I got quite the funny look.
These are very time consuming, but get the kids involved or do it while watching netflix.
All you do is fold every single page in half one by one. For the tapered pumpkin you first fold the corner down and then fold the page in half. Next you staple the front and back covers together forming your cylinder. The faces, stems and leaves are simply black construction paper hot glued to the book.
I made these several years ago and they're still holding up well. I hope you have a fabulous, creepy Halloween.
