|Square Pumpkin Craft Activity|
- Orange paper cut into a square
- Small green paper rectangle
- 2 wiggly eyes
- 1 green pipe cleaner
- 2 gold pipe cleaners
Shape the gold pipe cleaners to form the mouth and nose. I used one whole piece for the mouth and a smaller piece (about 3 inches) for the nose. The nose is a triangle with rounded points. Have fun shaping the pieces in different ways to create various expressions. Next, add the wiggly eyes. I chose to make them slightly uneven for a whimsical look.
To create the vine, twist the green pipe cleaner around a pencil or pen. This will form a nice spiral curl.
Glue the curled vine piece to the top of the pumpkin right where the stem will go. Flatten out the bottom end so that the green stem will be smooth on top of it.
Finally, add the small green rectangle to be the stem. It will cover the bottom of the vine. Shape the curl of the vine so that it twists to the side.
