What you’ll need to make your Halloween Pumpkin Garland:

  • A4 printer (or access to a printer)
  • 6 sheets of orange paper (I recommend 90-120gsm)
  • A scalpel or small scissors
  • An A4 cutting mat (or A3, whatever you have)
  • Double sided sticky tape (or staples, glue or sellotape to stick to the string)
  • String (or bakers twine or fishing wire)

How to cut your Halloween Pumpkin Garland:

First of all you’ll need to print your pumpkin sheets out. I recommend printing onto orange 90gsm – 120gsm paper. You can use slightly heavier paper or card stock if that’s all you have. But if it is super thick card it might start to hurt your fingers when cutting.

Make sure you have a self healing cutting mat. These are available in A4 and A3 sizes in most craft stores such as HobbyCraft or The Range. I’ve written more about it in this blogpost – How to papercut using papercutting templates.

You’ll need a scalpel – I use a swivel scalpel and a fixed blade, but it is up to you – works with whatever you’re comfortable with. I’ve written a blogpost about the tools you need for papercutting – so you can read more about scalpels here.

Cut your way through each pumpkin sheet following the printed step by step instructions. Print out as many pumpkins as you need. There’s x2 pumpkin faces per sheet, with 12 in total which makes roughly 1 to 2m of pumpkin garland depending on how spaced out you stick them to the string.

Relax and enjoy!
