If you have old books laying around here is a great way to use them! I found this idea on Creations By Kara. Kara is very creative, her blog has some really incredible crafts, decor and recipes. She also has great tutorials. You should check out her blog.
All of my pumpkins came from one book. I bought a paperback book of about 750 pages, I think it was about $2. Each pumpkin has about 250 pages. The tutorial on Kara’s blog is greatly detailed, so if you want any more information on how to make these pumpkins, check it out HERE.
I also have to say that I LOVE Krylon, not sure if I have ever mentioned that! I used a light dusting of Krylon Pumpkin Orange Gloss Spray paint to give these super cute pumpkins a little life.
They were so easy to make. Give it a try and let me know what you came up with. I think a smaller one shaped like an apple and painted red would make a really good teachers gift!

If I make a pumpkin will you spray paint it? I am defiantly not a skilled sprayer of paint. I think a pear would be super cute also.
Thanks so much for linking back to my pumpkin tutorial. 🙂
I love how yours turned out! Where did you get those curvy stems? They are awesome! I also love how you made them all different sizes. They look so cute as a grouping. Nice job!!
