Paper Fan Pumpkin Decorations - Simple Halloween Paper Craft for Kids - Our Little House in the Country  While my little girl was taking a surprise nap this morning I had some fun experimenting with paper to see what pumpkin decorations I could make.  I must admit that I was delighted with how these decorations turned out!  They look great and are definitely suitable for the kids to make themselves too!

  • make a smaller green fan – 4 or 5 folds
  • attach this to the orange circle or pumpkin with a staple
  • if desired add a Halloween embellishment to the centre.  We actually used little plastic bat rings that were part of a 90 piece set of Halloween accessories that I bought for 2 euro in a discount store.
  • these make great hanging decorations – to hang, secure some thread with tape to the green stalk and hang from the ceiling etc!Paper Fan Pumpkin Decorations - Simple Halloween Paper Craft for Kids - Our Little House in the Country
