How to Make 3-D Pumpkins Using Card Stock and the Cricut

A special thanks to Martha Stewart for this great idea! My technique is a little different than hers and I just had to use the Cricut to make mine.

These pumpkins would be perfect for Halloween and/or Thanksgiving. Directions for three different sizes are included on my video.

This is the small pumpkin and it was super easy to make! Please scroll down to watch the video.

Nadia said...

Another GREAT project!
Did you just tie the two brads together with a slip knot on each end of the embroidery floss?

Debra said...

I love your blog. Just found it throught Cricut messageboard. I've marked you as a favorite and will be returning!

Linda Kaiser said...

Thanks everyone for the nice comments! Nadia, I tied a regular double knot, but a slip knot would work as well. Thanks for the great question.

I found your blog and I am so pleased I did! I love your creations. I know you posted the 3-D pumpkins last year, but I'm a late bloomer and just stumbled on to this post. You've inspired me to make some and I have posted pics on my blog. I linked back to your blog as my source of inspiration. TFS!
