Here's what you'll need:

  • Popsicle Sticks
  • Glue
  • Orange Paint Dabber
  • Paint Brush
  • Scissors
  • Brown/Green Cardstock

First you will want to assemble the base of your pumpkins. For each pumpkin, simply glue nine popsicle sticks together to look like a fence {seven laid next to each other with two across} Set aside to let it dry completely.

Now you are ready for the paint! Have children take their paint dabber and paint the front of the popsicle stick fence completely orange.

To finish off the Popsicle Stick Pumpkins - cut out a pumpkin stem from the brown and green cardstock. Glue those pieces to the top. Set it all aside to let it dry completely before displaying proudly.

If desired, you can add some Jack-O-Lantern features to the front or let kids add other embellishments like glitter, rhinestones, feathers etc. to really give it a customized look!

For displaying - the finished pieces stand pretty nice when leaned against something but you can also add some ribbon to the back to hang it OR add magnets so you can display them on the fridge!
