Fall Pumpkin Wind Sock Craft

This craft was spontaneous because we had so many foam pumpkin stickers leftover.

You will need:

– 1 sheet of contruction paper (we chose light and dark green)

foam pumpkin stickers

double-sided tape

regular magic tape

– 1 colored pipe cleaner

2 Fun Pumpkin Crafts for Tots and Preschoolers

1. Stick the foam pumpkin stickers on the piece of construction paper.
2. Apply a strip of double-sided tape on one of the narrower ends of the construction paper.
3. Put the opposite end together so the double-sided tape holds it in a cylindrical shape.
4. Tape the pipe cleaner on the top (inside) of the cylinder with the magic tape. Bend the tip of the pipe cleaner up just a tiny bit to hold it in place.
5. Tape the other end of the pipe cleaner in the inside of the cylinder with magic tape and curl a tiny tip of the pipe cleaner up.
6. Find a spot to hang it on where it will be visible.

As you can see, these crafts are so easy to make and very easy on your budget, too.
