The weather is getting cooler and it's just right for a cozy quilt! We used several different shapes and textures in a patchwork design for the vegetable of the season - pumpkins!

Start with:

  • Textured and Plain Cardboard
  • Paint
  • Paintbrush
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Cardstock, optional for eyes

Create it!

Step 1: Cut pumpkin shape(s) out of cardboard.

Step 2: Paint variety of cardboard in multiple shades of orange. We used textured cardboard and rolled a paper towel tube in paint, cut in half and flattened. Allow to dry.

Step 3: Cut cardboard pieces into squares and rectangles.

Step 4: Glue painted shapes to cardboard pumpkin shape in a patchwork design.

Step 5:Trim the edges of the patchwork pieces.

Step 6: Cut stem shape from cardboard. Paint, allow to dry and glue to pumpkin.

Step 7: Optional, add eyes, nose and/or mouth to pumpkin from cardstock or cardboard. 

It's really fun fitting the pattern together and such interesting texture once finished!
