The Great Pumpkin Hop Day 2 Paper Pumpkins

Hello all,
Welcome to the 2nd day of the GREAT PUMPKIN Blog hop. If you missed yesterday's post, please scroll down.  This HOP is all about the pumpkins!! NO witches, NO haunted houses ... 100% pumpkins/100% of the time!! For this hop, PLEASE make anything that focuses on PUMPKINS. Can be anything altered, handmade, card, 12 x 12 pages , 8 x 8 pages, minis, etc.   If you arrived from Christina, you are in the right place, otherwise start with Amy.
Pumpkin Hop
I love Halloween so much because when I was growing up in Germany we did not celebrate Halloween there, so I didn't get the opportunity to go trick or treat when I was a child.  When I moved to the US, I was 16 years old, so I was a tad bit too old to trick or treat. :(  After having children I made sure that every Halloween was special...with homemade or store bought costumes, decorations, parties and lots and lots of candy...you name it, my kids had it.  My youngest is 11 now and he claims he's too old for trick or treating, but we shall see...there's two more days for him to change his mind.  HeheheWith the halloween season just around the corner, I wanted to make some pumpkins.  I used a scallop cut file for the pumpkins.  I sponged them to give them some depth.  Then I folded them and glued together.  My DS inserted the pipe cleaners in the middle and I attached a leaf.  Viola...pumpkins.  Much less messy than carving. 
I also cut some scrap strips of paper and 
ran them through my crimper to give the look of grass.  
Three different sizes and shapes
This is my favorite one.  
Now I hope you liked my paper Pumpkins.  Your next stop will be Jamie and if you get lost, the entire lineup is below.
