Scroll down for step-by-step directions.
Draw and cut out your pumpkin. If you need a template, fold a sheet of paper in half and draw a half circle along the crease.
Cover both sides of your pumpkin from step 1. Repeat steps 1-2 so you have at least four pumpkins.
Cut a small slit at the top of one of your pumpkins. For the other three, cut a slit at the bottom about half way up. This is so you can slide your pumpkin pieces together.
Draw and cut out the top of your pumpkin on poster board. If you need a template, fold your sheet of paper into quarters and cut out a heart shape in the corner of the paper.
Cover the piece from step 4 in Duck Tape®.
Draw and cut out a circle from your poster board. Cover it with Duck Tape®.
Assemble your pumpkin. Gather the three pumpkins with slits on the bottom and slide them on the piece with the slit at the top. Fan out your pumpkin.
Using small pieces of tape, tape the top and bottom pieces onto the clover and round piece you made in step 5 and 6. The clover has eight round points, each to match the eight sides of the pumpkin.
For the stem, roll and twist small pieces of tape into a cone shape, leaving the bottom of the cone open and sticky.
Attach the stem to the top of your clover.
