DIY Book Pumpkin Craft


I made a simple DIY book pumpkin this year. It's been on my "want to try list" for the longest time. It was easy and cost nothing because I had everything I needed to make it already. Most importantly I did the entire crafty paper pumpkin project in under an hour!

This craft was guilt free since my book was already falling apart when I decided to make a pumkin!

    This is so cute an looks easy. You did a great job. I have lots of old books! Did you just glue the stem on top or stick it down the middle of the book and glue?
