How to make it:

1. Take the black construction paper, fold it in half and cut it. Cut points at the bottom of the paper.

2. Cut out a pumpkin outline. Start gluing strips of orange construction paper, alternating the colours. Strips of paper should go past the pumpkin shape.

3. Flip the pumpkin around once all strips of paper are glued. Cut the strips to match the outline of the pumpkin.

4. Use the remainder of the black construction paper to make eyes, mouth and a nose for your pumpkin. Add googly eyes if desired.

5. Punch holes at the top of the banner and attach the string.
