Welcome to Day #4 of my 10 Days Of Halloween Projects. If you missed my first 3 days, you can view them here:

Today I'm going to change things up a bit. Instead of a treat holder, I'm showing you a decorative item. This project could be given along with a treat holder if you opt to go that route. If you have someone that doesn't like treats, this could be a sweet alternative:

I created 5 layers of rosette's glued to each other to resemble a pumpkin and then decorated the top. The stem inside the center of the pumpkin is an actual stick that I found in my back yard: 

A glue gun is your best bet when gluing all of the rosette's in place.  Here are the steps to creating the rosette's:

You will need the following strips and supplies. The strips of paper are from the Spooky Night Designer Paper:

  • (1) 12" x 1"
  • (2) 12" x 1-1/4"
  • (2) 12" x 1-1/2"
  • (5) Basic Black Cardstock circles cut with the 1-3/4" Circle Punch
  • Hot Glue Gun
Score each strip at every 1/2" mark on the Simply Scored Scoring Tool. Once all of the score lines have been created, fold accordion style and glue the ends together. Repeat for all 5 strips. This is what you strips should look like:

Make sure your glue gun is plugged in and ready to go for the next step. Press the edges of the rosette flat so that it looks like the photo below making sure the side you want showing at the top is upside-down. If you gather the folds and push towards the center, your rosette will lay flat pretty easily. 

Add a big dollop of hot glue in the center and press one of the cardstock circles in place. I used a Craft Mat under my rosette's and a 2nd Craft Mat to press on the top of the circle as it gets really hot! Hold for a few minutes.

This is what your completed rosette looks like when flipped over to the right side of the designer paper:

Glue rosette's together on top of each other to shape your pumpkin. Start with a 1-1/4" strip followed by two 1-1/2" strips, 1-1/4" strip and the 1" strip goes on top:

Decorate the top to your liking. I pushed a small branch through the hole at the top first and then added die-cut swirls and branches using the Patterned Pumpkin Thinlits Dies. The cardstock colors I used are Crushed Curry and Old Olive:
