Origami Pumpkin Step by step tutorial

- Open up the paper’s fold/
- Take the right corner, bring it over the left corner and vertically fold it in half.
- Open the fold again.
- Fold the origami paper in the middle (fold it in half).
- Open the fold, which creates two creases on the left and right sides.
- Fold the origami paper along the creases we made in the previous process.
- This folding will create a triangular shape.
- Take the top left point, and bring it downwards to the bottom point.
- Similarly, take the right top point and bring it down to the middle bottom point.
- Flip the origami folder piece to the other side, and fold the top left point to the bottom.
- And, also fold the top right point to the bottom. Now we have a square shape.
- Fold in the left corner to the middle line.
- Then, bring the right corner to the middle line and fold it there.
- Flip the piece over and repeat the same process on the left and right corners.
- Take the bottom flap from the left and fold it outwards along the line.
- Fold the excess part inwards and fold it along the outer line.
- Take the left corner and open the gap between the folded part. Then, take folded flap (step 5.2) and put it inside the gap.
- Similarly, fold the right flap inside the gap. And repeat the same process on the other side of the origami paper.
After making all the folds you will notice a hole on the top part of the origami folded piece, blow air into the hole to inflate the origami piece to give it your origami pumpkin shape.
Step 7: How To Make The Stem:
Cut out a rectangular-shaped green craft paper to make the stem.
Start rolling the craft paper from one corner/
Roll the whole piece to make the pumpkin stem, and apply glue to secure the roll.

Fold the leaf in half.
Make some zigzag folds on the leaf.
Open up the fold to reveal your leaf.
Put the paper stem of the pumpkin through the hole we used to inflate the pumpkin. And, glue the leaf on the stem.
Step 9: How To Make Swirly Vines:
Cut out strips of green craft papers.
Use a quilling tool to roll the green paper strip.
