Pumpkin magic

Today we had our 4H club meeting at our house, only we aren't really a 4H club anymore, but for lack of a better name, we still say 4H.  We did a really fun and easy fall craft. 

I first saw this on the Better Homes and Garden site and then on Etsy.  All is needed is an  old paperback book and a xacto knife.  

Trace this shape onto the middle of the book and cut around it with the xacto knife.  Then glue the spine together and color the edges orange.

You end up with a lot of paper scraps. 

Cut our leaf shapes from green felt, twist wire around a pencil for curly vines, add a stick from the yard and voila--it's a pumpkin!
