PostItPumpkin2

As Little Miss C and I sat at the kitchen table today crafting together with a bit of a halloween theme inspiration struck. Still on our patio windows were the letters that we put up when we reviewed Post-it Notes a few weeks back and as I looked at the orange and green colours I realised that I had the perfect materials to make a giant Post-it Note pumpkin.

All you need to make this is:

  • Orange Post-It Notes
  • Green Post-It Notes
  • Black paper/card
  • Glue or double sided sticky tape
  • A large wall or window space

Arrange the orange Post-it Notes in a roughly round shape. You could make it a bit flatter at the bottom if you wish. Add some green Post-it Notes at the top to form a stalk.

Take your black paper / card and cut out three triangles (two for eyes and one for the nose) and a mouth shape. Use either glue or double sided sticky tape to attach them on to the orange Post-it Notes.

Ta-da! One complete Post-it Note pumpkin. 

If you're feeling really clever you could try to create it in reverse so that it could go in a window and be seen from outside. I'm wondering about a smaller version for the square glass panel in our front door.

Happy Halloween!
