This pumpkin paper plate lacing craft was inspired by an apple version that I spotted and I knew that it would be perfect for pumpkins and for working on fine motor skills.  Plus they look super cute too.

First off you need to punch the holes into the paper plate.  For younger children you might want to add fewer hole or even make a smaller pumpkin, which you do by cutting the paper plate smaller.

Then you lacing your yarn through the punched holes.  You can do this in a pattern or random and even go through some of the holes more than once.   You can tie off your yarn at the back and then continue with more.  The more yarn you add the denser the colour.

Then it is time to add the stalk and leaves, which we made with large craft sticks and pipe cleaners wrapped round a pencil to make them into spirals.

We then attached the stalk to the back of our paper plates using our trusty Blu Tack Glu dots (UK Link/US Link).  The great thing about glu dots is they are instant fix, so no need to wait until they adhere, perfect for projects like this one.
