This adorable Paper Bag Pumpkin is an easy and fun craft for kids to make. It’s the perfect pumpkin craft for Fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving.
My little boy enjoys making crafts with me, and this pumpkin bag craft was fun for us to make together.
We’re sharing how we made this pumpkin with all of you. We hope you like it!
The paper pumpkin can be used to decorate your home for fall or Halloween. You can even make a few of the paper pumpkins to decorate the Thanksgiving dinner table.
They make a great fun craft for children 8 years and older to make by themselves. Younger children will need adult supervision.
Supplies to Make A Paper Bag Pumpkin
- 1 Sheet of Green Construction Paper
- Orange Paint
- Sponge Brush

How to Make A Paper Bag Pumpkin
Additionally, this adorable pumpkin craft for kids would make a fantastic classroom or homeschool craft.
Teachers and parents could help each child in the class make a brown bag pumpkin. It’s such an inexpensive craft using brown paper lunch bags.
Each kid could be assigned to find a twig or stick for their pumpkin to use as a stem.
Ideally, this craft would make a great pumpkin STEM activity for kids, paired with these pumpkin books for kids.

Isn’t the paper bag pumpkin cute? You could also have your kids paint a face on their pumpkin to make the cutest Jack O Lanterns for Halloween.
Do you prefer the pumpkin with the ribbon or without the ribbon? Tell us below in the comments which paper bag pumpkin you prefer.
Personally, I love the pumpkin with a pretty ribbon tied to it.
