Punch Art Pumpkin Instructions

If you missed Saturday's Punch Art Pumpkin Demo, here's the instructions.

Pumpkin Place Setting Tutorial

  • For Round Pumpkins
    • 1 1/2" Circle Punch
    • 3/4 X 1 1/2" Oval Punch


Ink the edges of your pumpkin in a matching orange color.  Tim Holtz Rusty Hinge was used on these pumpkins.

Using a clear adhesive dot, adhere your 5 punched circles as shown above. 3 on the left and 2 on the right.  Place a clear dot on the front of your pumpkin on the set on the right. Now, just slide the right pair behind the set of 3 circles on the left and adhere. Now add your small oval shape onto the group in the front, adhere with a clear dot.


Cut a little stem approx. 1/4” wide from the Textured Brown cardstock and adhere with a drop of glue or clear dot between the 2 sections of pumpkin pieces, in the middle.

Punch 3 to 6 leaves from Martha Stewart's Rose Leaf Punch, ink the edges (Tim Holtz Peeled Paint) the same as the pumpkin shapes.


Repeat same steps for the Oval Pumpkin, using 1 1/4 X 2" Oval Punch and punching 5 ovals.clip_image007

Easel Back: Cut a piece of chipboard 1 3/4" by 1".  Score at 1/4" on the 1" width and adhere to the back of your pumpkins.

Here's your completed Name Place Setting…

Add curliques if you'd like…
With your trimmer, cut some strips to 1/8" to 1/4" inch wide and using your scissors blade, curl like you would curly ribbon for a present and attach to the rear of the pumpkins.  Or you can use a Quilling Tool.

If you attended last years October Retreat you'll remember this mask…Halloween Eye Mask, Punch Art Pumpkin, Scrapadoodle, Carla's Scraps (2)_thumb
