Paper plate laced pumpkin craft for kids

Inspired by our earlier paper plate spider web craft, this laced paper plate pumpkin is a real cutie. We love these lacing crafts, they’re so relaxed and often we make ours whilst lounging out on the sofas. My little guy particularly likes them as they give him a lot to focus on and think about. It may seem a little early to start on the halloween crafts but we have so many that we wanted to share that it’s never too early to start!

Heres what we used

  • Orange (or painted orange) Paper plate
  • Orange yarn
  • Black felt or card
  • Scissors
  • Glue
  • Hole punch

How to make our laced paper plate pumpkin craft.

Take your paper plate and cut out a large circle from the centre, leaving just a small edge of the inner plate.

Now take your hole punch and make several similary spaced holes around the inside of your paper plate.

Take a good length of orange yarn and sellotape one end to the back of your paper plate. Then take the other end of your yarn and begin threading it in and out of the holes. You could either follow a pattern of going from one side to the other or you could thread it at random as we did. Once you have threaded through each hole. Take the loose end and sellotape it to the back as you did before.

Now take your black felt (or card) and cut out the shapes for your pumpkin’s face. Use a dab of glue and attach it to the front of your laced yarn.
