Fall is here and I’m so ready for it! One of the things I love about autumn is harvest decorations. Adding some fall-themed decor around the house is a great way to feel instantly cozier. There’s no need to spend a lot of cash on store-bought seasonal decor. Some of my favorite decorations are the ones I’ve made. Today, I teamed up with Gorilla Super Glue Brush & Nozzle to show you how to make paper pumpkins. These 3-D pumpkins are easy and inexpensive to make and they look great grouped together on tables of shelves.
One of the easiest ways to ensure your craft projects turn out great is to use the right materials. Gorilla Super Glue Brush & Nozzle features 2 easy ways to dispense. There’s a fine bristle brush that offers controlled coverage with less mess and the precision tip nozzle for quick, easy dispensing. This feature comes in so handy! I use to have to buy 2 different bottles of glue to get the applicators I needed for my projects.
Gorilla Super Glue Brush and Nozzle is formulated with a thicker, controlled formula. It can be used on wood, metal, ceramic (not coffee cups or anything that would go in a dishwasher), rubber, leather, paper, and some plastics.

How to Make Paper Pumpkins
Print out the template and roughly cut it out. Fold your paper in half (or quarters depending on the size) and tape the template to the paper.
Cut the pumpkin out.
Repeat the above steps until you have 20 pumpkin pieces. Fold each one in half.
Layer the folded pieces one on top of another, making sure they line up at the seam. Use the binder clips to hold them together.
Use the Gorilla Glue brush to apply the adhesive to the folded side of the pumpkin. The brush easily covers all the edges while preventing drips. Let dry…this won’t take long, Gorilla Super Glue dries in seconds!
Remove the binder clips and the pumpkin out. Using the precision nozzle applicator, apply glue to the bottom of the twig and place on the middle of the pumpkin. Cut out 2 leaves using the template and glue them to the top near the stem.
