How to Make Pumpkin Paper Lanterns

1. Download and enlarge the Leaf Template from Martha Stewart; cut out, and trace onto green paper. Cut out.

2. With white craft glue, attach a dark-green pipe cleaner to the leaf’s center. For curly tendrils, spiral two brown pipe cleaners around a marker, then slide off.

3. Attach leaf and tendrils to a paper lantern by winding the ends of the pipe cleaners around the wire frame. For stem, roll a few sheets of newspaper into a tapered shape; cut off wider end, then wrap other end with brown floral tape.

4. . Wrap another brown pipe cleaner around base of stem; secure ends to wire frame. Hang lanterns with fishing line.
