Put a twist on a traditional fall wedding decoration and make these Pretty Paper Pumpkins. This DIY wedding project contains a step-by-step pictorial on how to craft pumpkin decorations from old books. These paper book pumpkins would make great DIY fall centerpieces. Attach tags to the stems and these pumpkins would also make fabulous DIY place cards for a vintage-themed bridal shower. You could also add optional embellishments to this paper craft like rolling the stem in glitter or tying some raffia ribbon around the top. If you’re looking for upcycled craft ideas, you can’t beat these book-inspired pumpkins.

Clever craft and good for upcycling as well! Take this basic idea a step further and paint the paper the color you prefer, or even change up the shape a little bit to convert it to another fruit, an apple, red, green, yellow, to extend your decor items. This would be a fun girls night project too! Thanks for sharing!
