How to make a Halloween construction paper tree:
These step by step instructions will walk you through the process of creating your 3D tree. Then watch the video at the end to see it all in action!
Start by cutting your black construction paper into strips. No need to measure, just make sure you have one that is extra wide for your trunk.
Take that wider strip and cut it in half lengthwise. Glue one-half down to your piece of paper.
Glue all of your branches to the top of your trunk. Make sure they go straight out and in different directions!
Then glue on the other half of the trunk.

Use the 1.5″ hole punch to create a moon and attach it anywhere up in the sky. Now start folding your branches.
Just crease them back and forth 2-4 times each.
Then attach with a bit of glue at the end of the strip.
Make sure to hold down the branch and count to 10 to make sure it gets a good stick! Work your way around to every branch. Before you know it you have a paper 3D tree!
When you are finished with your tree you can cut and add little leaves at the base.

To create a pumpkin, punch 4 circles. Glue down 2 circles, side by side, at the base. Then glue one on top in the middle. Cut and add a small stem. Using your last circle, use your punch or scissors to remove the edge on one side.
Place this in the center of your pumpkin.
