Hey Lil’ Luna’ers!
We are Kelli & Kristi of Lolly Jane and are so excited to guest for our bloggy bestie, Kristyn 🙂

Our little corner of blogland is filled with home improvement tips, tutorials, furniture transformations, a recipe or two and of course, CRAFTS!  Speaking of before/afters… if you didn’t see our post on Kristyn’s home decor we snagged from her house and returned completely revamped, check it out here!  Muah ah ah 😉

As you all know, Kristyn is super creative.  Her paper accordions actually inspired today’s project, our framed accordion pumpkin:

We love how fall has transitioned from orange & browns to creamy whites, deep chocolates, grays, blues, greens with natural elements like twigs or wood.  With that in mind, we created this simple front door decor to display now throughout November.

you’ll need an extra large shabby frame, grapevine wreath, 15″ burlap (ends trimmed in V shape) and of course the cute accordion pumpkin to hang in the middle 🙂

Creating the pumpkin was a snap but a bit time consuming because of all that folding.  Well worth it, though!  The supplies used for this was 4 sheets of gray card stock, a sheet of fall paper, foam board to mat it on, lots of hot glue and a stick from the yard.

To begin, cut out a pumpkin shape (freehanded) from fall printed paper.
From there we cut 20 strips (2 strips glued together create one row) of solid gray card stock.  We had 10 rows of accordion strips, cut thicker for the middle and thinner as you worked your way out, and began the tedious folding of the strips.

We then began glueing onto the printed pumpkin shaped paper, one strip at a time.
It’s easiest to start in the middle and work your way out:

After the strips were glued together,
we snagged a stick from the yard and hot glued that to the center of the accordion pumpkin:

To make the accordion pumpkin extra sturdy, we glued it to a foam mat then cut the excess mat off.  From there we simply assembled the frame (tied a burlap bow around the wreath/frame) and tied jute around the stem of the pumpkin onto the burlap bow:

That’s it!

Easy project but makes a big statement when you walk into Kelli’s cute home:
