First you need pipecleaners- 5 orange, one green, and one brown. You also need some scissors.
Using one as your "main" pipecleaner, attach all the others to the middle by wrapping them around right in the middle.
Start like this:
OK so you just make an octopus looking thing- but we aren't done yet ☻
Now it is starting to look more like a carrot...☻
Just get the top ends all nice and even-folding them and wrapping them around each other.
Where the orange is on top is going to be our brown stem.
The green vine/leaf is wrapped just below.
At this point, it really does look like a carrot...until you spread all the sides out:
Cute! This is fun for older kids to do (meaning older than pre-school age), or younger kids (meaning pre-school age) can do this with a little supervision. Pipecleaners are made of wire, so the ends can be sharp, so watch those little fingers!
We made a little mobile out of these and hung it up. It would also make a cute little garland that could be hung in front of a window. Have fun crafting with your little pumpkins!
