Pumpkins are a colorful, traditional fall symbol. Kids create this beautiful seasonal decoration for a Halloween party or to grace your Thanksgiving table.
Choose a few sheets of construction paper in harvest colors, such as orange, yellow, and brown, or use white paper. Color the paper with Crayola® Twistables™ Crayons, layering different Halloween colors over each other for a rich, multi-layered effect.

Cut green construction paper, crayon-colored paper, or a paper bag into the size of a large index card. Roll the paper into a cylinder, and insert into the top of the central core for a stem. Glue it in place.
Cut paper leaves and vines. Arrange in a pleasing way to complete your unique centerpiece.
