The first day of autumn is less than two weeks away and when I think fall, I think pumpkins. How cute are these pumpkin straw toppers? With a few simple changes, a 3d pumpkin from the Silhouette Design Store will fit perfectly on a paper straw, making these orange beauties perfect for any fall gatherings you might be planning!

Here’s what you will need to recreate these pumpkin straws.

  • Start by opening design #33590 in Silhouette Studio.
  • Size down the pumpkin design to 5.6 inches tall by 3.7 inches wide.
  • Now since this 3d pumpkin wasn’t meant to be a straw topper, you will need to change the sizes of all the circles. The standard size of most paper straws is about .26 and if you look real close at the picture above, you can see that’s what I sized mine to.
  • The circles on the leaves will also need to be sized to .26 to fit around the straw.

  • Cut the pumpkin design from orange cardstock and the leaves from green cardstock.
  • I also cut long, quarter inch strips (wide) of green cardstock to make curlicues for the tops of the pumpkins.
  • Assembling is easy! Starting at the bottom of the pumpkin, poke the straw through each hole, making a sphere.
  • The leaves simply slide on over the pumpkin and the green curlicue is secured with a teeny-tiny dab of hot glue.

Hello, I'm Brie (like the cheese) and you can find me blogging over at like-the-cheese.com, a place where I can catalog my favorite projects and post anything I'm passionate about. My brain usually has way too many project tabs open at once, but I absolutely love doing anything that deals with DIY crafts, parties, yummy food, paper making, decor, design, and really good photography. I currently reside in Ogden, Utah and have been married for 5 years now to a good look'n hunk, whom I gave my number to at a bakery I used to work at (written on a PB&J sandwich). I also love Dr. Pepper and chocolate (insert flavor here) cupcakes.

  1. These are adorable, Brie! (I could tell this was your project as soon as I saw the first photo.)

  3. I can’t wait to make these. They are so cute! I just love 3-D paper crafting and Fall. Thank you!

  4. When you size to the 5.6 x 3.7, is that without the leaves? If so, what do you size those to?
