This inflatable origami pumpkin is perfect to make at Halloween! It could also be other round fruits & veg such as an orange or tomato! Made from 1 sheet of paper.
This is the same method as the origami apple, except we’ll start with hexagonal paper instead of a pentagon.
Don’t worry, making a hexagon is easy and shown at the start, you just need a square sheet to start with.
The origami witches hat tutorial is here (start with same size paper).
I actually could not find any decent orange paper while I was making this origami pumpkin. I recommend crisp paper or thicker soft paper. 15 x 15 cm makes a nice small origami pumpkin. The larger paper was harder to work with!
Design: Paper Kawaii (variation on a regular water bomb)
You will need:
▸ 1 sheet of square paper
