Learn how to make an origami pumpkin box. This Halloween gift box is perfect to put your candy corns in! Made from just 2 sheets of square paper, no glue required.

This origami pumpkin box is a modification of my origami egg box design.

Also looks like a bell pepper, apple, tomato or other round fruit with a stem.

The green on the stalk was an afterthought… you can get the right size for that little green square by dividing your larger paper by 3.33
