Virginie from That Cute Little Cake is here with a wonderfully creative paper straw craft, perfect for Halloween and Thanksgiving.

With Halloween right around the corner I have been thinking of fun ways to decorate straws for a party, and since I love pumpkins, I created these super cute 3D pumpkin straw embellishments!

They look fabulous and yet they are super easy to make !!!

3D pumpkin straw supplies


  • Assortment of orange cardstock (I used textured, glittered, and patterned)
  • One sheet of green cardstock
  • Paper straws
  •  Glue, scissors, tape
  • Optional: Glitter

To finish off, wrap the pumpkin around the straw and secure by gluing the first shape to the last.

To add a bit of sparkle… Before gluing the pumpkin around the straw, apply craft glue to the edges with a brush, and dip in glitter.

I had a lot of fun experimenting with different papers (glittered, patterned…). You can certainly match any color scheme with your choice of paper, and either use a colorful palette for Halloween or a more rustic one for Thanksgiving.
