Nothing says the fall season quite like an old pickup truck straight from the farm. Except maybe pumpkins. That’s why we’ve loaded our Craft Stick Fall Truck Craft with giant pumpkins! Perfect for fall!
This is such a sweet craft, brought together with not much more than craft sticks and cardstock. We used already colored jumbo craft sticks, since we had them on hand, and colored 3 mini craft sticks to match, but you could simply paint them all the same color, too.
Looking for more great fall crafts? We have lots of ideas! A few of our favorites include this Craft Stick Scarecrow Craft, our Handprint Crow Craft, Cardboard Roll Fingerprint Fall Tree Craft, Simple Folded Paper Owls, and our Paper Bag Hedgehog Craft.
To make our Craft Stick Fall Truck Craft you will need jumbo craft sticks as well as mini craft sticks, markers, glue, cardstock in black, silver, orange, and brown, a 1” and ⅝” hole punch, and scissors.
Make a Fall Pickup Truck Craft with Giant Pumpkin
- Jumbo craft sticks, colored
- Mini craft sticks
- Markers – silver, dark orange, colors to match jumbo craft sticks
- Cardstock – black, silver, orange, brown
- 1” hole punch
- ⅝” hole punch
Begin by getting the craft sticks ready.
As mentioned, we used already colored jumbo sticks.
Then used markers to color 3 mini craft sticks to match. If using uncolored jumbo sticks you could simply paint them all to match.
Now, cut a piece of black cardstock.
Place the mini sticks as shown in the image, with the front stick at an angle, and glue in place. Trim the black cardstock around the edges if needed.
Use a silver marker to make reflection lines.
We used a scrap square of cardstock to glue our jumbo sticks to secure.
And glue the bottom of the mini sticks to the front half of the jumbo sticks.
Now, use the 1” hole punch to make circles from the black cardstock. Use the ⅝” punch to make smaller circles from the silver cardstock.
Glue the smaller circle in the center of the larger circle, then glue to the bottom of the jumbo sticks.
Now cut a circle from the orange paper.
Draw lines with a dark orange marker and cut a stem from the brown cardstock.
Glue the pumpkin in place on the back of the tail end of the truck. This will also further secure the sticks in place.
Make more trucks in more fun fall colors! Gotta love the giant pumpkins!
