Jute wrapped pumpkins for Fall.
wrapping up all my styrofoam pumpkins and gourds with jute and twine.
Eventually these will make it to the mantel for Fall.
Here's how I made the pumpkins:
1. Gather your old styrofoam pumpkins and gourds, twine, and hot glue gun:
2. Pull out the plastic stems and discard.
3. Start wrapping the pumpkins either at the base or top using hot glue:
4. Keep wrapping and gluing, no worries about those 'hot glue strings' hanging as they only enhance the nature of the twine.
5. For the stems find a stick and slice short stems with an angled top:
6. Hot glue the stem into place with some woody curly bits:
7. I also used thinner jute on a few for contrast:
Easy project using supplies I already had on hand to update my Fall decor.
