Make a Cute Twine Pumpkin
I’m all about fall decor, and I think pumpkins are just perfect for that!
If you have about 5 minutes. You can make the basic base of this cute twine pumpkin.
In another 5-20 minutes (depending on how long you play with the leaf decor), and you can have it done.
Such a simple design and so pretty and different too!
The first thing you need is twine, rope, cording. etc…. whatever you might have, or would like to get at the store.
Go into the hardware section and you can find a lot of different kinds of ropes.
You are going to want to loop it around and around itself, just keep the loops consistent in size.
This is how much I used for my pumpkin. I would continue using as much rope as you’d like, the more rope, the fuller looking the pumpkin.
The less rope, the more more airy the pumpkin will look.
Now, gather the rope in your hand, as well as several cinnamon sticks.
I got these large ones at a store last year, not sure which, but I’ve been hoarding them for the perfect project!
I added three because I liked the look. Add more or less to your taste.
I then held the pumpkin together with several tied pieces of jute. I used three pieces just to make sure it wouldn’t come undone.
Look closely, and see that I have both the beginning and end of the rope at these points.
After I had everything nice and snug, I added some hot glue at the top and bottom of the cinnamon sticks so it held together even better and was more sturdy.
I found some velvet leaves I had. I think they are from Maya Road, but I could be wrong.
Regular leaves will work just fine.
I took my other leaves off of some dollar store stems I purchased.
I wrapped a thicker jute around the stems, just to neaten up the inside of the pumpkin there, and to tuck my leaves in place.
I hot glued them on when I added what I felt was a pleasing amount.
Then I added some jute vines around the pumpkin.
You can see the vines better in this photo.
All you have to do is find the perfect place to add this to your decor.
Fun, fast, and cute cute cute!
