Pumpkin Made From Dryer Vent Hose and Fabric- Tutorial

So, I was so inspired by one of the Hometalkers. I know that many people have done these kinds of pumpkins, but I really wanted to make one and add something extra. I sew and I have many leftover fabric scraps. Therefore, I decided to use some of it for this project. It was a little bit messy with the glue, but I think it turned out pretty cool. :) Hope you like it! :)

      It is a wire. Those leaves had a wire stem so you just wrap it around a pencil

    Hmmm that was last year when I did it but I remember I used one strip to measure so it will go all the way down and then cut the rest using the measurement of the first one
