Dryer Vent Hose DIY Pumpkin

2 Materials
2 Hours

Dryer vent hoses are inexpensive and can be easily found at the hardware store.

But did you know they make amazing Fall decor?
How cute are these pumpkins? They can be painted any color in the rainbow! Add moss, cork, wire, and leaves for a fun and festive Fall pumpkin.
First I began with a length of dryer vent hose leftover from my washer and dryer installation.

I shaped the hose into a circle then hot glued the ends. I held it for a few seconds to let the glue set.
I spray painted this one with a glossy orange spray paint. I added sphagnum moss to the center then cut a cork in half and glued it on top for the stem.

Next I twisted a piece of coated wire around the end of a dowel to create a wire tendril then glued it in place next to the cork.
These adorable pumpkins can be made any color.

This one is painted matte grey then I added a piece of pip berry and a faux fall leaf using hot glue.

These little pumpkins couldn't be cuter! 🎃
