When your kids move away, fall and Halloween decor changes. At least it did for me. The colors are muted and pumpkins are not carved, they are made.
How to Make a Charming Pumpkin & It Doesn't Do Anything but Be Cute!
Is that big guy in the red suit is stepping into your fall decorating plans? Finish this adorable pumpkin before he makes it across your lawn.
If you love farmhouse decor and texture this pumpkin is for you.
Supplies for white pumpkin
- Craft Glue
- 6 feet of twine
- a white wool dryer ball
- one really long needle, yikes! I used a 6 inch upholstery needle
Start with a knot on top
Thread the twine on the needle. Make a simple knot in one end of the twine. Push the needle through the middle of the dryer ball. Pull the twine down tight. This makes a dent in the top of the ball. Like a pumpkin.
Start forming the ribs of the pumpkin
Next, do the same. Start next to the knot on top and push the needle through.
Making a rib
Pull the twine down tight and make the indent of a rib on the pumpkin.
Continue making ribs
Continue poking in the top and pulling tight from the bottom of the pumpkin about 6 or 7 times.
The last poke of the needle
Each time you poke through the bottom of the pumpkin with the needle, the point comes out in different areas. When the last rib is made, poke back through the bottom to the top. This keeps the bottom of the pumpkin neat and without knots.
Then make a knot on top. Leave about 6 inches of twine coming from the top knot.
Making the twine stem cinnamon roll style
Start making a curl in the twine on top like a cinnamon roll. Add craft glue and keep curling and adding glue until it looks like a stem.
Decorate with your little white pumpkin
Let the glue dry and display until the tree appears.
