Wire Pumpkin Wreath
The Dollar Tree has really stepped it up lately when it comes to crafting and today I want to show you one way to use those wire pumpkin wreaths. I was in the dollar store and spied this wire pumpkin. I didn't know what I was going to do with it, but I knew I'd think of something
It all came together for me when I was looking through the sale bin at Joann's and saw this spider lace fabric for about $2 a yard. I grabbed a yard and a half.
I cut the fabric into four pieces and placed the wire frame over one of them.
Attaching the Fabric
I sat there for awhile and pondered how to attach the fabric to the wire frame. My first thought was hot glue, but thought it would look sloppy, so, out came the needle and thread. I started across the top by 'sewing' the thread through the fabric and around the wire.
Then I grabbed the two ends of the thread and tied them in a knot. I repeated this multiple times across the top and bottom of the pumpkin. I was then left with the two sides where I gathered up the fabric and clipped it with a binder clip to hold it in place.
While they were clipped, I tied thread around them:
The fabric was then trimmed to eliminate some of the bulk, and sewed/knotted like the rest of the pumpkin.
When it was done, this is how it looked
Since there were spiders all over it, I felt the only thing it needed was a bow, so I grabbed some dollar store ribbon and made a bow for it.
