Do you have a few minutes to craft? I am sharing a tutorial for 5 Minute Twine Pumpkins to Create for Fall with a few simple supplies from the Dollar Tree. Transform a spool of twine, some floral wire, and hot glue into a pair of quirky pumpkins sure to fit in any Autumn home décor.
5 Minute Twine Pumpkins
To begin the 5 Minute Twine Pumpkins, gather all supplies. For each pumpkin, measure and cut six lengths of floral wire that are six inches long each and trim with wire cutters.
Wrap natural jute twine around the palm of your hand twelve times. Thread one of the six-inch pieces of floral wire through the twine bundle and twist the ends to secure. Repeat five more times to create six bundles in total.
Gather three bundles of twine together and twist to secure. Repeat with the next three bundles and then trim the excess floral wire with wire cutters.
Apply hot glue to the wired center of one bundle and press bundles firmly together. Once the glue has dried, fan out the loops of natural jute twine of each bundle to create the body of the pumpkin.
Collect a small tree branch from the yard and cut it into one-inch long pieces with the wire cutters. Secure a tree branch stem and a silk leaf in the center of each twine pumpkin with a glue gun and glue sticks. Accent with a bow tied with lace, orange gingham, or black buffalo check ribbon.
Get the kiddos involved and create a fun family craft time. These 5 Minute Twine Pumpkins are a great activity to teach measuring, cutting, and counting.
