how to make a dollar tree pumpkin look ecofriendly? i will tell you how.

  1. buy corns
  2. eat corn and save the husks
  3. dry the husk
  4. buy a dollar tree foam pumpkin
  5. make a beautiful timeless pumpkin decor

i went to the farmer market and bought corns since it is the season. when i removed the husks i looked at them i though why not i use them for something related with the fall deco. then remembered the pumpkins i make previously i first wanted to make braids with the husks and then glue them witch is a great idea too but then i said i will try them this way and maybe next time braid them.

air dry the husks for 2 days before you use them. it prevent the mold and the bad smell. when you peel them ty to save them as much as you can. go gently to not rip them.

let see the steps and the result.

air dry the corn husks for a day or two depending of how hot it is. buy a dollar tree pumpkin.

tips: you can shape a ball using a bunch of papers and wrap it together with the tape.

with a blade or a sharp knife, remove the head of the foam pumpkin.

put some hot glue in the hole edge and glue the husk all the way from the top to the bottom put some glue in the bottom too.

repeat this operation until you cover all the pumpkin.

i did many layers because i didn't want to see the neon orange color of the pumpkin.

using clay i shaped a pumpkin stem and paint it in brown and gold. the clay stem is in my previous project.

tips: you can use a piece of tree sticks to mimic the pumpkin stem.

glue the stem on the top of the pumpkin et voila.

tell me what you think about it

if you have any other ideas or suggestions, i will be happy to discuss it in the comments bellow.

have a great day.
