Let’s Get Crafting

The first thing you want to do is remove the dryer duct from box, and cut it down to size for each pumpkin.


I recommend 24-25″ this will give you enough length to create a pumpkin.


You can use regular scissors and you will need wire cutters to get through the metal wire.

I was able to get 3 pumpkins out of the 8 ft. duct.


Glue the Seams

Now it is time to hot glue the ends. Make sure you put a good amount of glue on each end of the duct.


Be careful not to burn yourself, I learned the hard way.

Hold the ends together, and go back and add glue to seams where needed.


Time to Spray Paint

Be sure to go to a well ventilated space before spraying your pumpkin.

I sprayed two coats on the top of the pumpkin, one on the bottom.


Decorating the Pumpkins

You can use moss or dried flowers for this part of the DIY.


I decided to go with the florals because I just wanted a little more texture.

We happen to have three different kinds of florals on hand for another upcoming DIY, so I just used one for each pumpkin.

You can place the stem first then build the florals around it, or vice-versa.

Just use hot glue to secure stem, then glue as needed to the florals or moss.
