It’s time to start crafting for Fall home decor! Let me show you how to make not one but two types of adorable twine pumpkins!

Hi friends! I’m so excited about Fall! It’s really hot outside so I’m happy to stay inside and get started making Fall crafts! The first craft of the season is these super cute twine pumpkins. I made a larger and smaller version. So ready or not, let’s start crafting! I’m going to show you how easy it is to make not one but two types of twine pumpkins!


Steps to Make a Larger Twine Pumpkin


To make a larger size twine pumpkin, you will need to use a wired jute cord, so it can keep its shape! Here are the simple steps to make this adorable pumpkin!!

GATHER

Gather the following supplies:

  • Wired Jute twine- I used 2 -7.5 foot cords from Dollar Tree
  • Scissors
  • Spray glue
  • Ruler
  • Candle – or glass to wrap the cord around



PREP


Cut a 6-inch strip and set it aside.

The twine can easily separate from the wire. To keep that from happening, secure the stray pieces to the wire with spray adhesive.

MAKE A PUMPKIN SECTION


Wrap the remaining cord around a candle or glass.

Carefully slide the twine off of the candle.

Wrap each end of the wired cord around the center to secure.

Repeat the steps using the second jute cord (do not cut a 6-inch piece this time).

Connect Pumpkin Sections


Use the 6-inch piece you cut earlier to secure the two pumpkin sections together!

EMBELLISH.


Add a stem or leaves to complete the look of your pumpkin. I used a pinecone for the stem and added a burlap leaf.

It's all done! I just love how it turned out!

Steps to Make a Smaller Twine Pumpkin


I wanted to show you how to make a version of this pumpkin without the wired jute cord (in case you can't find it at a Dollar Tree near you). It needs to be smaller, so it can keep its shape. I also made this one denser!

Gather Supplies.


Jute twine

Scissors

Paper towel cylinder

Ruler

PREP


Cut a 4-inch piece of twine.

Repeat three more times. You should have four pieces.

Cut an 8-inch piece of twine.

Set aside.

Make Pumpkin Section


Wrap the twine around the cylinder of paper towels 20 times.


Carefully slide the twine off the cylinder and keep hold of it between your thumb and finger.

Take a 4-inch section of jute and tie it around the twine to secure. Make sure to knot it tightly.

Repeat these steps three more times. You should have four sections finished now.

Connect Pumpkin Sections


Use the 8-inch strip to connect the four sections.

Tie a secure knot.

Fluff the sections to look round like a pumpkin!

EMBELLISH


Add a stem to your pumpkin. I used a tiny pinecone.
