Cute Yarn Pumpkins
I've recently slowly been getting out my fall decor for the season. Naturally as the years go by my style has slowly changed. I was going to donate some old foam pumpkins I purchased from the Dollar Store that aren't my style anymore, but thought I'd just make them my style! I grabbed some yarn I had on hand and purchased some new yarn I got from the Dollar Store and got to work!
Materials Needed -
- Foam Pumpkins (Dollar Store, Target, Walmart)
- Yarn (Dollar Store, Hobby Lobby, Walmart)
- Sticks or Cinnamon sticks
Step One - Remove Stem from pumpkin
Step Two - Deconstruct pumpkin
The pumpkins I had on hand had fabric around them.
Step Three - Make hole in center
To allow space for the yarn, I used my scissors to carve a good size hole in the center of the pumpkin.
Step Four - String Yarn through hole
Step Five - Tie yarn
Step Six - String yarn through hole
This step took the longest. I did 3-4 long strands per pumpkin, repeating steps 4-6 to get the finished look. I just used my finger and balled up the yarn to string it through the hole.
Don't be discouraged if it's not looking like it'll come together, with a little time and effort it will look as cute as can be! I put on a good show on Netflix and got to stringing.
After you have completely strung the yarn around the pumpkin, push a stick or a cinnamon stick in the hole and you're done!
Here's the final product and I am seriously in love with how they turned out. I think they're my favorite pumpkins I have in my fall decor!
