Hi everyone! I'm Amanda from The Hand Me Down House. :)
I'm SO excited to be guest posting on one of my absolute FAVORITE blogs today! Thank you, Michelle, for allowing me the honor! :)
I'm SUCH a sucker for fall decor -- I absolutely love it! So today, I want to show you two variations of pumpkins I created for our entry table.
PUMPKIN ONE: WIRE PUMPKIN
Materials: Brown floral wire (yup! that's it!)
I went through and did this to every strand (around 35 - 40 wires).
Next I stacked them together and took a piece of wire to bind them all together. It should look like this:
Finally, fan out the circle wires and add a stem to the top. It should look like this in the end:
PUMPKIN TWO: ROPE PUMPKIN
Materials: 3" - 4" diameter poster tube (or any other kind of cardboard tube)
3/4" Boat Rope (or twisted multipurpose rope)
First, I cut my cardboard tube to be about 4" tall.
Next, I took my rope and started wrapping it vertically around and through the tube.
I continued doing this until the inside of the tube was completely filled with the rope.
Finally, I added a stem to the top by using the end of the rope.
What do you think??? Quick and Easy -- but still so cute! :)
