Here is my version of a NO-SEW Pumpkin.
I like to recycle long sleeve shirts and pants.
First cut off the sleeves at the shoulders, then remove the cuff portion.
Cut the legs off at zipper and save. We won't need the seat of the pants or
the body portion of shirt. You can discard or put aside for another project.
Cut into lengths between 6'' to 12 ''
The sleeves and the pant legs are tube shaped, turn inside out.
You will need some Jute and a Hot Glue Gun
Gather by hand and tie off with a short piece of Jute.
Note: I would not use a rubber band because over time a band will
wear out and break
Turn right sides out.
This is the bottom of your PUMPKIN
Stuff with Polyester Fiberfil
This is the underside
Tie off top, leaving a tail for optional tendril.
If you don't want the tendril just cover with Jute.
Do not cut off the roll of Jute, you will be wrapping the pumpkin stem.
Tightly wrap, bottom to top
Once you see the end is in site, cut the Jute and glue in to place.
I had some silk type leaves from Dollar Tree
Use a little Hot Glue to add leaves.
I used some MOD PODGE on the Jute and twisted it around a pencil
or whatever you have. I used a crochet hook
Pull off and reshape
You can make these so fast !
I was able to make 12 in about 2 hours .
I originally wanted to make the pumpkins to fill my empty crate that was made with
leftover pallet wood scraps. In case you want to know the crate is 18 1/2'' L x 7'' D x 5'' H.
I used this stencil from Cathe Holden
I left the wood natural and used Burnt Umber paint on the stencil
Let me know if you think these are the easiest and the fastest pumpkins you ever made.
Thanks again for stopping by!
