NO-SEW Pumpkins

 
 
 
 
 
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.
 
Pull tight.
 
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
 
 
 Keep going!
 
 
 
Keep going!
 
 
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
 
 
 
All finished! 
 

 
 
 
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!
