    • Crafter's Closet Hot Glue Sticks

    Let's Do This!



    Step 1:

    1. Cut a large square out of your tablecloth. Our recommended size is no smaller then twelve inches.
    2. Fold the square into quarters and cut in a curve from one corner to the opposite. Be sure to keep the folded edges in tack.
    3. Open up the fabric to reveal a circle!


    Step 2:

    1. Turn your fabric upside down.
    2. Begin to loosely stitch around the edge of the entire circle with the needle and thread.
    3. Fill the inside with loose poly-fil.
    4. Pull the thread tight and close up the center of the pumpkin. Tie a knot at the base of the thread to keep the stitches together.


    Step 3:

    1. Grab a small branch or twig from outside and hot glue into the center of the pumpkin.
    2. Using the Jute, tie a knot around the bottom of the stem and hot glue the loose edge down.
    3. Begin to wrap the jute around the fabric and create the natural sections that a pumpkin forms.
    4. Hot glue the end of the twine to the bottom of the stem.


    Step 4:

    1. Twist the Jute and Beading Wire together.
    2. Add to the stem but tying a knot, a little off center.
    3. Wrap the Wired Jute around a pen or pencil. Remove the pen to reveal a coiled decoration!
    4. Spread out the coils and place how you would like.


    Step 5:

    1. Hot Glue a leaf to the base of the stem and put on display!
