Wooden loom (I found mine at Michaels Craft Store)
Orange crepe paper
Orange craft paint
A sponge brush in a circle shape (I also found this at Michaels Craft Store)
Tickets (Found at a party supply store)
Double sided tape, and glue
The first step is to take the burlap and secure it in the wooden loom.
Next I added the face for my pumpkin. I chose a traditional face, but you can get as creative as you want and personalize your pumpkin's face. I cut the pieces of the face out of black felt.
I glued the felt pieces on to secure them to the burlap.
Once I finished that, I trimmed all the excess burlap from around the loom.
I thought the stem needed a little more embellishment so I added a few more pieces just for fun. I love using these old tickets I found antiquing, but you can use any tickets or ribbons you want.
Once you have made your way around the loom, then you can go around and trim the crepe paper.
And voila' you are finished!
You can hang this pumpkin on your front door, or a wall in your home. I think it would be really great to hang in from an open frame and put it on your mantel.
Thanks for stopping by, looking forward to showing you more fall projects soon!
Until next time, XO~Gretchen
