My materials were supplied by Consumer Crafts but all projects and opinions are my own.
Keep wrapping and wrapping and wrapping. Be sure to put your twine tight as you wrap so you don’t get any gaps. Using lots of Mod Podge worked best because the surface is bumpy and can be hard to work the twine around. Push your twine down next to the row before it as you work your way up.
On the smaller pumpkins, I actually left the stem alone. The end of the twine can be tucked under the stem on this end. I really liked the natural appearance of the stem on these.
The larger pumpkin got a green baker’s twine stem as well as the orange on the body. The larger pumpkins especially take a while. Pop in a movie before you start on this project.
Within the span of a movie, I had a large pumpkin and five smaller ones. Enough to add to this display and make a very cute baker’s twine touch to my fall decor. I think it was well worth it, don’t you?
Intimidated? Don’t be! Start with a small mini pumpkin and some Mod Podge. Wrap the small ones until you get the hang of it. Then you can dive head first into a large pumpkin. One large roll of baker’s twine will easily do a large pumpkin so don’t worry about running out.
The rest of the items on my fall display include:
Add these to your home for fall and to impress your Thanksgiving guests. They will be amazed at your little creations!
