See the top below. Make the ribbon fit into each section. Use hot glue at the top and the bottom as well to secure.
When you are done with the burlap ribbon your pumpkin will be looking a little like the below. WOW! What a hot mess!
Never fear! Jute twine is here! Use hot glue and just twine wrapped in circles to cover up around your stem area. Looking better already!
I then grabbed some brown and white buttons to make a stem. The stem on these little pumpkins is just not substantial enough for me and most of it was covered by the burlap. I just stacked up the buttons on top (alternating colors) and used hot glue to secure.
You are left with a burlap pumpkin that is still slightly orange (but not the day glow effect of the original). Plus you can do all of this in just a few minutes. I call that a win win.
Portions of the supplies for this tutorial were supplied to me by the companies linked. However, all opinions and projects are my own.
