DIY Dollar Tree Pumpkin Craft
- hot glue gun and glue sticks
- orange yarn I used less than one bundle from Dollar Tree
- 1 wood pumpkin
- 1 piece wired rope
- 1 metal sign
- 2 maple leaves
- Starting in the middle of one side, wrap the yarn around the wood pumpkin toward the outer end. As you get closer to the narrowing side of the pumpkin, you will need to hot glue the yarn down to keep it sliding out of place. Cover any gaps with some hot glue in between the pieces, if necessary.
- Repeat step 1 for the other side of the pumpkin until the pumpkin is completely covered in yarn.
- Wrap the wired rope around the stem and glue it into place.
- Add the metal sign to the middle of the pumpkin, gluing the each side and the middle so it is securely in place.
- Add a maple leaf behind the stem on either side.
