Easy DIY No-Sew Yarn Pumpkins Directions:
• The pumpkins shown use 1, 2 and 3 plastic bags respectively.
• To begin, ball up one plastic bag. You’ll want to flatten the bag and roll the ends into the center to create almost like a pouch.
• Tape the plastic bag with masking tape and shape it to your liking.
• Cut a slit into the top of the bag/pumpkin for the stem. When choosing a stem, pick a thicker stick so that it doesn’t break. All of these sticks were from dead trees so they can be brittle if very dry. You also want the stick sticking out farther than you think because you’ll be wrapping it with yarn which takes up space.
• Tape around the stick so it stays in place.
• Begin to wrap your yarn.
• Wrap it around the bag and tuck it under to stay in place. Continue to wrap the yarn, about 3-5 wraps before changing directions usually creates the best result, but you can really do anything. There’s no right or wrong way, just be sure to cover the bag. When you are happy with your results, tuck the string under another string at the bottom and trim.
• You can squish the pumpkin a bit to your liking. Just be careful because it will loosen the yarn. The tighter you wrap your yarn around the bag, the smaller your pumpkin will be.
• To make the two bag pumpkin simply attach two bags with masking tape.
• This is wrapping a triple bag.
• To make the three bag pumpkin, attach three bags with masking tape as shown and use both colors of yarn and wrap the pumpkin at the same time.
• This is a super easy project! You can set up your kids (once you have trimmed the sticks) and after taped, allow them to wrap the bags, or do it yourself in no time flat!
