We seem to be using a Dollar Tree tin cookie sheet for a lot of our DIY’s. Fall is right around the corner and I have been trying to come up with a variety of pumpkins to make. A few of our followers here at The Shabby Tree have been creating some cute looped pumpkins. I just love how they look and wanted to give it a try.
The supplies you will need are:
1. Dollar Tree tin cookie sheet sheet
2. Orange paint
3. Green paint
5. Hot glue
6. Spanish moss
7. Wine cork
I first painted a few cookie sheets orange. I am using an orange spray paint. You will want to paint both sides of the cookie sheets.
I then painted a cookie sheet with green paint. You will also want to paint both sides.
I cut the outer edge of the sheets off. This will leave you with a flat tin sheet.
I then cut 4 strips out of the cookie sheet. You can make these strips as wide or as thin as you want.
You will then wrap one of the strips glueing the ends together.
You will then wrap your second strip. You will go around in a circle forming the shape of your pumpkin.
Once your pumpkin is formed you will then want to glue on your stem. I am using a wine cork for the stem of my pumpkin. I cut the wine cork to be a bit shorter. I then added glued it to the top of the pumpkin with hot glue.
You will now need to cut out your leaves for the pumpkin.
I just used hot glue to attached them to the top of the pumpkin.
The last step is to add a little Spanish moss to the top.
These are so easy to make and can be created in a variety of colors. They would look great in a dough bowl or hanging on your fall tree!
