I recently stumbled upon the idea of using a dryer vent to make into a pumpkin from A Diamond in the Stuff. I thought it was so cute and easy that I had to try it. I only spent $7.00 to create the two pumpkins. I had the paint for them already, so I just had to buy the vent, rafia, moss, and cinnamon sticks.
Here is how I put them together:
First, I opened up the vent and cut it to the prefered length. I then bent the ends together and connected them with wire.
I used cinnamon sticks for the stem. One of my pumpkins had a larger center and I needed to glue some sticks together.
Place in the center and glue in place.
Glue spanish moss around the stem for some added texture and earthiness.
I tied a rafia bow around the orange pumpkin.
Here they are in my entryway.
stay tuned for a post on this dresser that i bought and redid for $15!!!!
Here are the pumpkins on my dining table.
WOW! That’s a lot of pics… bored yet? Or, are you going to go make one for yourself???
