Equipment

  • scissors
  • hot glue gun
  • large needle
  • chalk type paint
  • paintbrush
  • floral wire

Materials

  • 3 splatter screens
  • 1 beanie
  • 4 pieces scrap fabric
  • 24 pieces wooden beads
  • 1 foot hemp twine
  • 6 inches regular twine
  • 1 piece rhinestone bling or brooch

Instructions

  • Glue the burlap piece onto two of the splatter screens in opposing directions.
  • Trim the burlap around the edge of the screen.
  • Bend the handles down on the two screens to be used for standing up your pumpkin and for support.
  • Attach the two screens together using the floral wire. Keep in mind, you need them to be apart enough to make the sides of the pumpkin look correct.
  • Cut up your scraps of desired fabric into circles each one bigger than the next.
  • Take the circles and connect them by using the hemp twine and a large needle to sew them together from the center.  Fold and pinch as you go to make a ‘rosette’ effect.
  • Flip over the circles and sew them from the center on the back to create a ‘cinched’ effect.
  • Flip back over and add your rhinestone bling brooch/piece by either pinning it or gluing it down to the center.
  • Take your beanie and use it to cover your final splatter screen.
  • Attach the final screen to other two screens as the center of the pumpkin using the floral wire.
  • Cinch the top of the beanie and tie off with a piece of twine.
  • Hot glue the ‘rosette’ you created to the center of the beanie.
  • Take the wooden beads and string them onto the hemp twine to desired length for the edge of the screen. (this step is optional)
  • Tie them off with another piece of twine.
  • Hot glue your wooden bead strand down to the edge of the splatter screen and paint them your desired color once they’re in place.  I found this method to be the easiest.   If preferred you can always paint them first before stringing them.
  • Take more twine and wrap around the handle ‘stem’ of your pumpkin, gluing down as you go.
