Yield: 1 Pumpkin


  • 1 Dollar Tree styrofoam pumkin
  • 1 Dollar Tree microfiber mop head
  • 1 Glue gun
  • 1 Stick from the yard
  • 1 Spray Paint with a color to match your mop head optional
  • 1 Greenery optional


  • Remove the stem from your pumpkin and create a small hole in it's place.
  • Spray paint your pumpkin to better blend with your mop head strands
  • Remove the mop strands from the attachment by cutting them with scissors
  • Tuck each mop strand into the top of the pumkin wrapping around the circumference of the pumpkin and securing with your hot glue where needed.
  • Repeat the process until the entire surface is covered.
  • Insert your stick from the yard and use it to tuck any loose strands into the center.
  • Add greenery around stem as desired. I grabbed a spare piece of wired boxwood and twisted it around my stick.
