Note: If you are going to use the velvety smooth knit, you need three and a half yards.


Step 1:

Take a pool noodle and cut it into 1 1/2″ links. You will get 31 pumpkins out of one pool.

Step 2:

Take the chunky knit in white and cut a length of 2 1/2 yards. Run one end through the middle and hold it with one hand. Using your other hand, insert the other end of the hair braiding tool, then insert it in the middle to loop the knit. Repeat the process until it is completely filled. As you do this, make sure it’s not going through any other yarn. Keep your tension the same all the way around. Use every bit of the 2 1/2 yards of knit. Push the end to the very center of the pumpkin, cut the bottom tail off, and glue it down. Do the same for the top.

Step 3:

Glue the twig to the top and twist it to the middle.

Step 4:

Take two long pieces of jute and tie a ribbon around the front. Tie it in a bow. Lastly, glue the leaf on the top.
