Love, love FALL Decor! So get ready because I have so much planned out to share with you. Today, I’m going to show you how I created this cute little rustic pumpkin embroidery hoop using some burlap rope, ribbon and raffia. It’s so unbelievably easy and it definitely won’t break the bank! I feel that some rustic bow will for sure decorate this pumpkin at some point. Shall we put embroidery hoops to work to make this pumpkin?
Things you need to make a pumpkin
So let’s begin to make our cute fall pumpkin
First we need to separate our embroidery hoop and cut our burlap
Just because we are dealing with one embroidery hoop, some hot gluing is necessary.
Burlap is super popular but in their natural color. I have been seeing it everywhere, but not in orange. Solution to that is very easy. Let’s paint it a bit to be close to color of pumpkin.
It doesn’t take much of a paint just a drop that I mixed with a lot of water
So let’s fold them together and add additional loop to mirror left side. Decided to simply glue 3 pieces of rope together
Garden wire helped me easily secure them together. Secure together top and the bottom of both loops
As I was adding my matching line of 3 ropes glued together I came out with another idea …lets loop it all up. That is what usually happens with me when creating juices start to flow. To keep my loops loose and light I only pinched them with bit of glue to my painted burlap.
It’s time to add some top to our pumpkin! I used piece of wood that I had left over from my pallet project but you can add twig or piece of branch
all what I did was a dot of hot glue reinforced with wire
I think we are done! It is time to add a bow!
