This is the most elegant pumpkin I have made so far this year but I am not done with them yet ….so who knows what is going to be next. Let’s make today loopy yarn pumpkin.
Things you need for this project
Let’s begin! First we need to make sure that pumpkin will have sturdy base. To do that we need to cut just a bit at the bottom of Styrofoam ball just like it shows in the picture below
Place a tiny dot of a hot glue closer to the cut edge of ball and start to wrap your yarn around it. You don’t need to use a lot of hot glue … just every other row. Twirl in the picture below used only 3 dots of hot glue . Loop as many or as little times as you like. I like them different sizes. Some are very small, some are really big.
As you can see here,I started with second loop not far from when I am done with last one. I love when my loops overlap each other. Love what I am seeing …my yarn pumpkin is really looking awesome!
There is no rule of how many loops you should do. I am simply wrapping till I touch another circle . Some loops are bigger then others .I like to overlap my loops so there is more dimension, more interest.
There are so many ways you can go about stem for this pumpkin. I simply went outside and picked the smoothes twig out them all. Satin ribbon really looks awesome on my pumpkin.
LOVED IT SO MUCH SO I MADE ONE IN WHITE. If you subscribed to my blog already you know me that I like things in pairs.
and of course in orange! Love that sophisticated way my pumpkin looks now! I have them also in different sizes available at my Etsy store
