First, decide if you want a small, medium, or large-sized chinky knit pumpkin. This pumpkin measured 9 inches wide by 9 inches tall and I used about 1/2 of the yarn.
1 Pumpkin -I would stay away from foam as the hot glue could melt it.
Chunky Knit Yarn – I used Yarn Bee Internal Bliss in ivory (found at Hobby Lobby)
Hot Glue and Glue Gun
Measure the length from the stem of the pumpkin to the bottom of the pumpkin and cut your yarn accordingly. I pre-cut a few strips at a time.
Run a bead of glue from top to bottom down one rib at a time adhering the yarn to the glue. I left the ends dangling.
Continue doing this until all ribs are filled with the yarn
Next start filling in the areas between each rib. You will notice as the pumpkin starts filling in more you will need to add shorter strips to fill the gaps, don’t worry, they blend perfectly.
Last, cut the pieces of yarn that are dangling on the bottom and glue them to your pumpkin.
That’s it, so simple! I love how cozy these yarn pumpkins are for fall, the texture is so soft, it’s hard not to touch it every time I walk by.
The color possibilities are endless and they make the best little fall gifts for friends and family.
Next week I’ll be sharing the tutorial on how to make this beautiful dough bowl candle with the most amazing scents for fall!
