Make a nylon pumpkin using old pantyhose or footies. This can be a great project for fall.
Total Time: 2 hours (including drying time) Yield: 1 Supplies: 12x12 in square of nylon for size of pumpkin 24 + inches embroidery floss (orange) handful stuffing/fluff/cotton 2 scraps of fabric for the leaves 1 stem (I used a dry stem from a red pepper, but you could use a branch.) 1 orange paint (acrylic) and a paintbrush 1 hot glue gun Related Products: Steps: Fill nylon sock with fluff. Tie thread around the place where the stem will be. Continue wrapping with thread to separate into segments; keep pulling tight to make segments. Tie at the top to keep all the thread in place. Paint the whole outside - let dry for about 1 and 1/2 hours. Cut fabric into leaf shapes. Hot glue stem and leaves in place.
Old or new nude colored nylons make great pumpkin decor. Use cotton to form a round ball. Tie at the end. Use orange acrylic paint to paint the nylon. When dry, place orange embroidery thread to make segments where you want. Hot glue a stick to hide tied and thread ends. Curl a green pipe cleaner around stick. Glue on a fake leaf and you have a wonderful decoration.
