This a cute and cheap pumpkin craft especially for the autumn months. You can get a package of floral wire for 99 cents and make a pumpkin or two from one spool. Enjoy!

Total Time: 30 minutes

Yield: 2 to 4 wire pumpkins

Supplies:

  • 2 packages of 6ft 1.8m floral wire
  • wooden spoon or anything cylindrical
  • wire cutters (optional)

Steps:

  1. Remove the floral wire from the packaging, but do not discard the twist ties.
  2. Unravel the floral wire.
  3. Start wrapping the floral wire firmly around the circular handle of the wooden spoon (or whatever cylinder you're using). Keep going until you've wrapped the whole thing.
  4. Gently pull the wire off from the cylinder as not to let it lose its spring shape.
  5. If you'd like to make 2 mini pumpkins from one piece of wire, use wire cutters to snip the coil in half.
  6. Gently mold the spring so it's donut shaped, getting the two ends to meet.
  7. Pull a "stem" out from the end of one side of the wire and wrap with one of the twist ties.
  8. To make a bigger pumpkin, use a cylinder with a larger radius. I used a cardboard tube from the inside of a roll of wrapping paper.
  9. For a bigger pumpkin, use two twist ties for the stem.
  10. Enjoy your handmade sculptures!
