String Pumpkin Directions

Step 1

Blow up and tie the balloon.

Step 2

Put starch into a bowl. Carefully unwind the entire piece of embroidery floss into the bowl. If you don’t unwind it, while you are putting it in the starch, it will get tangled.

Step 3

Start winding the embroidery floss around the balloon, being careful to leave the tied end of the balloon out.

Step 4

When you have finished with the orange floss, take a piece of brown floss and wind it around the tied piece of the balloon. It will make the stem.

Step 5

Put the string pumpkin on a cup or something to dry overnight. I cut water bottles and put string pumpkins on there.

Step 6

When dry, take a toothpick and pop the balloon. Carefully remove the balloon. The brown stem will likely come off the orange. Don’t be alarmed!

Step 7

Take a piece of green ribbon and tie a knot. Feed it through the brown stem piece and add a dab of glue to secure it. Allow the glue to dry.

Have fun with it! I’d LOVE to see what you make! Be sure to share it over on my Craft Klatch Facebook Group! It’s Free! ❤️

Thanks for stopping by!  Remember: Life’s too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™ Stay safe!

  1. I made some of those, but made them more dense, then wrapped them onto an LED light string. I used a controller to cycle through a combo of yellow and red lights which created an orange appearance when they cycled.
    …search the web for "motorcycle lights" and you'll find several companies that sell the lights and controllers (mine are "lizard lights")
