A Pumpkin With a Weave.

Yes. I am serious.

My pumpkin has a weave.

A ribbon weave.

And yours can too!

Just follow this easy DIY tutorial and give your pumpkin a little ribbon weave! (It looks kind of difficult…don’t be fooled! Its not!)

Step 1:

Start with an unfinished wood pumpkin. These can be found at JoAnns, Michaels, Hobby Lobby or online at Crafts, etc.

1

Step 2:

Pick out no less than three ribbons.

They can be different sizes and textures.

There is nothing wrong with a little Mix and Match…

2

Step 3:

Fire up the glue gun!

Glue ribbon around the edges of the pumpkin as shown below with the orange and white polka dot ribbon… to give it a nice smooth edge.

Cut ribbons a little longer than the width of the pumpkin.

Dab a bit of hot glue on the left side only.

3

Arrange ribbons vertically down the pumpkin by gluing just the left hand side. This will allow us to weave later.

Step 4:

Cut ribbons a little longer than the pumpkin length wise.

Begin weaving, over then under, and dabbing with hot glue with each weave.

6

Step 5:

Continue to keep weaving over and under, making your way across the pumpkin, securing the ribbon in place with hot glue.

7

Step 6.

Pull excess ribbon tight and hot glue to the back of the pumpkin.

Wrap a single ribbon around the stem, securing with hot glue.

Your pumpkin will thank you for it’s terrific new ribbon weave!

Add it to a collection of pumpkins, sit it on a shelf… put it on a yard stake or hang it with ribbon… there is so many things you can do with a pumpkin with a weave!

Happy Fall Y’all,

    Another cute craft I see! I still want to make the Topiary Rag Trees so bad, but haven’t had the time. Guess I’ll have to make this one now too! Maybe I’ll just have to plan a “craft weekend” and do them both :)
    Melissa, you have the best, neatest ideas!!
