- Aluminum Flexible Dryer Vent (I used 6 inches around and 25 feet long, cut to make multiple pumpkins)
- Wire cutters
- Hot glue gun
- Small stick, cinnamon stick or narrow cardboard tubes one per pumpkin
- Spanish moss, faux leaves and flowers, Fall ribbon
Stretch out dryer vent to measure the length you will need, make sure it is not too short/tight or the glue will not hold. Use scissors to cut the aluminum vent and when you get to the wire, use the wire cutters to clip it. Trim excess aluminum, if needed.
hot glue to one end of the hose,
section at a time to avoid the glue drying too quick, pull
the hose into a circle and press the two ends together for
30-45 seconds or until glue cools.
this step until you have glue around the entire ends. If you are able
to work quickly, you can put a thick layer of glue around the entire
end and quickly place the ends together until cool. CAUTION
GLUE IS HOT AND WILL BURN IF CONTACT WITH SKIN OCCURS
Place a 6-inch stick in the center of the pumpkin. The stick should fit snugly in the center, but if it feels loose, place a dab of hot glue in the center of the pumpkin before adding the stick. Then use the hot glue to decorate your pumpkin with leaves, moss, flowers and/or ribbon.
Enjoy your beautiful Fall centerpiece.
