Instructions for DIY Dollar Store Fall Pumpkin:

  1. Remove the green stem on your carvable pumpkin
  2. Using your craft knife, carve a quarter size hole (about a 1″ diameter) where the stem was.
  3. Measure how much ribbon you need to go from the stem of the pumpkin to the bottom and cut equal strips of ribbon.
    I used 9 strips and each strip was about 8 inches long so I used a little more than half of a roll of ribbon to make this pumpkin.
  4. Glue the end of a strip of ribbon to the bottom center of the pumpkin and tuck the top part of the ribbon into the hole. Repeat for remaining strips.
  5. Push your stick into the top of the pumpkin. If it is around 1″ in diameter, it should fit perfectly in your pumpkin without having to glue it in place.
  6. Glue two maple leaves to the sides of the stem

…now you have a beautiful fall decor piece to use on a tiered tray, as a home accent or a centerpiece.

Happy Fall Everyone!
