{DiY} Pipecleaner Pumpkins

I'm sooooo excited to show you what i made today!!....I have been seeing these "wire pumpkins" floating around blogland and on link partys....I was not even gonna attempt workin with wire...soooo I come up with a quicker...cheaper...easier way to make pumpkins and they look sooo much like the wire one.
Let me show you how I did it!...

  • 1 bag of orange pipecleaners
  • green and orange felt
  • cardboard
  • hot glue gun
  • brown ribbon

OK first thing I did was take 2 pipecleaners and twist them together @ the top and bottom
    Make 4 of these
    Cut out 2 circles of orange felt * you will use these circles to attach the top and bottom of your pipecleaners
    Start hot gluing your pipecleaners to the felt
    It will look some what like this
    Continue this process on all four "sets" of pipcleaners
    Now...cut out leaves on the green felt
    Also cut out a little piece of cardboard and a piece of ribbon ** this is going to be for the stem
    Cover cardboard with ribbon using hot glue
    Now once you have attached the stem and leaves your basically done.
    I fanned out my pipcleaners and gave them a boost* so they don't look flat!
    I made 2 big pumpkins and a baby pumpkin ** all you do for the baby pumpkin is fold 1 pipecleaner in half and cut ..and repeat the step above**
    This is still the big pumpkin
    baby pumpkin....its so darn cute!
    Two big and one baby!
    ME with my pumpkins...I just {Love} them!
    Thanks I hope you ENJOY!!
