These easy, rustic twine pumpkins are a quick, inexpensive way to add some rustic decor to your farmhouse this fall.
It got cold. Quick. It was 90 just two days ago. It’s 50 out and windy today. Which means that fall is finally here. To stay, I hope. And with it all the fun projects to make and goodies to bake while I’m at it.
I really love our little crocheted pumpkins for a few cute pumpkin displays in our fall decor. But, they take time, and yarn isn’t cheap. I miss when yarn was on sale for dirt cheap and you could make all the things.
Then, I discovered these super easy DIY twine pumpkins and I was set. I made mine more simple as they only use twine and sticks. They cost pretty much nothing to make. You can find twine at the dollar store or even Target (I got mine at Target) for dirt cheap. Sticks… well, those are in the yard.
I love how they turned out. They took less than 5 minutes to make and the girls helped me. These are definitely easy enough for a kid to do. And you could get different colored twine or buy some spray paint and make them all different colors if you want.
I prefer neutral decor. I love the bright whites and light grey colors that the farmhouse style affords. So, I decided to keep these completely natural. I think they go great on the coffee table with our pretty fall vase.
Since they’re so inexpensive and quick to make, you could throw these just about anywhere to add a little bit of rustic fall decor to your home. I’m thinking the bathroom shelf, the kitchen counter, on top of night stands or dressers. You name it. Just a touch of fall to add a little bit of pretty to your home. Love it.
I can’t wait to show you my next project, either. Another super easy one. I’m making lamps for our nightstands in our bedroom. Because we are finally redoing it. It was pepto pink when we moved in and our mattress was on the floor. Now? Now it will have a beautiful handmade bed, handmade night stands, and cute little lamps to go on it. I can’t wait to reveal it to you!
But, for now, I will leave you with this super easy project! Let’s get started!
- Round Object (to roll twine around)
- Gather up your ball of twine and a round object to wrap the twine around. I used a spice bottle and a pint canning jar to make mine.
- Begin wrapping the twine around the bottle. It should be tight. I did 16 times around for each of my pumpkins.
- Cut the twine off. Take another small piece of twine and tie the circles together to make one big loop of 16 like-sized circles.
- Repeat 4-6 times. It really depends on how full your want your pumpkin to be. I did 4 sections for each of these.
- Tie all of your sections together using another piece of twine. Tie it only once and loose enough that you can stick your stick through the center of them.
- Once you place the stick through the middle (should have two sections on either side of the stick) tighten the twine you tied them together with and knot it.
- Shape the pumpkin accordingly to fill it out. That's it!
