Wire Pumpkin Wreath
UPDATE: This project has been featured on HomeBNC. See it HERE.
And once again, HERE.
The Dollar Tree has really stepped it up lately when it comes to crafting and today I want to show you one way to use those wire pumpkin wreaths.
I was in the dollar store and spied this wire pumpkin. I didn't know what I was going to do with it, but I knew I'd think of something.
It all came together for me when I was looking through the sale bin at Joann's and saw this spider lace fabric for about $2 a yard. I grabbed a yard and a half.
I cut the fabric into four pieces and placed the wire frame over one of them.
I sat there for awhile and pondered how to attach the fabric to the wire frame. My first thought was hot glue, but thought it would look sloppy, so, out came the needle and thread. I started across the top by 'sewing' the thread through the fabric and around the wire.
Then I grabbed the two ends of the thread and tied them in a knot.
I repeated this multiple times across the top and bottom of the pumpkin. I was then left with the two sides where I gathered up the fabric and clipped it with a binder clip to hold it in place.While they were clipped, I tied thread around them:
The fabric was then trimmed to eliminate some of the bulk, and sewed/knotted like the rest of the pumpkin.
When it was done, this is how it looked:
Here's a better look at the sides:
Since there were spiders all over it, I felt the only thing it needed was a bow, so I grabbed some dollar store ribbon and made a bow for it.
And I called it 'Done'!
Another easy holiday project for under $10. Here's the breakdown:
Wire Frame: $1
Fabric: $1 - actually less, but I'll round 'up'
How's that for a bargain?
Here's an added thought. If you can't find the fabric, use a pair of Halloween tights that look like spider webs. You'll get the same look!
I hope you'll pin, share, comment, and follow. If you click on those 3 little lines at the top left of the blog, you'll see where to find me...or click on the icon below to share.
