Pumpkins are the epitome of the fall season, and they should not be left out of your fall décor. We know that real pumpkins can get a little messy, so we recommend creating pumpkins from things that sometimes get discarded. How about a pumpkin made from re-purposed corks. This is a delightful, conversation starter piece, which you will definitely be proud of.

Items needed:

  1. 25 recycled wine corks
  2. Orange acrylic paint
  3. Paint brush
  4. Hot glue gun
  5. Green felt
  6. Jute twine

Instructions:

  1.  Paint both ends of all corks, but one
  2. Then once they have dried, arrange the corks in four rows, 4 on the bottom, 5 in the middle, then 6, then 5, lastly 4 on the top row
  3. Hot glue the corks together in the order arranged in
  4.  Take your last remaining cork and trim it down, then place on top as the stem.
  5. Cut out a leaf shape from the green felt and hot glue around the stem
  6.  Lastly, tie a short length of twine around the stem to resemble the vine of the pumpkin.

This is an easy no mess and slime pumpkin design that you can enjoy for the years to come!
