Supplies you’ll need to make your own jute pumpkins:
DIY Jute Pumpkins
The pumpkins made from jute rope will require 4 ply jute twine and zip ties.
Begin by wrapping the jute around your hand 10 times.
Then, secure the bundle with a zip tie.
I made 6 bundles for each pumpkin.
Next, tie 3 bundles together into larger bundles as seen below. You should now have two larger bundles of twine.
Now, secure each bundle to the stem (stick) using zip ties.
You can see below how I secured the bundles to the stem in two places.
Once both bundles are on your stem, fluff the twine to create the shape of the pumpkin. You’ll also want to wrap some extra twine around the middle section of the pumpkin to hide the zip ties.
Finalize your pumpkin by adding a sprig of greenery!
DIY Grapevine Wreath Pumpkins
For the grapevine pumpkins I used 4 inch miniature grapevine wreaths, zip ties and a stick for the stem.
To begin, use a zip tie to secure the first grapevine wreath around the lower portion of the stick.
To make sure my pumpkin was even, I lined up two of the wreaths next to each other as shown below.
Then, I continued adding the wreaths using the first two as my guide. I added six wreaths total.
Once all of the wreaths are in place, wrap twine around the center of the pumpkin to cover the zip ties.
These pumpkins are so easy and super fun to make!!
Finish this pumpkin off with a greenery sprig too!
Here’s another quick angle so you can see how the wreaths line up.
How many of these pumpkins will you be making this season?
