What do pumpkins and dryer vent duct have in common? The perfect mix for a lovely fall craft! Not only does this project make me happy because it is repurposing something but it was also very easy, cheap and fast. I saw a blog post of this fall craft that inspired me to try it.
We had some of this hose in our garage already because we had a laundry mishap this past year. At the time I felt pretty sorry for myself but now I am glad it happened as it allowed me to create something!
I had to cut the hose to the size I wanted the pumpkins to be. This was no easy task – I had to get the wire cutters out. After that I added some hot glue and they were already taking shape.
I did have to purchase some orange Rustoleum spray paint. Of course, I bought the cheapest one and it worked out just fine meaning this project only cost me $7.00! I sprayed them throughout the day in the garage. I discovered a love for spray painting; it is so easy.
I took this picture because I thought it was funny. I opened the garage to let it air out in the morning and the sun was shining right where I had them!
Moving on. Once they were dry, I hot glued a stick, some hay from my backyard (yard work is not one of my strengths) and some interesting pieces of potpourri.
I am really happy with how they turned out! They look really cute with Mr. Owl.
