Make a DIY Pumpkin Garland!!

Hello Friends I want to share my pumpkin garland!

This is Desirée from The 36th AVENUE.


As always I am honored to be here visiting with our beautiful Jen and you wonderful people.

Summer days are almost officially behind us and Fall is literally around the corner.





Screw Driver.

Bobby Pin.

Acrylic Black Paint and brush.

Small Pumpkins.

{I found these little ones at my local Wal-Mart and the box came with 10 small pumpkins.

Perfect amount for this project. }



The first thing you want to do is paint the stems of the pumpkins.

If you want to change the ribbon and use the same pumpkins for Thanksgiving then don’t even worry about painting them.


You can even get creative.

Add polka dots, stripes… Have fun with it.


After they dry you are ready to make the holes in each pumpkin.

Because these are foam pumpkins the screw driver will go right through it with not much effort.



Now it is time to thread the ribbon through the holes.

I used a bobby pin to help me hold the ribbon and make this step easier.

Keep in mind the order that you want the pumpkins in.


Before you know you are going to be done.



The last thing I did was to tie a bow at each end.

It looks cute and you can use the loop of the bow to hang your garland.


You are done my friend.

Hang it and enjoy it!

I used my garland to decorate an old window that it is in my kitchen.


I hope you have a minute and visit with me over at The 36th AVENUE and take a look

of my finished old window and our New Halloween Kitchen Décor.

It is so fun!

See you there!

Jen, THANK YOU SO MUCH for having me.

You know how much I love you, your readers and your blog!

Wishing you all a Happy Thursday!
