For this project I'm using just the sleeve. It would definitely be possible to do something like this with the torso of the sweater. It might just take a little creativity and patience.
Give that sleeve a snip!
Next, Turn the sleeve inside out. You will start to roll up the sleeve like a sock bun. Turning your sleeve inside out will give you a right side out pumpkin.
Start to roll....
Rollin' Rollin' Rollin'
Leave a little wrist cuff showing at the top. This will be your stem.
I bought some flower wire at my local craft store. Cut about 20 inches and wrap around the part of the sleeve sticking out.
My daughter needed a little assistance with the wire. Just watch out for little eyes.
I saw these paper wrapped wires at the store. Also in the floral section.
We wrapped that around too...
I then took some green tape and wrapped that as well. We were rappin' while we were wrappin'
I had some fake leaves in my crafting bin, you can cut your own from felt, or even from paper.
I realize they are not pumpkin leaves, but it still looked cool!
My daughter decided to make her very own green and white pumpkin. I helped her with the wire, but she did the rest all on her own.
Re-Purpose! Re-Fashion! Recycle!
See you next time!
