There are just some people that when you meet them, you know instantly how very special they are! This is how I felt when I met Robin from All Things Heart & Home at the Haven Conference. Robin is very talented and just an absolutely delightful person! I asked if she could come and share some of her crafty goodness with ya’ll today. Take it away Robin!!!

I love a good burlap pumpkin!

Hello my Sand and Sisal friends! I’m Robin with All Things Heart and Home and I’m so happy Kim asked me to hang out with you today! My husband and I are always doing a DIY projects,

from building a Arched Tudor Entry Door to putting together a Mason Jar Light! But for the past couple of weeks I’ve been doing all-things fall so today I wanted to show you an easy pumpkin project…

This is super easy and doesn’t require any messy cutting of burlap 🙂

I used burlap ribbon to wrap a pumpkin from Walmart… see! Couldn’t be easier!

You’ll Need:

  • Styrofoam Based Pumpkin-(mine was a pumpkin from Walmart )
  • Burlap Ribbon
  • Floral Pins
  • Glue Gun
  • A couple of fall leaves

If possible take the stem off of your pumpkin…the stem of the cheap Walmart pumpkin was really easy to remove.

Start your ribbon on the bottom using a floral pin to hold it in place…wrap it all the way around and use that original pin to secure both pieces of ribbon…burlap pumpkins

At the top of the pumpkin you’ll need to twist and add a pin…

With another piece of burlap repeat the process…

Continue with new pieces of burlap until the pumpkin is covered…On some of the pieces I turned the edges under just to make them look neater…burlap pumpkins

When your pumpkin is covered cut the last piece of burlap and pin making sure all the burlap is secure…(I added a bit of hot glue in a strip down some of the edges to keep them flat)burlap pumpkins

Cut a circle out of burlap to cover pins and glue on with glue gun…burlap pumpkins

Make a hole in the top of the pumpkin where the stem was, I used an X Acto knife…

Put hot glue in the hole and put the stem back in, then add some glue under the base of the stem…while I had the glue gun out I put a thin line of hot glue down some of the edges that were lifting and I glued on a couple of fall leaves from a garland…burlap pumpkins

This little collage gives you a few more pics in case you need them…
