Burlap Pumpkin

I rate this *****easy peasy****
 
Following along my last post of burlap LOVE-I had some scraps left over from making my last pillows so I decided to make one of these cute little pumpkins. I saw this on pinterest and thought - hey cute & easy.
Now I must say my hubby saw it and said - why? why would you need that?
Oh ye of little faith!
 
so here is what you need to get started...
burlap pins & 1 Styrofoam ball-
cut out circles all the same shape or different sizes
cut the bottom corner off - so you are giving yourself a flat base
 
 
fold the circles in half, then in half again and grab the
corner and put the pin in through there

 
keep adding circles and try to follow the same direction

 
 

 
here is the bottom of the ball that was pre-cut (just with a serrated knife)
I added a small lily pad shaped piece of burlap in brown to the bottom just
so it is finished off.

 
and there you go a cute burlap pumpkin to add to your Autumn & fall decor.
sweet and if you have time you could use a larger sized Styrofoam ball and make an even bigger pumpkin...

 
Hope you like it.
 
I am linking this up to the following weekend parties:

Love the burlap pumpkin, makes me think I could even do that!

Happy WCMD, just sitting down to catch up from the day and get some stamping done with a friend.
