Jute Pumpkins

These rope pumpkins are so easy to make and add that rustic, fall feel.  We spruced up our deck with mums and, of course, pumpkins galore.

I used small soup cans for thin rope and larger soup cans for thicker yarn to create these adorable pumpkins.  Simply wrap a good 30 times around the soup can, tie super tight in the middle, slide off the can, make sure string is as tight as possible.  Make four sets, hot glue each group to your pumpkin stem.  I used driftwood pieces for mine.  You can saw a stick in 6" to 8" pieces for a perfect stem.  The large pumpkins with heavier rope are a bit more challenging to hold in place, but after a couple of tries, I got the hang of it.  Aren't they great?  You can use colored twine as well!
