Baker’s Twine Pumpkins

I love the classic look of baker’s twine.  So why not find a way to use it in fall decoration.  These baker’s twine pumpkins can be made in any color you choose and are a wonderful addition to your fall decor.

Materials needed:

Begin on either the top or the bottom of your pumpkin.  Coat a small area in Mod Podge and begin to wrap in twine.  This craft is messy as you will get Mod Podge on your hands but I found it was the best adhesive for the baker’s twine.

Keep wrapping.  Be sure to put your twine tight as you wrap so you don’t get any gaps.  Using lots of Mod Podge worked best because the surface is bumpy and can be hard to work the twine around.

On the smaller pumpkins, I actually left the stem alone.  The end of the twine can be tucked under the stem on this end.

The larger pumpkin got a green baker’s twine stem as well as the orange on the body.  The larger pumpkins especially take a while.  Pop in a movie before you start on this project.

But within the span of a movie, I had a large pumpkin and five smaller ones.  Enough to add to this display and make a very cute baker’s twine touch.

Intimidated?  Don’t be!  Start with a small mini pumpkin and some Mod Podge.  Wrap the small ones until you get the hang of it.  Then you can dive head first into a large pumpkin.  One large roll of baker’s twine will easily do a large pumpkin so don’t worry about running out.

Add some baker’s twine to your fall display with these simple and cute pumpkins!

  6. […] Design your own pumpkin! All you need is some twine and glue. Take a little glue to the bottom of the pumpkin to connect the twine. Then, start wrapping the twine around the pumpkin. This works well with smaller pumpkins especially. You can use any color of twine for this project. Top the pumpkin off with a bright leaf for this fall feel.
