Twine Pumpkins: tutorial on how to ordinary kitchen string, twine, and balloons to craft these beautiful decorative pumpkins for fall.
This fall, I’m loving the look of burlap, white pumpkins, and all things neutral. These twine pumpkins are the perfect addition to my table with battery operated tea lights.

How To Make Twine Pumpkins
I blew up several small balloons, all in slightly different sizes.
Next, I dipped the strings in white glue, and got my hands dirty wrapping the balloons.
After the string was dry, I popped the balloons, and made sure there was a big enough space in the bottom to insert a battery operated candle.
Then, I went for a little walk to the forest, and found a stick large enough to resemble a pumpkin stem. I cut the stick to length, and glued it to the top of the string ball with a little hot glue.
I grouped the five little pumpkins on a cream coloured runner on my kitchen table. They look great flickering away in the evening.
This was a fun, and simple project, and I got lots of compliments on them at Thanksgiving. 😉
With twine pumpkins, life really is a party!
