After all these years I still love writing this blog.
It’s an honor.
I think some days I love it more than a hot fudge sundae with whipped cream and sprinkles on top.
More than walking along the road with the first hint of fall in the air and the leaves changing colors and tumbling to the ground.
Some days I love it more than finding a yard sale where they are about to close up shop and it’s hot and the husband is watching the sale because his wife went inside to make lemonade and he doesn’t really care what everything sells for so you score a set of old croquet mallets for $1.00 and he throws in a vintage stool for free because he doesn’t want to haul it to Goodwill.
I love it more than these amazing, incredible DIY no sew woven pumpkins I just made.
I love writing this blog more than that.
And that’s a whole lot.
I love thinking about the post all day and what I’m going to say. And how I’m going to say it and laugh out loud to myself when I’m writing it and then I wonder if you’ll read it and think it’s as funny as I do.
Or maybe not 🙂
But my favorite part of writing my post is when I’m done.
When I think I have said all that I needed to say and just when I am going to click publish….
…..I just have to say one more thing.
Can you say you’re surprised? Really? We have known each other for a while now and there’s one thing we can all agree on. I always have something more to say.
And so? I PS it.
I love the PS. Post Script. *sigh* Isn’t it wonderful?
Just a little extra something.
Free of charge.
PS I found this amazing yarn and had to make these pumpkins.
PSS The yarn almost makes the project all by itself.
PSSS This project looks like you sewed it. But you DIDN’T. You glued it.
Here’s the super simple 10-minute tutorial on how I made these DIY no sew woven pumpkins.
DIY woven no sew pumpkins
pumpkins from the Dollar Store
Step 1: paint pumpkins and remove stem
If you can find white pumpkins, then just remove the stem and you are done with this step.
I found orange pumpkins, so I removed the stem, painted them white and let them dry.
I used three different sizes of pumpkins for this craft.
step 2: apply glue to top
This is the glue that I use.
You can tell how much I’ve used it by the bottle.
It’s been with me through tons of projects.
Start applying the glue to the top of the pumpkin.
Step 3: Start winding the yarn
Place the end of the yarn into the glue.
Hold with your finger and start winding.
The yarn gets a little twisted, so make sure to untwist it as you wind.
And flip it over and wind some more.
step 4: finish winding
Keep winding the yarn until you have completely covered the pumpkin.
Cut off the end of the yarn and press into place.
Press all the rest of your yarn into place.
step 5: add the stem
Add the stem back into the hole at the top of the pumpkin.
Twist it into place.
Tuck the edges of the yarn around it.
Your pumpkins are ready for fall.
PS Wasn’t this the easiest?
PSS Doesn’t it look like you sewed it?
PSSS This would make the cutest craft to sell at a craft show.
PSSSS You are AMAZING.
