It is finally October! The pumpkin patch by my house is open and we are slowly decorating the house! I quickly put together this decoration and can’t wait to share my adorable pumpkin garland tutorial. This seriously took me no time to make and cost $3!! Yep. The price of a latte.

I love doing fun crafts, but I really love a craft with a purpose! My kids bring home tons of art work from school and things that I just can’t store around the house. When I look to make something, I want it to have a dual purpose. Like this pumpkin garland tutorial… the kids can have fun and I can use it to decorate.

This craft is easily enjoyed while sipping on some Pumpkin Spice Latte or even munching on macadamia nut cookies!

Supplies needed for this Pumpkin Garland tutorial:

My simply EASY instructions to said pumpkin garland:

  1. To get started, wind the yarn around your fingers 100 times. This is a fun counting exercise with the kids. Counting to a hundred seemed like a huge feat and they definitely had fun.
  2. Next, take a 4 inch piece of yarn and string through the yarn that is wrapped on your fingers. This will secure the yarn to make the pumpkin. Tie a nice knot to hold it tightly. I tucked in the yarn on the sides to make it a nice ball shape.
  3. After you have a nice pumpkin, secure the green pipe cleaner stem using that same piece of yarn used to secure the pumpkin. See the picture if you are confused. I am not the best at directions.
  4. Repeat the last three steps as many times as you need pumpkins. I settled with six.

Last of all, attach your pumpkins to the twine. I used that same 4 inch piece of yarn to secure it. I made sure to keep an even spacing and made 2 loops on either end to hang.
