Pumpkin String Art Ornament- Tutorial

Pumpkin-String-Art-Ornament-650x650



Well, I have one last Halloween craft to share with y'all today. I have had this idea in my head for weeks, but I just haven't had time to implement it yet. I have a Halloween tree that I purchased from PBK several years ago on clearance after Halloween. It is a beautiful black tree with a black pot. I've purchased some ornaments for it and the kids help me make ornaments for it most years, too. This year, I thought why not make some string art ornaments with birch tree rounds. This craft was SO easy, it took me 30 minutes tops per ornament.


Supplies
The supplies are pretty minimal for this craft. I purchased two different kinds of thin string in orange and green. You'll need gold (or silver) nails, eye hole screws, ribbon and tree rounds. I found the birch rounds at Hobby Lobby in their wood section.


Create_Draw-stencil
I found some clip art of a pumpkin shape online and I printed and cut it out. Then I traced around it with a pencil on the birch round.


Create_Eye-Hole-Fastener
Add the eye hole fastener to the top of each birch round.


Create_Nails-and-Stem
Then I hammered in some nails where the stem is at on the pumpkin.


Create_Outline-pumpkin-w-nails
This photo shows two steps, I wrapped the green string around the stem several times (don't forget to outline it with the thread, too!) and then I added nails around the perimeter of the pumpkin's body.


Pumpkins-on-White-No-Ribbon
Then, thread the orange string around the pumpkin's body. Easy peasy!


Pumpkins-on-White-No-Ribbon2
Isn't this the simplest string art project ever? You could do a Christmas ornament version of this, too! Such as a snowflake or Christmas tree.


Pumpkins-with-Ribbon2
Add some ribbon and tie a bow at the top of the ribbon and you have yourself an ornament!


Ornament-on-Pumpkin
You can even hang these on the stems of your pumpkins outside for a little extra decoration this fall.

These would also be cute to make for a little gift, to add onto gift wrap with a bow or you can make them without the eye hole screw and just display them on a shelf or mantel for decor.


Hanging-on-tree
For now, mine will hang on my Halloween tree. If you want to see my Halloween tree, click HERE.
