1. Roll and Shape the Rope:
To begin your macramé pumpkin, take the end of your rope and start rolling it into a small disk shape. Aim for a diameter of around 1 inch. This initial disk will serve as the core of your pumpkin.
2. Secure the Rope to the Wood Surface:
Apply a small amount of hot glue to the center of the unfinished wood surface. Gently press the flat side of your rope disk onto the glue, ensuring it’s centered and secure.
3. Wrap and Wind the Rope:
Now, it’s time to create the textured body of your macramé pumpkin. Apply a bit of hot glue to the wood surface where you’ll place your rope and begin winding it in circles. Keep adding glue and wrapping the rope in a circular motion, layer by layer, until you reach the outer edge of the wood surface. This will form the body of your pumpkin.
4. Attach the Finishing Touches:
For a rustic touch, glue a clothespin to the back of the wood surface. This will serve as both a decorative element and a practical way to attach the floral pick securely using the clothespin, allowing it to extend elegantly above the pumpkin. This adds a pop of color and a touch of nature’s beauty to your macramé pumpkin creation.
With these simple steps and a bit of artistic flair, you’ll have a stunning macramé pumpkin that’s perfect for adorning your mantel, dining table, or any cozy nook in your home. The best part? You crafted it yourself with a little guidance from our Ben Franklin Crafts and Frame Shop team.
