Plump Pretty Pumpkins

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM Brand Products:
    • 1- 6" ball of STYROFOAM Brand Foam
  • 1- 10" x 18" sheet dark green corrugated paper
  • 1- 1/4 yd. quilt batting
  • 6- 12" x 5" calico scraps
  • Florist wire
  • Old candle
  • 3 rubber bands
  • Glue gun and glue sticks or craft glue
  • Cuticle scissors
  • Pencil
  • Serrated knife
  • Felt tip marker
  • Pattern

Instructions:

  1. Mark off 6 equal sections on ball of STYROFOAM. Mark center of top and bottom of ball; place 3 rubber bands around ball, crossing bands at the top and bottom, and positioning them so they form 6 equal sections. Draw lines around ball next to rubber bands.
     
  2. Cut off a 1/2" slice from bottom and top of ball with knife. Remark center of top and bottom; using tip of pencil, create hole at each end that is 3/4" wide and deep. Redraw section lines that were sliced off. Using sharp pencil, trace over vertical lines, creating 1/4" deep grooves
    .
  3. Enlarge patterns to actual size: A is 8-1/4" x 2-1/2", B is 9-1/4" x 3" and C is 10-3/4" x 4-3/4".
     
  4. Cut 6 pieces of batting from Patterns A and B. Center and glue batting piece A to each section of the ball. Center and glue batting piece B on top of smaller pieces, staying within section lines.
     
  5. Cut 6 pieces of fabric from Pattern C.
     
  6. Beginning with one section and working around the pumpkin, center a fabric piece over scored lines. Position knife on lines and push seam allowances into foam. For a clean, crisp "seam," hold knife straight up and down. Push excess fabric into the holes at top and bottom of the ball; carefully trim excess fabric.
     
  7. Cut a 1-1/2" x 10" strip of corrugated paper. Roll tightly to create stem, gluing end to hold. Cover one end in glue and push into top of pumpkin. Cut leaves from remaining paper. Coat one tip of leaf in glue and push into top of pumpkin beside stem.
     
  8. Wind florist wire around pencil to make tendrils and glue into hole next to stem.
