Totally Tubular Pumpkins

By:

We all have a pile of socks that have lost their mate.  If you have a lonely tube sock, you can easily make these Totally Tubular Pumpkins.  With these upcycle crafts, Halloween decorations can be original and adorable!

Totally Tubular Pumpkins

Materials:

  • 4 3" STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam balls
  • Tube sock, man's large
  • Fabric dye, orange
  • Floral wire, green
  • Felt: green, brown, white, black
  • Chenille stems, green
  • Wire knippers
  • Scissors
  • Straight pins
  • Sharp pencil
  • Needle
  • Green thread
     

Instructions:

  1. Following instructions on package, dye sock orange. Let dry.
     
  2. Insert foam ball into sock and push down to toe. Pull sock tight around ball and wrap a 2-1/2" length of green floral wire around sock; twist closed. Tuck wire ends into foam ball.
     
  3. Repeat with remaining balls, positioning balls as close together as possible.
     
  4. Cut off the excess sock, leaving a 3/8" tail. Remove the last wire. Using a sharp pencil, make a hole in center of exposed ball. Add glue to hole and firmly push sock fabric into hole. If needed, hold in place with straight pins till glue dries.
     
  5. Arrange the four pumpkins so they're sitting in a straight row. Gently press each ball to flatten the bottom to prevent rolling.
     
  6. Cut from green felt 5 sets of double leaves. Stitch through the connecting piece between the two leaves and pull the thread tight to shape the leaves. Knot securely.
     
  7. Glue a set of leaves between the pumpkins and at either end. Cut a double leaf apart and attach to the top of a pumpkin, if desired.
     
  8. Cut four 1-1/2" x 1" strips of brown felt; roll into tubes and glue ends. Insert pencil into top of each pumpkin, making hole. Place glue in hole and insert stem; hold in place with pins till glue dries.
     
  9. Wind a 2" - 3" length of chenille stem around pencil. Insert curled stem next to felt stem.
     
  10. Cut fun faces from black and white felt. Glue in place.
