Use inexpensive yarn and empty oatmeal or coffee canisters to create cute pumpkin or witch Halloween decorations. You can also create a hanging Halloween pumpkin with the same yarn.
Pumpkin Canisters and Hoop: 1 Skein No. 254 Pumpkin CC for each canister or hoop.
Pumpkin Canisters (A)
Top: Trace circumference of canister lid onto center of green felt. Mark 1¼” for small canister or 1½” for large canister all around the outside of this circle and cut out the larger circle. Cut out triangular shapes to within ¼” of center circle to form jagged edge. Glue to lid top and side edges. Cut a few more triangles from remaining felt for “leaves” and glue to center of lid top.
Pumpkin Hoop (B)
Witch Canister (C)
Hair: Cut 60 28” lengths of CB; tie together at center with a separate length of yarn. Cut 60 20” lengths of CB; tie together 5” from one end with a separate length of yarn. Glue tied area of first bundle to center of can lid, spread strands to cover opposite quarters of lid and glue in place. Repeat with second bundle, gluing tied area to first tied area and spreading strands to cover remaining 2 quarters of lid; glue. The short strands become the front bangs of the witch’s hair. Trim.
Hat: Cut a 12” diameter full circle and an 18” diameter half circle from black felt. Glue circle over hair on lid. Over lap straight edges of half circle several inches to form a cone for top of hat. Trim excess felt; glue over lapped edges. Center open edge of cone over top of hat and glue.
