Rope Pumpkins

Don’t you love it when you find a craft that is super cute, easy to make, and light on the pocket book? Well friends, I have just that for you today.

I love the natural look of these pumpkins! They are made with sisal rope and are so easy to make. In fact, it’s kind of hard to stop at just one. You can even make two different sizes of pumpkins. I have the measurements for the large pumpkins and for the small pumpkins. Heck, you might as well make a couple of both!

To make the pumpkins, I  bought a 1/4 in. x 50 ft. roll of sisal rope at Home Depot for around $8.50. You can buy the natural or the light brown rope.  You will be able to make 4 to 5 pumpkins with this rope. I also bought the pvc pipe in a 3 ft. section for around $3.00 and cut it into a 2 inch sections with pvc pipe cutters.

So lets get crafting with these Super cute and very affordable Rope Pumpkins!

With love from my kitchen to yours,
