Sweater Sleeve Pumpkins
These are so fun to make. I had seen them on-line last year.
To see the original tutorial just type 'sweater sleeve pumpkin tutorial' into your search bar for several sets of instructions.
I'd like to share my tips with you...
An adult sweater will yield 4 pumpkins...two from each sleeve.
Just cut...no need to measure.
I wrapped two rubber bands around the end to make sure it was secure.
Turn sweater sleeve right side out.
I like to add a scant cup-ful of rice.
This makes a nice foundation for the bottom of the pumpkin.
Use more or less, depending on the size of your pumpkin.
Stuff your pumpkins to desired plumpness.
I have polyester stuffing...
some folks use plastic grocery bags.
Separate the twines on the bottom and bring them around to the top.
Grasp tightly and secure with another rubber band or two.
...don't you think?!!
