By Nicole Irving, Publisher and Editor-In-Chief

These easy to create fall pumpkins are a perfect way to add festive fall decor to any room in the house this season. And, the best part about them is that you can keep them for years to come! 


   Crafting Styrofoam Balls – Variety of Sizes
(we got ours at Hobby Lobby)

                             Yarn (recommend using thicker yarn)


     Glue gun


      Apple Corer

       Sticks from yard

        Crochet hook



Cut the tops and bottoms off of the ball. It doesn’t have to be perfect, as real pumpkins aren’t! 

Use the apple corer to create a hole in the center, going all the way through the ball. 

Use the crochet hook to weave the yarn or twine through the hole and around the pumpkin, until the whole pumpkin is covered. 

Secure with hot glue when done. 

Insert stick into the top hole and attach with hot glue. 

Place in a festive basket or around the house.
