DIY DRYER VENT PUMPKINS, A NICE DECORATION FOR INSIDE THE HOUSE!

Dryer Vent Pumpkin {Tutorial}




   Last year I made some dryer vent pumpkins. I didn't really post a tutorial and since I was making a bunch more this year I decided to tell you how I did it. It's super duper easy and there are a ton of ways to personalize them to your style.




   I bought two different sizes of dryer vent at Home Depot. They measure 3in and 4in, I only made one size last year but I wanted to add some variety this go around. I cut them using wire cutters and scissors, making sure I had enough length by twisting the vent in a circle and giving a little extra room for gluing.




  I used hot glue to attach the two raw ends of the dryer vent together. Side note: the metal of the dryer vent will get very hot once the hot glue is applied and your pressing it together. Not that I learned that the hard way or anything!!!




   Once they are glued it's painting time. This is where you can change things up to match your style! Want more neutral colors? More vibrant colors? How about metallics??? I used Heirloom White and Real Orange by Rustoleum.




   Once the paint was dry it was time to add a "stem". I used a cinnamon stick and glued it into the center of the pumpkin. You can use a stick from the yard or a cut piece of wood, whatever you fancy! I also added a bit of spanish moss for a little texture and warmth.




I love the orange ones....but I'm totally crushing on the white ones!!!





I love them! I'm bringing a ton to my show on Friday (If you live on the California Central Coast and your interested in attending please let me know!)
