Easy Decorative Pumpkin Craft with Rope

I'm celebrating the season with a rope pumpkin. Check it out!

I saw this easy decorative pumpkin craft idea with rope somewhere(don't remember where), so I gave it a try last week. And what can I say, I'm in love with the little pumpkin guy!

I found a cardboard shipping tube in the basement -perfect! I cut a piece off, and the wrapping could begin. Soon I realized that I didn't have enough rope. And even if I did, it would take me forever to build up bulk. I intended to get this pumpkin craft done while watching Project Runway!

So I started over, using heavy duty rope. Then I added the other rope on top.

And by the time the contestants were lined up in front of the judges, my decorative pumpkin had fully materialized, complete with a driftwood stem and a small shell.

Have you done any pumpkin crafts for this season?

Great idea! I actually like the look of the heavy duty rope too, depending on where you are using it in your house.
