What you need to make a dryer vent pumpkin:

  • Dryer vent
  • Spray Paint – (Your choice)
  • Old branches
  • Dried moss
  • Leather man multi tool
  • hot glue gun (optional)

 

How to:

Take a piece of dryer vent and put the two ends together to make a circle..it should end up looking like the shape of a pumpkin. Large vents make bigger looking pumpkins and smaller vents make smaller ones

I made them quite tight, that way your stem/stick doesn’t need to be glued, you can just press it in firmly and it holds as the product is very light weight. Fold edges over each other and secure.

 

 

I just pushed the one into the other and bent the top wire over a bit with a leatherman too

Spray with desired colour – I used Rustoleum spray paint but you can also keep them silver and put silver glitter over them. Stems are branches from the garden and I used dried out moss around stems. You can also use a cinnamon stick for a stem if you like.

If you make them looser, you can use it as a wreath and you can also wrap them with fabric or stack them on top of each other.

And VOILA your project is done and ready to go – easy peazy DIY dryer vent pumpkins!
