This project was submitted by Lezani Meyer who is a member of our Home Decorating, Upcycling and DIY Facebook group. These Dryer Vent Pumpkins are super easy to make and are a great addition to the inside of your home or porch this Fall (or Autumn as we call it here in the UK)!
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)
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!
