Raffia Wrapped Pumpkins
What you need:
3.25″ wood circles
green pipe cleaners/chenille stems
glue gun safe for kids (they operate at a low temperature and kids love working with them – and more and more preschools use them)
Using raffia, wrap the wood circle once and affix with hot glue to hold. Continue to wrap the circle. I wrap around 3-5 times before changing directions. You may need to add a dab of hot glue to the back of your circle every now and again to keep your raffia from slipping. When happy with your finished project, glue on back with hot glue and cut raffia.
Cut a pipe cleaner in half. Wrap around a pencil or other cylinder shape to create a spring.
Using green felt, cut out a stem shape.
Attach the stem and pipe cleaner vine onto the back of your pumpkins..
