Ribbon Pumpkin

I love this time of year! I can't help but see Potential Pumpkins in everything!

This particular one is great for using up left over Ribbon !

Supplies you will need:

• Ribbon

• some sort of stem ( I used a long Christmas ornament)

• book page

• hot glue

• moss



My ribbon was about 2" wide and it did have wire in it .. I'm sure you can use ribbon without it too.

I pretty much just started roll it and just adding a little glue here and there as I rolled .



Once you get it as big as you want it you can then cut it and glue the end down .


I pretty much used up all this ribbon I had so it worked out pretty well.


I simply glued the end down.


So here is my pumpkin.



I then chose to cut a little slit on top so I could stick my stem in .

I used this beautiful ornament as my stem !

I picked up a bag of assorted ornaments at a local resale shop for only $1 Christmas items were on sale in July.

I did add a little hot glue before sticking my ornament stem on .


I used a page from a book and cut out some leaves and painted them green .

You can use whatever shade green you like .


I also made some paper roses! I love these !


I painted them a light wash of orange .


Once my leaves were dry I also distressed them by rubbing my brown ink pad on them .


I glued my leaves on and also crinkled them a little . It looks so pretty already!


At this point I added a little moss . Use whatever kind you would like.


I then used some rafia I love to split the strands so the strands can be nice and thin for the bow ! 😀


Look how pretty that looks!



I then glued on my roses!

So pretty!


I added a cute hang tag! I just used another piece of the book page and stamped this cute pumpkin on it !


Just look how nice it all looks together.



I did add just a little dried swigs to the top as well . I actually got this from my yard .



For the finishing touch I lightly sprayed it with a little spray sealer and sprinkled some Diamond Dust glitter!



There you have it it's so pretty and so much fun to create!

I hope you give this a try !
