I told you that my friend had given me some craft items, right? Well one of the items was a gallon bag full of cinnamon sticks. What to do, what to do???? So I teamed up with my pal, Pinterest and saw the cutest little thing ever. I'm gonna tell you how to make these sweet little pumpkins, but then if I figured it out, I bet you would too.
All you need for this project is:
copper scouring pads
curly wire for trim
hot glue and glue gun
I bought the scourers at Dollar Tree, three in a package. The cinnamon sticks I cut down to 2". The curly wire is from my Etsy shop (you can purchase here) or simply make your own by curling a piece of wire around a pencil or paintbrush. I used one of my wires per pumpkin, just bending in half. I had some leaves in my hoard, so I just snipped off some. The example on Pinterest used leaves cut from green felt. Push the cinnamon stick down into the scourer, add the wire, leaf, and I used a little piece of raffia that I tied into a bow. Hot glue in place.
These are small and I am sure you can get larger scouring pads at the grocery store but you may have to pay a little more. You could add a tag or another leaf. Let me know how you make yours!
