Playful Pumpkin Patch
- Krylon Indoor/Outdoor Paint - Pumpkin Orange
- 1½" To 2" Diameter Tree Branch- Cut 4 to 5 Inches in Length
- Vinyl Dryer Hose
- Hot Glue
- Safety Wire
- Paper Clip
- Wire Cutters
Cut the dryer hose to a length of 2" per pumpkin (stretched out).
Fashion a hook out of a stretched paper clip and hook it into one end of the length of dryer hose.
While stretching out the dryer hose, spray the Pumpkin Orange in several light coats until the hose’s original color is no longer visible. Allow to dry for one hour.
After the hose is completely dry, bring the ends together and affix with the safety wire, clipping the excess off with the wire cutters.
Apply hot glue to the end of the cut tree branch and insert the glued end into the center hole created when the hose ends were put together.
Before the glue sets, add the raffia/excelsior in the glue at the stem base to simulate the vines.
