- Frozen Juice Can Lid
- Orange, Bumpy Chenille Stem
- Green Chenille Stem
- Scrap of Green Felt or Craft Foam
- Black Seed Beads
- Craft Glue
Bend the orange, bumpy chenille stem on the skinny sections so it sort of looks like this VVVV. Pinch the folded sections together. Stick one side of the folded edges so they catch on the inside edge of the bottle cap. Stick the other folded edges inside the opposite side of the bottle cap. Fluff up the center part of the chenille stem and make it look rounded like a pumpkin.
Cute a 1-inch piece of green pipe cleaner and stick it in the top of the pumpkin to be a stem. Cute two small leafs out of felt or craft foam and glue in place near the stem. Make eyes, nose, and mouth out of black seed beads.
Finally, glue a magnet on the back of the pumpkin. Once the glue is dry, hang up your pumpkin magnet where ever you choose!
