Coffee Filter Pumpkins


I love how these pumpkins turned out, and love love love that I didn't have to buy anything to make them I had everything on hand!





Supplies you need to make them are:

Coffee filters
Cinnamon sticks
Twine
Stapler
Glue Gun




To start wad up coffee filters.


 

Pinch and twist the middle of the filter



Staple three filters together




Glue two cinnamon sticks together.





Start gluing on the groups of filters to the cinnamon sticks. (I used five groups of filters for each pumpkin.)




Continue gluing all of the filter groups to the cinnamon stick until you have a full pumpkin shape.




Spray paint your pumpkin if you want and tie on some twine. (For curly twine just wrap it tightly around a pencil and hold there for a minute.)




Enjoy your finished pumpkins!
The white pumpkin in the front I didn't wad up the filters I just pinched the middle of the filter and stapled the as with the other. It makes a cute ruffly pumpkin then I tied twine and burlap on top of it.

Be creative and have fun making your own I would love to see what you come up with!

Heather, this is really cute, and who doesn't love free. I was just looking at my coffe filters the other day, wondering what I could do with them. Not that there aren't any ideas already all over, but I don't think I've seen this yet, and I love it. How easy. Thank you for sharing, and I would REALLY love if you came to link these up to **6 weeks 2 Spook** it's all things Halloween, and this would be perfect. Hope to see your pumpkins soon :)
