2. Slide a small piece of yarn (or string, or twine, or raffia, or ribbon, or thread, or dental floss - seriously, whatever you have) through the very first two loops of wire on both ends of the slinky.
3. Tie the yarn together in a double knot. Now the interior side of the slinky pumpkin is secured.
4. Slide the yarn in between the same loops of wire again, slide the yarn to the outside of the slinky circle and tie in a double knot.
5. You should now have what looks like a slinky donut.
1. Take some cinnamon sticks and break them to roughly the height of the slinky plus several inches. Bundle them together,
2. And tie them with raffia, securing with a double knot.
3. Stick your cinnamon stick bundle down into the center of your slinky donut. It should be tall enough that you can see the knotted raffia - it should stick up out of the slinky while still touching the table.
4. Done! Don't trim the raffia, that's like the vines coming off the stem!
Told you it was ridiculously simple.
Remember Pumpkinspiration Week from a few years back? We had fun guest projects and posts, a round-up, tutorials, food, funny pictures...
Though I don't have the posts and tutorials to devote an entire week to pumpkins this time around, I thought I'd share a quick pumpkin round-up with you.
AND, you can check out even more pumpkin ideas over on my "pumpkinspiration" pinboard on pinterest.
And if that doesn't inspire some pumpkin love, I don't know what will...
