These pretty pumpkins are perfect for highlighting the natural beauty of autumn! Ashley Lowe shows us how to use Aleene’s Clear Gel Tacky Glue to create these gorgeous gourds wrapped in jute twine. This rustic décor will be a wonderfully warm welcome to friends and family when they visit for Thanksgiving!
· Plastic pumpkins and gourds
· Jute twine
Before you get started on your pumpkin projects, make sure your plastic pumpkins are clean and free of any debris. Starting at the top near the stem, apply Aleene’s Clear Gel Tacky Glue directly onto the pumpkin, working in sections.
Once the glue has been applied to your section, begin wrapping the jute twine clockwise into a tight coil so that none of the faux pumpkin shows through. While you are doing this, ensure that you are pressing on the twine so that it sticks to the glue. If there are any gaps, push the twine upward toward the stem and hold for a few seconds for the glue to adhere.
Once you are about halfway through wrapping your pumpkin or gourd, flip it upside down and continue to apply glue and coil twine until it is completely covered. Once you are satisfied with your coverage, cut the jute twine and apply more glue to secure the end piece. Allow to dry fully for at least 4 hours.
Repeat this process to create many pumpkins as you’d like and enjoy your gorgeous gourds!
