I swear, it is impossible for anyone in my family to say “pumpkin”.
So today I’m going to show you how I made “punkins” out of dryer vents.
Last week, I posted about a few of my favorite things and included this picture.
So there is no confusion, this is not an idea that I had – simply one I stole off Pinterest.
What you’ll need:
Dryer vents – I used two sizes, 4×20 and 3×8.
Spray paint – I used RustOleum’s “cinnamon” and “stone grey”.
Decorations – I used moss, rattan, and ribbon.
Sticks – that I picked up out of the front yard.
Hot glue gun.
Measure off enough vent to allow some give. I didn’t do this with my first set and the seam pulled. (Sorry, Mom!)
Glue, glue, glue, then take outside to spray paint. Away from anything that you don’t want to be orange. Because this stuff does not come off. Just ask my hand.
Anyway, while you’re out there, grab some sticks out of the yard for the stems.
And stab ‘em in. I did add some glue to make sure they held.
Then add the moss and whatever other decorations you’d like.
I added some curly green rattan to mimic vines, and a sweet little bow.
And that’s it! So easy, and they won’t sit on the front porch for way too many months and rot to the point that D has to scrape them off for you…
