Make a DIY Dryer Hose Pumpkin

       I'm jumping on the dryer duct pumpkin craze!

Make a DIY Dryer Vent Pumpkin.

I really didn't think it was possible to like a dryer duct so much! Not my invention but I just had to give it a try!

I began with this piece of hose/duct/vent (whatever you want to call it) actually leftover from my dryer installation. You can buy it HERE

I'm telling you... it is beneficial to hang onto a little bit of  everything. 

I turned the dryer duct into a pumpkin shape and used hot glue to connect the ends.

I cut a champagne cork and hot glued it to the top as a stem along with a clump of moss

To make a coiled tendril I used a piece of coated wire and wrapped it around the handle of a small tool.

I used glossy orange spray paint on one of my pumpkins and matte grey spray paint on the other.

I added a faux leaf and a piece of pip berry to the top of the grey pumpkin for decoration.

These pumpkins are a cinch to make and the dryer hose is not expensive!
