DIY Wood Bead Pumpkin tutorial for cute neutral fall pumpkin decor in your home.
I’m so excited to be sharing my first fall tutorial of the season!
I’ve been looking forward to fall since spring and I’m so excited that I can finally start decorating for the cooler pumpkin season!
And to start off the PSL season I thought it would be fun to create a super cute pumpkin that while neutral will be a beautiful focal point in your fall decor.
I haven’t officially decided where this pumpkin is going to reside this fall, I keep moving it between our fireplace hearth and one of the shelves on our living room built-ins.
But realistically it probably won’t have a permanent location as I seem to always be moving things around!
Although I may need to go ahead and make a second one because I love it in both locations!
And it’s so incredibly easy to make too!
Earlier this spring, as I was eagerly looking forward to autumn, I came upon an adorable wood beaded farmhouse pumpkin by DIY With My Guy and I knew I wanted to make one for our home this fall.
So at the end of July, I started to gather the materials I would need to make this neutral fall pumpkin.
I ordered one type of wired twine online and when it arrived I realized it was way too flimsy to work, so I went on the hunt for one that would be able to hold the weight of these wood beads.
And I found the perfect twine wire (click here for the wire I used)!
I’m thinking this may be one of the cutest, fastest, and easiest DIY’s that I make this fall!
First, unravel the twine and then cut the twine into 4 pieces that are ~2.5 feet long each.
Fold the twine pieces in half to find the middle of each strand.
Then place two pieces of twine on top of each other, in the middle, and twist them together to create an X.
Do this a second time with the other two pieces of twine.
Then place both X’s (all 4 pieces) on top of each other and twist them together to form the center base of the pumpkin.
Next, string the wooden beads onto the twine.
I used 13 beads on each string, rotating the sizes to create a pattern.
For each strand of twine wire, I used 7 beads that were 25mm and 6 beads that were 30mm.
Continue this process until all of the twine has wooden beads on them.
Bring the excess twine up to the top and twist them together to create a pumpkin stem.
Hot glue two lambs ears on top, let cool, and then have fun decorating!
I hope this DIY tutorial helps you as you decorate your home!
