DIY Cute String And Thread Pumpkins

This is such a sweet way to decorate for fall.  This DIY string and glue project is really easy and cheap to make.  I like the fuzzy thread that was used on the orange pumpkin.  You can also use this idea to make snowmen for the winter.  Add some googly eyes and felt to personify that project.  Thanks Clumsy Crafter for a cute idea.

When I was a little girl my mom used to make easter eggs using string and starch. This week I decided to try making some string pumpkins since you might think I was a little crazy posting Easter Eggs right now.  It worked great so I decided to share them with you. Do you want to make some of these?
Let’s get started…
You will need balloons (one per pumpkin), white glue, water, foam craft brush or paintbrush, and crochet yarn. That’s all.
I could only find a yellowish orange crochet yarn but I didn’t let that stop me. I also found a fuzzy thread on clearance that I used on one pumpkin.
