Pantyhose Pumpkin

After reading comments about fall decorations, I decided to share my favorite. It's very easy, cheap and adorable. This would also be a good craft to do with kids.

Here is what you need:

Two pairs of old pantyhose
Orange and green poster paint and a paintbrush
Fiberfill
Scissors
Two rubber bands
Hot Glue Gun
Ribbon

Here is what you do (see picture of steps below):
  1. Cut the four legs off the pantyhose. Arrange the legs crossing over each other at the center like spokes of a wheel. Glue the legs together at the point where they all cross over each other.
  2. Cut the toe end off the foot of the pantyhose so that all the legs are open at the ends.
    Stuff all sections of pantyhose with fiberfill. Leave about 6 inches at the end of each stocking unstuffed.
  3. Pull the eight sections up and around to the center to form a pumpkin. Hold the sections together with a rubber band.
  4. Braid the excess stocking ends together to make a stem for the pumpkin. Hold the braided stem in place with another rubber band.
  5. Paint the pumpkin orange and the stem green. (As you can see, I chose not to paint the stem). Tie ribbon around stem. You can turn this pumpkin into a jack-o'-lantern by gluing on a face cut from black felt.
