In case y’all haven’t noticed, pumpkins are the fall rage lately. Pumpkin spice is everywhere you look and while these may not smell as sweet as your pumpkin spice latte, they sure look adorable! With a pre-curled korker ribbon piece, these clips come together really fast but look like you spent lots of time fussing over them.
Cut your ribbon and heat seal the ends.
You need four 5″ pieces of orange and one 1″ piece of emerald. (I cut more ribbon than I needed in my picture above) I just gathered random korker pieces I had to see which would look best on the top of my pumpkin.
Fold all of your pieces in half and crease the center. Start with one piece laying out flat.
Glue your next piece to the center to form an X shape.
Glue your next two pieces diagonally.
Start looping your ribbons. Take one piece and pull both ends to form a loop. Glue them together.
Take your next piece of ribbon and pull the ends up to form another loop.
Repeat the above step with your next ribbon.
When you have glued all of your pieces you should have a round pumpkin ball.
I decided a 1.5″ korker piece would look best on my pumpkin.
Glue your korker piece to the top of your pumpkin.
Fold your 1″ green ribbon in half and glue the ends together.
Using just a dab of glue add your pumpkin stem to the center of the korker piece.
Add your lined clip to the bottom of your pumpkin and you’re finished! Another great way to finish this pumpkin would be to glue it onto an elastic headband.
