Beaded Pumpkins

This is another craft that I sent to my daughter’s class for them to create at their Halloween party. It’s extremely simple to do, and all the kids loved it!  I hope you are all staying safe, Healthy and HAPPY!

First of all I cleaned off my craft area.  Then I gathered all of my supplies.  I used orange pony beads (you can use any color), orange pipe cleaners, and green pipe cleaners. Then I took 4 pipe cleaners, and entwined them in the middle where it looks like wheel spokes.  On each “spoke”, I pushed 15 pony beads to the very center. I held the middle of the “wheel spoke” and pulled all of the pipe cleaners together, then I twisted the pipe cleaners together at the top to hold them all together.  Then I took a green pipe cleaner and created a stem on the orange pipe cleaner at the top.  Finally, I “fluffed out” my pumpkin by pulling each pipe cleaner back to make a pumpkin shape!
