Here's the yarn trivet I made with the Premier's "Mint Swirl" Sweet Roll yarn. As promised, I'm sharing the tutorial for the pumpkin. If it's not obvious, it's made of yarn too.
I actually made a second yarn balloon using the technique I shared yesterday. Follow the steps up through popping the balloon. Then, simply tear orange tissue paper and apply pieces of it to the hardened yarn using Mod Podge.
While that is drying, dip two strands of green yarn (approximately 2 feet each) into white glue and wrap them around a plastic fork.
Let it dry completely (overnight, to be sure), then slide it off the fork.
Brush the yarn tails with white glue and wrap them around pencil stubs. Let that dry and you have curly vines attached to the stem.
Glue the stem to the top of the pumpkin.
Thanks again to Premier Yarns for providing me with these versatile yarns!
