Tutorial Tuesday: Dryer Duct Pumpkin



I was so excited when I saw this idea a couple weeks back. I was excited because it is super cute and we had just replaced out dryer duct, so I had some left over and didn't have to go out a buy one!! So this past weekend I decided that it would be a fun craft to do with my kids.





This is how you make it:
1) Cut a piece of dryer duct. When I cut it I made my into a circle and then added a couple of inches (just to make sure).

2) Using a hot glue fun, I glued the duct into a circle

3) Paint your duct. I let my boys paint it with brushes, just for fun. But I would not paint it like this, it would take forever!


So after they painted for 15 minutes, I took out the spray paint

4) Add a stick and raffia. My one son didn't want raffia on his...

So cute and easy!!
