Want a unique way to create pumpkin decor for your home for fall or Halloween? Try out this super easy dryer vent hose pumpkin and make many for just a few dollars!
I am a busy little bee this week. I am currently in the middle of making centerpieces for a hospital fundraising dinner. Did I mention that it needed to be 40 centerpieces? And that they want to auction them off? And that they are fall themed? Well, I definitely cannot just throw up some real pumpkins and call it good. We are no where close enough to any harvest holidays. So, I have taken it upon myself to create some really cute pumpkins that can be kept all year long.
I am making a few different kinds, and today’s project was so very easy, I couldn’t believe it. Who knew you could make a pumpkin out of a dryer vent hose? This project literally took 5 minutes to put together (not counting spray paint drying time).
Make a Pumpkin out of a Dryer Vent Hose
This is what you need to make these:
Dryer Vent Hose (I was able to get 7 large pumpkins out of one hose)
Spray Paint, I chose white, but you can do any color you want.
Stick or piece of wood for the stem.

I started by stretching the dryer vent hose.
I then curled it into itself, to make an “O”. I cut with foil part with scissors, and there is one wire that will need to be cut with wire cutters.
Once it was cut, I checked to make sure the ends could connect. I then added hot glue to the edge of one side of the hose and then pressed them together, making sure to hold it for about 1 minute, to make sure it is secure.
I then took them outside and painted them with my white spray paint.
The last thing I did was cut a few leaves out of fabric, and found a few sticks in my yard for the stem.
I hot glued the stick into the middle of the pumpkin and then added the fabric leaves as a fun accent.
Guys, that is it, It was that easy. I wish all projects went this smooth. On top of being super easy, it was quite inexpensive as well!
So, I would say if you are looking for a new way to add some fall flare to your home, this is a great way.
