Wire Pumpkin Tutorial

I found this tutorial and had to make them.

Each pumpkin is $1.00ea and so simple to make.  First you start with a package of floral wire from the Dollar Store and a round container.  Anything round will do.  The larger the circumference the less loops and the larger the pumpkin, the smaller the circumference the smaller the pumpkin and more loops. 
Wrap the wire around the container, leaving a bit at the end so you can make a curly.
Take the curl off the cylinder and use twist tie that was on the package of floral wire and twist it in the center like so....
Then fan out the coils, twist the stem and presto....you have a pumpkin.
What a fun and simple craft to do with the kids!
Lily took these to school and gave them to her teachers.
