STEPS TO CREATE CONCRETE PUMPKINS
It’s time to try your hand at creating with concrete. This is basically a foolproof DIY.
Container to mix concrete
Large spoon to stir concrete
Container of water
Pantyhose or tights
Cut the tights or pantyhose about mid calf.
Then put inside a plastic cup and spread the opening over the top of the cup.
This will hold it steady so you can fill it with concrete.
Begin mixing concrete and water until you have a consistency of cake batter.
Pour into the opening of the tights that are stretched across the plastic cup.
The size of your pumpkin will be determined by how much concrete you use.
After you have filled your tights, pull it out of the cup. Next, use a rubber band to secure the top so nothing leaks out.
Using the other rubber bands, place them around the pumpkin to create the sections or lines.
You only need two or three rubber bands to do this.
Let dry overnight. Then cut the rubber bands and pull the tights away from the pumpkin and discard.
Decide what you would like to use for a stem and glue it on and you are done.
I hope you enjoyed learning how easy it is to create these pumpkins. Next on the hop is Lora from Lora B. Create and Ponder. She is sharing the cutest project, she has used a vintage quilt to create a witch hat. You can see her post here.
