Whimsical Chenille Pumpkin!

 Well Bloggers, We are now on day 9 of the 31 days and it is going so fast! I have been saving this post for a few days but I hope you give it a try.  I had been thinking about making one of these chenille pumpkins for a while and I guess the other day while I was at walmart I decided to look for the supplies. It really is pretty cool but I am not sure if you can tell that by the pictures!
 This is not where i am going to place it but I thought you could see it better in the pictures.
 The supplies are a $5 pumpkin from Walmart, Tacky glue $.99 and Bernat Baby Blanket $2.50/ You could use yarn that you have on had also...wouldn't lime green be sweet?
 Well, this picture didn't help at all.
 There we go. I just put glue on the pumpkin in small sections and then I would twirl it into a circle. Once it was the size I wanted I pushed in together to squish it a little bit.
This is what it looks like up close and personal...it is so soft. The next time I may coffee stain the yarn first and then make the pumpkin but I am not going to do that on this one. It took about half of the yarn for this project. If you try it send me a message so  I can see how yours turned out...

What a cool idea. At first I thought you cut apart chennille bedspreads and stuffed. I like it! Thanks for sharing.

So very clever! I must agree with Robin...at first I thought you had used a slice of bedspread. Thank you for sharing the tutorial!

Happy day to you...
