Wondering how that would look, I gave it a try.
Olefin Mesh (15yd roll, Michaels)
Starting at the top I used my thumb to make a loop of the mesh and gathered and pinned the bottom of the loop to the pumpkin. I continued doing this around the entire pumpkin, looping and shaping the mesh.
I made sure to fold the sides in to avoid additional fraying.
I started laughing at the way this looks. Doesn't it remind you of roller hair
or something silly?
After finishing the loops, I rolled up a piece of mesh and pinned it to the top for a stem.
This mesh pumpkin is really cute and makes a unique addition to any place setting! Especially one with other dollar store items!
