DIY Pumpkin Banner

Posted by on September 29th, 2011

The Fall love continues! I bought these pumpkin cut outs at the dollar store way back in August when the Fall decor was just being rolled out.

I didn’t have any clue what I was going to do with them, but I figured I would think of something. I was going through my Fall decor tote to see what items I didn’t put out yet when I came across my baggie full of fall colored ribbons and vase fillers.  I figured I would make a fall banner with the pumpkin cut outs and ribbon.

The cut outs came in four colors.  I am not crazy about the green pumpkin so I tried out my banner idea with the green ones before I used the others.

Here’s the ribbon I used. I bought a couple spools of this one last year to tie ribbons around candlesticks and candles.

I used a hole punch to punch out two holes to run the ribbon through.

I tried threading the ribbon two ways.
First through the back.

And then through the front (my favorite).

Here’s the pattern I decided on too.

I used a total of nine pumpkins (three of each color).  I put three pumpkins together then made the hole punches. I took one pumpkin with holes and used it as a guide when punching the remaining holes so all the pumpkins would look even.

I wove the ribbon through the pumpkins.

Then the banner was all ready to be hung up!

Here it is!

Well, there you have it, a pretty simple pumpkin banner and I think it looks great!
