How to Make a DIY Dryer Vent Pumpkin

When I saw these on Pinterest, I had to try this project and show you ho to make a DIY dryer vent pumpkin.

I have to tell you this was way easier then I expected it to be.

Can I say I am slightly obsessed with this Fall DIY?

These ducts come in multiple sizes, so you can vary your size of pumpkins.

Let’s Get Crafting

The first thing you want to do is remove the dryer duct from box, and cut it down to size for each pumpkin.

I recommend 24-25″ this will give you enough length to create a pumpkin.

You can use regular scissors and you will need wire cutters to get through the metal wire.

I was able to get 3 pumpkins out of the 8 ft. duct.

Glue the Seams

Now it is time to hot glue the ends. Make sure you put a good amount of glue on each end of the duct.

Be careful not to burn yourself, I learned the hard way.

Hold the ends together, and go back and add glue to seams where needed.

Time to Spray Paint

Be sure to go to a well ventilated space before spraying your pumpkin.

I sprayed two coats on the top of the pumpkin, one on the bottom.

Decorating the Pumpkins

You can use moss or dried flowers for this part of the DIY.

I decided to go with the florals because I just wanted a little more texture.

We happen to have three different kinds of florals on hand for another upcoming DIY, so I just used one for each pumpkin.

You can place the stem first then build the florals around it, or vice-versa.

Just use hot glue to secure stem, then glue as needed to the florals or moss.
