1 1/2" to 2" diameter tree branch, cut 4" to 5" in length
Vinyl Dryer Hose
Cut the dryer hose to a length of 2" per pumpkin (stretched out).
Fashion a hook out of a stretched paper clip and hook it into one end of the length of dryer hose.
While stretching out the dryer hose, spray the Pumpkin Orange in several light coats until the hose’s original color is no longer visible. Allow to dry for one hour.
After the hose is completely dry, bring the ends together and affix with the safety wire, clipping the excess off with the wire cutters.
Apply hot glue to the end of the cut tree branch and insert the glued end into the center hole created when the hose ends were put together.
Before the glue sets, add the raffia/excelsior in the glue at the stem base to simulate the vines.

God is eagerly waiting for the chance to answer your prayers and fulfill your dreams, just as he always has. But he can't if you don't pray, and he can't if you don't dream. In short, he can't if you don't believe.” ― Jeffrey R. Holland
Hi there, My name is Gina and I live with my hubby of 27 years this new years eve 2012 and 9 cats and one stinky puppy..I have been crafting for about 25 years on and off...I can't remember how I came across the primitives, but I love them... Love the time worn look and the loved look...Sometimes I think I was born a hundred years too late..although I do love modern conveniences...like having my outhouse in my house if you know what I mean.. I love to decorate, it just tickles me to organize...any way, drop me a line. I love hearing from you all. Thanks for stopping by...:)
Weep not for me though I am gone, Into that gentle night. Grieve if you will, but not for long, Upon my soul's sweet flight. I am at peace, my soul's at rest, There is no need for tears. For with your love I was so blessed For all those many years. There is no pain, I suffer not, The fear now all is gone. Put now these things out of your thoughts, In your memory I live on. Remember not my fight for breath, Remember not the strife, Please do not dwell upon my death, But celebrate my life. Author Constance Jenkins
