How to make an awesome rope pumpkin with Bowdabra bows

Have I got a cool way of making an adorable rope pumpkin using the Bowdabra! This delightful, decorative rope pumpkin is made using sisal rope wrapped around the Bowdabra tower into circles tied together and glued to a stem. Accent it with large poofy bows! What a fun and easy way to decorate for Fall, Halloween, and Thanksgiving!

How to make an easy rope pumpkin

Materials:
Here’s How:

First, insert an 18″ piece of bow wire folded in half into the Bowdabra, tucking ends under. Unroll one end of the rope and begin coiling it around the Bowdabra tower.

Continue coiling the rope on top of each other five times.

Cut the end of the rope with craft scissors and remove it from the Bowdabra tower.

Secure the rope circle by tightly tying a piece of bow wire around the rope. Repeat the steps to create four more rope coils.

Place a blob of hot glue against the back of the tied coils and secure them to the stem.

Repeat for all the rope coils to create a pumpkin shape around the stem.

Uncoil about 36″ of sisal rope and  .  .  .

wrap one section around the glued rope coils and stem. Secure with hot glue.

To Make the Bow

Insert an 18″ piece of bow wire folded in half into the Bowdabra, tucking ends under.  Take a 10″ strip of ribbon and pinch the ribbon strip in the middle and insert it down into the Mini Bowdabra for the bow tails.  Dovetail the ends by folding the ends together and cutting at an angle from the fold down to the opposite end.

Leaving the ribbon on the roll, pinch one end and place it down into the Bowdabra. Make a 4″ loop by folding and twisting the ribbon down into the Bowdabra.

Repeat folding and twisting the ribbon down into the Bowdabra to make a 4″ loop on the opposite side.

Continue making two more loops on either side for a total of four, 4″ loops.  Make a button loop to cover the bow wire, cutting off the excess ribbon.  Scrunch the ribbon down with the Bowdabra wand.

While the bow is still in the Bowdabra, thread the loose ends of the bow wire through the loop and pull tight while gently pulling the bow out. Make a second bow following the same steps as the first bow.

Fluff and attach the bows on opposite sides of the stem using hot glue. A classy-looking centerpiece to add to your fall decor!
