How to make an Easy Dollar Store Macrame Pumpkin Wrap for Halloween

First you’ll want to start the loop.  Do this by cutting a long piece of string, the length will depend on the size of your pumpkin.  You basically need it to go around the top of your pumpkin stump.

Next, cut a few strings to use as the knots. Be sure they are doubled.  You need to add each one to the original length of string in step one.  A simple loop is all thats needed to secure your string to the main loop.

Once all of the strings are attached to the circle, you can tie the original length together to form a circle.

Lay your circle on the table and begin making your square knots. We will use a simple square knot for this project.  You may find it easier to work on the table or perhaps directly on the pumpkin. For a detailed tutorial, click HERE.

You’ll need to complete at least three rows of knots, more if your pumpkin is bigger. This craft looks best if the knots cover at least half of the pumpkin and the tassels reach the table top. When finished the knots, tie off your ends to ensure the knots do not unravel. Then separate the tassels to make them ‘puff’.

Voila!

*Optional* You can use your hot glue gun to attach it to the top of your foam/real pumpkin. This will keep it secure to the pumpkin, so it won’t slide around. I however did not choose to secure mine, as it sat perfectly on top of the pumpkin!
