Dryer Hose = Pumpkin

I'm a practical girl. 

I like giving gifts that have a purpose. I like turning everyday items into something unique. 

For example, crafting a dryer hose into a pumpkin. Yes, you read that right! 

I first saw the craft at House of Hepworths. {Click the link for a tutorial.} I was blown away at how an everyday, boring item could be turned into something cute. And that smells good! I didn't think I'd follow through with it because, as Allison pointed out, dryer hoses aren't cheap. 


I saw a used dryer hose in our utility room. It must be a sign! I hit Hobby Lobby to buy the rest of the supplies. And TADA! My pumpkins. I was able to eek out two pumpkins with the hose. Thank you, Jared, for never throwing anything away. ;)

  1. Love the cinnamon sticks for a stem. Makes it smell yummier than a pumpkin.
