Subject: (!)Idea: Beaded pumpkin
orange tri-beads,6 orange pipe cleaners,1 green pipe cleaner,green leaf beads (or just green beads)
Place the six pipe cleaners together and twist in the middle. Then spread out all the spokes flat on the table surface like a star (*). Place 15-20 orange beads on each strand of the pipe cleaner. Gather all the "spokes" together to form the rounded pumpkin and twist the pipe cleaners together at the top to form the stem of the pumpkin. Bend over the stem as shown in the picture. Take the green pipe cleaner and twist around the stem. thread several green leaf beads on and use a pencil to "curl" the pipe cleaner. These make great decorations and great gifts for parents or teachers. Have fun!

Thanks so much for sharing. I LOVE the beaded crafts. I have some health problems and when I am not able to tackle sewing or some things, I can handle the beads easier. I am not a great fan of the beady buddies and like this type of craft that you have posted. Besides, I especially love the sparkle of beaded crafts.
Thanks again. Huggies,
