Easy Upcycled Metal Pumpkin Tutorial with Metal Ribbon
Once I saw this metal ribbon at Hobby Lobby, my first instinct was to post a photo on Instagram and Facebook. I didn’t hesitate to buy a roll and knew almost immediately that I was going to make an upcycled metal pumpkin. I already had the rest of the materials, and I was excited to get started.
Here’s What You Need

There were a few styles, but I chose this one because I wanted the screws to be easy to punch through. I wanted to make a decent sized pumpkin so I cut the ribbon in four two foot long pieces. The ribbon is easy to cut with sharp scissors.
I located the center of each piece and pierced the screw through the metal and secured it with a nut.
I did the same for the top, only with a drawer knob. The metal is easy to shape and maneuver so I bent the tops to shape the sphere I just made into a pumpkin.
Lastly, I cut green burlap ribbon for leaves, and added twine to represent the vines of a pumpkin.
It turned out so cute and fits my industrial décor perfectly!
Now, I want to go back and buy the different ribbon to make some more!
