- Hanger Strap. This is found in the plumbing department. You can get different lengths and either stainless or copper plated. I think the copper plated helps add to the "pumpkin" look. I bought 2 10 ft lenghts, one in silver and one in copper, and was able to made 3 pumpkins.
- 1/4" diameter Carriage Screws (one for each pumpkin. I used 6", 5 1/2", and 5" lengths)
- 2 nuts for each pumpkin (make sure they will fit the carriage screws)
- Tin Snips
- Needle nose pliers (not shown)
*Note: the hanger strap has two hole sizes in it. The larger size is the 1/4" hole that we'll be using. Be sure to plan on that hole when making measurements/cutting.*
*Another Note: the metal can be sharp when cut so you may want to wear gloves. Either way, be careful!*
Screw a nut onto the bolt to about 1 inch from the top. That top part will be the stem of the pumpkin.
Thread the ends of each strap though the bolt but only push it up about 1/2".
