DIY Clothesline Pumpkin

Fall is one of my favorite seasons to decorate for, and this year we’re going with a farmhouse look. So when I saw this DIY Clothespin Pumpkin, I knew it would fit in with my vision. You won’t believe what this is made of…a Dollar Tree plastic Pineapple. I love when I can reuse an item to create a beautiful piece to display.

Fall is such a beautiful time as well–and not only do you get cozy sweaters (which always makes me happy), hot chocolate bombs, and of course inspiring Fall crafts like making decorative pumpkins out of dollar tree items.


Tips for Making a Clothesline Pumpkin

Making sure you have something to catch any possible spills is the best way to avoid a mess and save yourself from messy clean-up. A good idea is keeping an area clear, even if it’s just by putting down newspapers or sheets of paper towel before starting your project so that glue doesn’t get everywhere.

Clothesline pumpkins are the perfect project for your next crafting adventure. These unique creations are made from a plastic pineapple found at any dollar store, so grab them before they’re gone! For a bonus this time of year, look around and see if other items might work well with fall crafts, too – you never know what will turn up!

Keep items you think you might need later- like wine corks. My house is always stocked with wine corks since we drink it so often! I have them in a storage bag for when the time comes that they’ll be useful.

Active Time 15 minutes
Total Time 15 minutes
Difficulty Easy
Estimated Cost $4


  • Dollar Tree Pineapple décor
  • Clothesline
  • Wine Cork
  • Raffia


  • Hot Glue Gun and Glue
  • Scissors


  1. Start by unwrapping the gold tinsel from around the pineapple. The top section will just pop off.
  2. Next add a thin line of hot glue to the bottom edge of the pineapple and add the clothesline on top. Repeat this process until you reach the top of the pineapple (I didn’t have to glue around every time, just when I was going around one of the green edges
  3. Once you reach the top, add hot glue to the inner side of the clothesline to form the top section. You just need to leave enough space for the wine cork to fit, and then trim once you reach this point
  4. I added a little bit of hot glue to the wine cork to make sure that it securely stayed inside the top of the pumpkin.
  5. I took 2 pieces of raffia and tied them into a bow around the wine cork at top of the pumpkin!
