Fabric Pumpkins

Level of difficulty: Beginner

Dress up your front porch with cozy and festive decorations!

Let’s Do This!

Step 1:
A) Cut a large square out of your tablecloth. Our recommended size is no smaller then twelve inches. B) Fold the square into quarters and cut in a curve from one corner to the opposite. Be sure to keep the folded edges in tack. C) Open up the fabric to reveal a circle!
Step 2:
A) Turn your fabric upside down. B) Begin to loosely stitch around the edge of the entire circle with the needle and thread. C) Fill the inside with loose poly-fil. D) Pull the thread tight and close up the center of the pumpkin. Tie a knot at the base of the thread to keep the stitches together.
Step 3:
A) Grab a small branch or twig from outside and hot glue into the center of the pumpkin. B) Using the Jute, tie a knot around the bottom of the stem and hot glue the loose edge down. C) Begin to wrap the jute around the fabric and create the natural sections that a pumpkin forms. D) Hot glue the end of the twine to the bottom of the stem.
Step 4:
A) Twist the Jute and Beading Wire together. B) Add to the stem but tying a knot, a little off center. C) Wrap the Wired Jute around a pen or pencil. Remove the pen to reveal a coiled decoration! D) Spread out the coils and place how you would like.
Step 5:
Hot Glue a leaf to the base of the stem and put on display!
