Fabric Pumpkins Project

Level: Easy

What you'll need:


Step 1 - Cut your fabric into a rectangle based on the size pumpkin you want to make.

Cut fabric size

Approx. Finished pumpkin size



2" high X 4" wide



4" high X 6" wide


10"x 24"

6" high x 8" wide

Step 2- Fold your fabric in half (along the longest side), right sides together, and stitch using a 1/4" seam allowance.

Step 3- Hand stitch a wide basting stitch along the bottom of the tube. Gather the bottom up so it is tightly closed and sew a few stitches to secure the bottom.

Step 4 - Flip the fabric right side out and stuff your pumpkin using hobby fill. Sew a basting stitch along the top and close it the same way as the bottom. Pull the top closed and add a few stitches to secure it.

Step 5 - Wrap the piece of crochet thread or twine around the pumpkin to make 6 or more sections (whatever looks best to you.) Wrap it tightly and tie it off on the bottom.

Tip: You can cover the knots at the bottom by using hot glue to attach a small circle of felt.

Step 6 - Cut a rectangle of aluminum foil that is about twice the height of your cork. Wrap the cork in the foil, and shape the top into a point, you can shape the foil in whatever direction you like. Using hot glue, carefully wrap the foil in jute cord, ensuring you have can't see any of the foil.

Step 7 - Attach the stem to the top of the pumpkin using hot glue.
