Simple Fall Cotton Pumpkin / This simple fall cotton pumpkin is so easy to make you’ll want to make several to add to your fall decor – great for vignettes!
Pumpkins come in all shapes and sizes… my favorites are the imperfect squatty ones.
I tend to keep things simple when decorating for fall even though it is my favorite time of year. I like simple touches placed here and there throughout the house. These cute little pumpkins fit right in. I made this one out of cotton ecru, and I love how it turned out. I may make a few more using different kinds of fabric – burlap, linen, velvet, even drop cloth would work. You probably already have fabric you can use to make one.
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own Simple Fall Cotton Pumpkin:
- fabric (I used an ecru 18 in. x 21 in. Waverly fat quarter from Walmart.)
- polyester filling (I used Poly-fil.)
- embroidery thread
- long craft needle
- glue gun
- glue stick
Lay your fabric out flat. Put a couple handfuls of filling in the center and gather the fabric up around the filling and tie tight with a piece of the embroidery thread. Thread the long craft needle with ample thread, and tie a knot with both ends of the embroidery thread so that your thread will be doubled.
I love it’s perfectly imperfect shape…
…and all the layers that make up the stem. You can make any size pumpkin you want by simply using a larger or smaller piece of fabric. Happy pumpkin making, friends!
