Today’s project starts with a few cheap fabric pumpkins and some fun embellishment items!
Am I the only person that cuts off my pumpkin stems at the end of the season and saves them?? Actually I JUST discovered there are dried stems you can buy off Etsy. You could also use a spindle, branch or cinnamon stick for a stem.
To begin, I used my heat gun to soften the glue around the pumpkin stem. Using a light touch, I pushed and pulled the stem side ways to loosen it from the cloth. As you can see, the stems had barbs on them so I slowed twisted and pulled it out as to not make a large opening.
You should be left with a small hole like the one shown in the picture below.
For the next step, I used this burlap trim from the dollar tree. I did need two packages to complete each pumpkin, so it may be cheaper to purchase elsewhere by the yard.
To add the burlap trim, start in the center gluing and apply the trim. You could also use rope, lace ribbon, jute or whatever you like.
Continue adding the trim to the pumpkin until all the creases are covered.
Next, apply the stem of your choice using some hot glue.
Make sure the hole in the top of the pumpkin is completely covered.
Time to embellish!
I actually had big plans to do all kinds of stuff, but then decided less is more…LOL!!
To create the leaf embellishment, I first added some watered down Voodoo Gel Stain and let it dry.
Then I used this cute leaf transfer and Orange Peel Chalkology Paste to add some fun details. Once it was dry, I tied ribbon and twine around the pumpkin’s stem, added a button and glued on the leaf to finish the look.
For the other pumpkin, I simply glued the “Hello Fall” cutout to the pumpkin using some hot glue.
As you can see, fabric pumpkins are a great way to add a personal touch to all of your décor this fall!
