Easy DIY Fabric Pumpkins

These easy fabric pumpkins are the perfect thing for a rustic fall tablescape. They are super easy to put together and can be made out of scrap fabric. I think velvet would be gorgeous and would definitely up the fancy factor!

I used some scrap fabric, a vintage handkerchief and a dinner napkin for my pumpkins. To tie them together I used coordinating yarn but I think ribbon, twine or even raffia would work well and look great too.

Supplies

  • Fabric
  • Coordinating thread
  • Sewing needle
  • Fiber fill for the stuffing
  • Yarn
  • Small twigs
  • Leaves (or leaf shapes cut from felt)
  • Hot glue gun

Cut your fabric to the size you want and fold the right sides together. Stitch up one side. You can use your sewing machine for this, but I just stitched it by hand using a running stitch.

At one open end, gather the fabric together and tie it tightly with a piece of yarn or string.  Trim the excess yarn.  Once it's secure turn it right side out. It should resemble a little bag.

Stuff the “bag” with fiber fill. You want it to be pretty full with stuffing so that it bulges a little bit when you wrap the yarn around it.  This is what creates the pumpkin look!

Using a running stitch, stitch the top closed. Pull the string tight to gather the fabric together at the top but leave a little hole – this is where the stem will be placed.  Tuck the top flap of fabric inside. Tie a knot to secure the stitch.

Take a piece of yarn that is long enough to wrap around the pumpkin a total of 3 times. Wrap it around once and tie it tightly at the top.

Repeat this step 2 more times.

To attache the stem, use a small twig and stick it down into the opening you left at the top. Use a dab of hot glue to secure it in place. Use hot glue to attach some leaves to the top or simply tie some raffia around the stem.
