Easy DIY Fabric Pumpkins

Fall is finally here, and it got me in the mood to make some of my own fall decor! I decided to make some cute fabric pumpkins and they took me about 10 minutes to make, that’s it! Here’s what you’ll need

DIY Fabric Pumpkins

Craft Supplies Needed

  • fabric – I used muslin
  • needle and thread, preferably a color that matches the fabric
  • scissors
  • twine – I used cooking twine
  • cinnamon stick
  • cardstock paper
  • stuffing
  • glue or hot glue
  1. Cut a circle in your fabric, whatever size you’d like. I’d cut out a circle bigger than you think you’ll need, you’d be surprised how much smaller they turn out!
  2. Tie a knot in your thread and make a running stitch around the outside of the fabric. (You’ll end up making a “purse string” stitch.)
  3. Pull halfway closed and put the stuffing in the fabric and pull closed. Make sure to pack the stuffing in tight so that your pumpkin is a good, consistent shape. When you’re happy with the shape, tie a knot in the top and trim the thread.
  1. Take your twine and place across the base of the pumpkin. Make a little stitch to secure the string onto the bottom of the pumpkin. This will make it easier to criss cross the twine so that it stays in place.
  2. Act like you’re tying a present and cross the twine 3 times as pictured and secure with a knot.
  3. Place the cinnamon stitch in the top of the pumpkin.
  4. Cut a few strips of card stock and curl around a pencil. Secure to the top of the pumpkin with hot glue.

I hope you enjoy this quick and easy fall decorating craft! I styled these pumpkins with some fresh pine and a fall scented candle on our dining room table. 🙂
