I know that I haven’t posted any sewing tutorials lately. In reality, I usually only sew when I absolutely need something that I know I can make a whole lot cheaper than buy outright. In the works are a new set of curtain panels for our living room, but I’m not ready quite yet to start them!

In the meantime, I wanted to share a fun craft for Fall that uses fabric (oh how I’ve missed you!) but doesn’t require any sewing, just a hot glue gun!

Making these cute fabric pumpkins is a fun way to add DIY fall decor to your home

 

How to Make DIY Fabric Pumpkins

These little pumpkins are the cutest way to craft and decorate your home! Choose your fabric choices based on your own tastes.

Supplies Needed for Fabric Pumpkins

  • Wood Board (We used this one)
  • ¼ Yard Fabric in 2 Different Colors
  • Craft Paint
  • Hot Glue
  • Wood (or small sturdy board)
  • Thin Wire

These plain white wood boards will be the base for your fabric pumpkins

This simple fall fabric is perfect for making this fabric pumpkin craft

 

 

Paint Your Board

Using craft paint, coat your wood plaque/board with 2 coats of paint. I chose a light color so that my orange pumpkin would ‘pop’ against it. Let it dry.

Roll the fabric into a rope-like cord to create the fabric pumpkin shape

Use a scissors and some hot glue to secure the end of the fabric to the wood board

 

 

Twist Your Pumpkin Fabric

Cut your fabric about 2.5-3 inches wide and 42” long (the full width of the bolt). Take a piece of painter’s tape or masking tape and tape one end of the fabric to your table.

Slowly twist your fabric to create the rolls. Repeat for the entire length of the fabric.

Starting in the center of your board, hot glue the open (non-taped) end of your fabric to wood board. Twist the fabric in a circle. Once you have 2-3 rotations, trim the fabric and hot glue the end to the wood board.

Repeat for the second fabric. Complete your pumpkin by gluing 1-2 rotations of your first fabric and you’ve finished your pumpkin!

Twist the fabric around and around, making a fabric pumpkin shape

Making the Stem

We used a leftover piece of MDF, but a sturdy material will work. Cut out a stem shape. Paint it brown with craft paint. Allow to Dry. Hot glue the stem on top of your fabric pumpkin.

Use a simple wire to create the stem for your fabric pumpkin

Adding the Wire

Using thin wire, twist it in a coil with pliers. Snip it to size. Tuck one end into the fabric and hot glue into place.

This adorable fabric pumpkin looks great along with other rustic Fall decor in your home.

If you wanted the wood boards to stand on their own, you could glue a little wood dowel on the back. Right now, mine are officially “leaners.” I like the option of being able to tuck them anywhere in the house.

These fun little pumpkins are a great way to add decor anywhere in the house. I think they’ll look great in your home too!

  1. This is such a cute idea! I think we’ll do this as a church activity. The link for the boards is not active anymore. What’s the size of the boards?
