Fabric Pumpkins

I love this time of year..mostly because of the decorations! These pumpkins are easy to make:
  • 1 yard fabric can make at least 2 medium sized pumpkins
  • 2-3 yards ribbon
  • 2 or more felt leaves, add glitter (opt)
  • 4 or so inch stick, painted dark brown & glitter (opt)
  • 2 or more bags of beans
  • hot glue gun, glue
  • needle and thread

For a small pumpkin, cut just over the size of a dinner plate, add 4 inches for next size up, etc. add your beans to desired fill for your stuffing. place stick and base stitch at the top, then pull once everything is in place. Use hot glue to secure fabric to the stick. Add ribbon around and hot glue to the stick. add the leaves at the base of the stick and tie ribbon and make a bow around the stems of the leaves and hot glue that to the stick. I used scissors to make the ribbon curl.
