These warm and fuzzy fabric pumpkins will keep year after year. Try mixing textures and colors to create a mismatched patch of them.
What you’ll need
- Fake fur, fleece, or other fabric
- Dental floss
- Plastic shopping bag
- Short stick
How to make it
- For each pumpkin, cut a circle from a piece of fake fur, fleece, or other fabric (ours were roughly 8 inches in diameter).
- Thread a needle with dental floss and make a knot several inches from the end (you’ll use this tail to tie the floss together). Make wide stitches around the circle as shown, about a half-inch from the outer edge. Pull the floss to gather the edges, and stuff the resulting pouch with a plastic shopping bag.
- Place a short stick into the hole for a stem, then pull and knot the floss so that the fabric is cinched around the stick.
