- Yarn Needle
- Stem, I used sticks I cut from a grapevine wreath
- Embellishments, I used Fall floral that I previously got from Michael’s
I love making pumpkins and this one was so much fun!
First I cut out a circle from the burlap. The circle doesn’t have to be perfect. I used twine to sew the burlap. A yarn needle is good to use when sewing with twine.
I did a basic stitch around the whole border of the circle. Make sure to leave a tail at the beginning of the stitch and at the end.
To close the pumpkin gently pull on the twine tails. When the hole is still opened some add stuffing to the pumpkin. You can make it as plump as you would like.
Once your pumpkin is stuffed you can tie the pumpkin closed. Make sure to tie it pretty tight.
Then you can add a stem and embellishments to your pumpkin! I cut some twigs from a grapevine wreath to make my stem. I wrapped wire around the bottom of the sticks to hold them together. Then I added leaves and Fall flowers to the pumpkin.
I hope you give this a try! Comment below with your favorite pumpkin crafts!
