Rustic Painted Fabric Pumpkins {Home For Fall Blog Hop}

Rustic fabric painted pumpkins

I'm so excited for today's post, not only because I LOVE how these little painted fabric pumpkins turned out, but because I'm partnering with an amazing group of talented bloggers to bring you Home for Fall!
Make sure to stick around and check out all the creative fall projects linked up at the bottom of the post. It's gonna be an explosion of fall inspiration!

Fall is probably my favorite time to DIY seasonal projects for our home.  I'm pretty sure I could make pumpkins all day long and never get tired of them.   I tend to gravitate towards wood projects, but this time I decided to try something different.  


I recently went to a vintage market and was inspired by fabric pumpkins they were selling.  I knew I could make them myself and the fact that I had all the supplies at home made this project a no brainer.  

I gathered my supplies then used a trash can lid as a template to trace a large circle onto my fabric.

Using extra thick thread I roughly stitched around the edge of the fabric.

I pulled it tight, stuffed it with ploy fill then tied it closed.

I wrapped more thread around the entire pumpkin to divide the fabric into sections.

I then tied the thread off at the top and stuffed the fabric into the opening.

I used white chalk to roughly paint the pumpkin, leaving the crevices untouched.

I was originally going to use a piece of stick and twine wrapped wire to embellish the pumpkin, but then a happy accident happened.  The twine started unraveling and I noticed the wire underneath was perfectly aged and rustic.

I cut two pieces, unwrapped the twine then wrapped the metal around a pen to make it curly.

I finished off the pumpkin with the wire and a wood knob and LOVE how it turned out.

  1. I love this little fabric pumpkin! You make it sound so simple, even me, who doesn't really sew can probably manage this one! I am pinning this and sharing this over at Twitter and FB! I would love it if you would stop by and share it over at Celebrate it Sunday. The party is open now and stays open until Friday!
