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 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 finished off the pumpkin with the wire and a wood knob and LOVE how it turned out.
It's the perfect rustic addition to my fall decor!
