How to make fabric pumpkins:
I actually made these little burlap pumpkins in a LIVE video! You can watch just how easy they are to make in real time below. Along with a bonus tip on how to cut burlap straight.
- Start with a piece of burlap. The size and shape will determine your final pumpkin look. Play with different options.
- Gather up one end around a piece of driftwood that is laying inside of the burlap
- Wrap a rubber band around this end tightly.
- Wrap a rubber band around the opposite end as well (gathered just around itself with no driftwood).
- Turn the entire thing around through the seam putting the rubber bands to the inside and the driftwood to the outside.
- Add as much stuffing as you desire.
- Hot glue the seam closed. Use finger protectors if you have them otherwise be extremely cautious.
- Cut a leaf shape from green burlap and hot glue to the top.
- Move your stuffing around with your hands to get the look you want.
- Your fabric pumpkins are complete and ready for display.
These rustic pumpkins are perfect for your home. Y’all know you want to make a batch to add to your fall decor.
