What You Will Need

  • sweater sleeve
  • rubber bands
  • embroidery thread
  • needle
  • button
  • stuffing


  • Cut your sweater sleeve into three pieces. Or two if you want to make bigger pumpkins. The pieces can be any size that you would like.
  • Turn your piece inside out and put a rubber band tightly on each end. Cut a small slit near the seam of the sweater arm.
  • Turn the piece right side out through that slit you just cut and stuff it until it's full.
  • Hot glue that seam closed. Yep hot glue. I promise it will work. Then take a needle and embroidery thread and go all the way through the pumpkin through the center.
  • Keep going around the pumpkin and through the middle about 5 times in 5 different places. Pull tight each time. This makes it look all pumpkin-like. Tie off your thread and I added a bead at the top with hot glue as my stem. You can use anything you like as a stem for your sweater sleeve pumpkins.
