They are so fun to make and they can be customized to your heart’s content! You can make them any color or size you’d like and they can be embellished in so many cute ways.

You only need a few supplies to create these fabric pumpkins, and most everything you need you probably already have on hand! If you’re intimidated by the stitching, don’t be. It is so simple and I promise you can do it even if you’ve never threaded a needle! Here are the supplies I used for my fabric pumpkin, but know you can use whatever you have. Be creative and have fun with this fall craft!

DIY Fabric Pumpkin Supplies Needed:

  • Fabric
  • Poly Fil
  • Stem (Branch, Spindle, Old Spoon)
  • Brown Gauze
  • Piece of Lace
  • Button
  • Hem Tape or Ribbon
  • Book Page for Leaf
  • Hot Glue Gun & Glue
  • Needle and Thread

How To Create a Fabric Pumpkin in 5 Simple Steps:

Step 1:

Lay your fabric out flat, trace around a circular object, and then cut out your circle.

Step 2:

Thread your needle and tie a knot on the end of your thread. Stitch around the diameter of the pumpkin. Push your needle down through your fabric and then come up through the fabric leaving about an inch gap in between. Leave a “tail” where you started stitching so your thread doesn’t pull through. When you’ve gone all the way around, hold onto both ends of the thread and start to stuff your pumpkin full of the Poly Fil.

Step 3:

Once you have a good amount of Poly Fil in your pumpkin, go ahead and tie your two ends of thread. Knot it several times.

Step 4:

Gather your gauze and stem, and hot glue it into the hole on top of your pumpkin.

Step 5:

Embellish around your stem with ribbon, button, and paper leaf.
