Have you ever wondered how to make fabric pumpkins? I have seen many different ones in the stores, and I wanted to try to make my own. The boys were really interested in this craft, and they were able to help with most everything. Obviously the sharp knife cutting should be left to adults or older children, but everything else is totally doable for little ones.
There is NOTHING in the world I love more than pumpkin decor. (ok, maybe that’s a slight exaggeration…) But really, when I see pumpkins at the store, I want to buy them ALL. I love to carve pumpkins, eat pumpkins, and decorate pumpkins. I also do enjoy pumpkin spice, pumpkin recipes, and putting my babies in huge pumpkins, it’s true! And these pumpkin cupcakes? yes please!
Here is one of my favorite pictures of our youngest baby with a big ol’ beautiful pumpkin, that is on display year round in our house:
I am, of course, a sucker for a good pumpkin craft so I did a little thinking and shopping and came up with these super cute DIY Fabric Pumpkins. I made them both in less than an hour, and the kids were able to help out a little, and really, the oldest could do this entire craft by himself, you know, if he were patient and stuff.
I chose to add jute to highlight the creases in the pumpkin, but they still look pretty cute without it.
The cinnamon stick as the stem was the icing on the cake. The boys thought this was too cool and had to help with this part.
Here’s another cute pumpkin craft for kids!
