Yellow DIY Fabric Pumpkin

Hey there! In this post I'm going to show you how to make a fabric pumpkin using a Dollar Tree pumpkin and precut fabric. It makes a perfect fall room decoration for your room.

This pumpkin DIY is also budget friendly. You can probably make this under $10.

If you need a video tutorial, this fabric pumpkin is the first DIY to show up in the video below or you can keep on reading.

You'll need:

a Dollar Tree carvable pumpkin
Fake leaves
Precut fabric or you can cut it yourself ( 18 x 22 inches)
Hot Glue

1. You want to start of by pulling out the stem of the pumpkin and you want to paint it brown.

After you're done painting the stem, you can stick the toothpick that's on the stem into the pumpkin just a little so it can dry.

2. Before you put the fabric in the hole where the stem used to be, you want to make the hole larger with scissors or you can just use your finger by pushing the foam into the inside.

3. Then you can lay out your fabric and put the edges of the fabric in the hole. You can either cut the fabric yourself of you can use precut fabric. The size of fabric I used was 18 x 22 inches.

4. If you need help putting the fabric inside of the hole, you can use the eraser side of a pencil or something that's thin enough to fit to help push the fabric through.

5. When you're done you can take a fake leaf and glue it on.

6. To finish off your pumpkin, you want to glue on the stem and you're all done.

That's how you make a fabric wrapped pumpkin from a Dollar Tree pumpkin.

I think it turned out looking really cute and the leaf I added made it perfect. What do you think about this pumpkin?
