French Stamp Fabric Pumpkins

How to Make Fabric Pumpkins – the easy – peasy – way!

How to make fabric pumpkins a delightsome life It takes about 75 to 100 frost free days to grow a pumpkin. In an afternoon you can have a patch full of fabric pumpkins to decorate with year after year! The choices of fabric are extensive – you can use burlap, silk, cotton duck, linen and more. Today I’m sharing how I made these French Stamp Fabric Pumpkins for my dining room. I know I’ll make many more….

Cute as Pie

Versatile Autumn Decor

You can cluster them together, set them among other autumn decor or use them in a vignette or tabletop arrangement…the limit is your imagination! Actually, I was at a crossroad as to how I’d use these – I may keep changing my mind from time to time! versatile fabric pumpkins a delightsome life

  15. These are beautiful! I love fall decor in neutral colors – it’s so elegant! I actually shared some fabric pumpkins on my blog made from ticking stripe and drop cloth fabric, but I may have to add these to the mix. Thanks for sharing! Pinning! Here’s a link to my pumpkins if you’d like to see them 🙂

    Pieced Pastimes

  21. These are just beautiful !
    Thanks so much for sharing and for such a great tutorial !

  22. Kathy, they are so pretty and look great in your dining room! Thank you for sharing. You are one of the features today at the Make it Pretty Monday party at The Dedicated House. Here is the link to the party. Hope to see you again at the bash! Toodles, Kathryn @TheDedicatedHouse

  23. These are super cute! I love the fact that you chose fabric that is not typically used for Halloween decor. Thank you for sharing the tutorial.

  24. Tesa Jordan says:

    First of all, these are adorable. I saw them done in burlap too.. if you don’t have batting on hand, you could use packing peanuts to fill the burlap pumpkins. I always save them for things like this! could even use old blue jeans instead of burlap and they’re already sewn into a tube for you if you use the legs! 🙂

    • Great idea, Tesa! I’ve used everything from old pillow stuffing, feathers to brown bags(for burlap coffee sacks!) Such fun!

  25. These little pumpkins are so sweet Kathy. I wish we did fall here in Australia…. I’d be making these for sure. Thanks for your link ups at Shabbilicious Friday this week. I’m delighted to be featuring this project at tomorrow’s party.
    Hugs ~ Kerryanne
