October so much to love here on the East Coast of Canada! Happy to be sharing with some favourite peeps from the Creative Crafts Edition-Fall Decor Crafts! You can never have enough pumpkins, create a whole patch of these DIY Fast and Easy Felt Pumpkins! I went with a traditional colour palette for the kitchen brick fireplace however felt comes in a rainbow of colurs and so can pumpkins!

You will need:

  • 12″ x 18” craft cut Kunin Premiumfelt™: 1 Copper Canyon
  • 9″ x 12” craft cuts Kunin Classicfelt™: 1 Olive Green, 1 Sandstone, 1 Copper Canyon, 1 Orange
  • 8 oz. Fairfield World Poly-fil stuffing
  • Fabri-tac or Felt Glue by Beacon 
  • 1 skein Orange cotton floss
  • Pencil, ruler, scissors, embroidery needle, 8″ , 2″ circle template.

TIP: Create pumpkins in a variety of sizes using different circle templates.

STEP ONE 

Cut one 8″ and one 2″ circle from orange felt. Cut two 1 1/2″” oval leaves from olive and a 1 1/2″ by 4″ piece from the classic copper canyon piece.

STEP TWO

With the floss stitch around the outside edge of the large circle. Pull stitches tight leaving a 1 1/2″ opening. Stuff. Glue 2″ circle over opening. This is the bottom of the pumpkin.

STEP THREE

Stitch floss to center bottom of pumpkin. Bring floss over one side of pumpkin to center top. Stitch through center top and continue to bottom of pumpkin again pulling stitches to make an indentation. Repeat dividing the pumpkin into eight different sections. Secure floss at bottom.

STEP FOUR

Add leaves. Optional: add wire vine by rolling piece of wire around a pencil.

STEP FIVE

To make the tall pumpkin roll the premium copper canyon piece into a cylinder overlapping ends. Glue. Sew around edge of both bottom and top of cylinder. Pull stitches tight at bottom. Stuff and then pull the stitches tight at top. Repeat Step 3.

STEP SIX

Cut two 2″ leaves from olive and a 1 1/2″ by 4″ stem from sandstone. Glue stem to center. Glue center of leaves pinching shut. Glue leaves to stem.
