Felt Pumpkin Tutorial!!

Here’s another quick and easy craft to bring Autumn “in”!
You will need:
Wool felt in orange and green
(I suggest using wool felt because it outlasts cheap felt, is heavier and just lovely to work with)!
stuffing
small twigs
embroidery floss in orange
glue gun and glue sticks
To start trace some circles onto your orange felt…I used a small bowl, a cup and a lotion container, so I’d have 3 different sizes.

Get a very long strand of embroidery floss…now start doing a running stitch all the way around the outside edge of your circle…

Pull the thread tight…

and stuff…stuff until you can stuff no more!

Now stitch it shut, (not all the way, but as tightly as you can…like so)
Take your needle and put it through the “top” part of your pumpkin, now bring it out in the bottom, near the middle…this will create the look of “sections” on your pumpkin…tie off your thread.
Cut out some leaves out of your green felt…and cut some short lengths of your twig.
Now fire up the glue gun and glue the twig in place…put some glue all over the bottom of the twig and stuff it into the “top” of the pumpkin as far as it will go.
Glue on your leaves…press them down around the exposed top of your pumpkin…and there you have it!
These are super quick to whip up and just look SO darn cute on the nature table!
I think I’m going to have to make a little pumpkin gnome to tend our ever growing patch!
