Craft Project - Quick & Easy No-Sew Pumpkin for Fall

Last Fall we made several of these Quick and Easy No-Sew fabric pumpkins and used them in our Fall & Halloween decorating here around our home. You can basically make these fabric pumpkins any size that you would like...which is how I made them!

You can use your new pumpkins to decorate for Fall, Halloween and Thanksgiving!

No-Sew Fabric Pumpkins for Fall

orange cotton fabric
poly-fiberfill stuffing
3 to 4 artificial green leaves
raffia (looks like straw)
1/4" diameter by 2" long twig
hot glue and hot glue gun
dinner & dessert plates (for circle templates)
sharp fabric scissors

I used various sized dinner and dessert plates to make my circle templates. I simply traced around them directly onto my orange cotton fabric and then cut the circles out using sharp fabric scissors. Take one circle and place a handful or two of stuffing into the center of it. Using your hands, gather up the edges to close it up and tack it down with hot glue. (You may want to use a needle and thread and just hand-gather it up if you find it too difficult to do it the way I explained above). Before the glue is dry, shove your twig down the center and add more hot glue to secure it. Once you have it glued shut, use your hands to move the stuffing around until it resembles a pumpkin with a semi-flat bottom. Use your hot glue gun to glue on 3 or 4 artificial green leaves (around the twig stem) and let dry. Cut the raffia into 6" and 8" long pieces and tie a few of them around the twig stem to resemble straw.
