Let's Do This!


Step 1:

  • A) Cut a large square out of your tablecloth. Our recommended size is no smaller then twelve inches. 
  • B) Fold the square into quarters and cut in a curve from one corner to the opposite. Be sure to keep the folded edges in tack. 
  • C) Open up the fabric to reveal a circle!

Step 2:

  • A) Turn your fabric upside down. 
  • B) Begin to loosely stitch around the edge of the entire circle with the needle and thread.
  • C) Fill the inside with loose poly-fil.
  • D) Pull the thread tight and close up the center of the pumpkin. Tie a knot at the base of the thread to keep the stitches together.

Step 3:

  • A) Grab a small branch or twig from outside and hot glue into the center of the pumpkin. 
  • B) Using the Jute, tie a knot around the bottom of the stem and hot glue the loose edge down. 
  • C) Begin to wrap the jute around the fabric and create the natural sections that a pumpkin forms.
  • D) Hot glue the end of the twine to the bottom of the stem

Step 4:

  • A) Twist the Jute and Beading Wire together.
  • B) Add to the stem but tying a knot, a little off center.
  • C) Wrap the Wired Jute around a pen or pencil. Remove the pen to reveal a coiled decoration!
  • D) Spread out the coils and place how you would like.

Step 5: 

  • Hot Glue a leaf to the base of the stem and put on display!
