Fall Pumpkin Wreath

My front door has been in need of some new fall cheer. I fell in love with this fabric and Joann’s and had to make something fallish. I love this soft back pumpkin wreath. It does require sewing, but it is pretty easy!

Here is what you will need:

  • 1/4 a yard of three different coordinating fabrics and 3/4 a yard of another coordinating fabric
  • scrap fabric for stem
  • stuffing
  • burlap
  • jute
  • yarn
  • newspaper for pattern making

Start by creating your pattern. I used a big round pillow to make the edges. Start and trace one of the sides and then do the other side. I wanted mine not completely round, so I spread out the sides a little bit. Then draw two seams down the middle.

Just have fun with it. You don’t have to be an artist to make it look good. It sometimes helps to look at a real pumpkin.

Cut out the pattern and pin to the fabric (the piece that is 3/4 a yard). Cut out the back of the pumpkin.

Pin the sections together in the order that they were when you drew the pumpkin. I numbered mine so I wouldn’t get confused.

Sew the sections together using a straight stitch on the back side, so the seams aren’t on the front.

Start stuffing the pumpkin. Each section will be stuffed and then sewn. When the stuffing is all packed into the first section, pin it to sew on the seam.

The pumpkin is finished. Now on to the burlap banner. I cut 2 x 3 inch rectangles (folded in half, should measure to the 2 x3). Use a stencil or cut one out on your cutting machine and dab on paint.
