Sometimes I get so incredibly tired of the same colors used for every holiday and season. So, this year I am going with cream, blue, green and gold. Probably not very fall seasonal, but it makes me happy so I’m going with it. Today I am sharing how to create this lovely Felt Pumpkin.
In going with my non.traditional colors this fall, I wanted a non.traditional pumpkin. I got the crazy idea of making a Felt Pumpkin. I felt like I had seen about every pumpkin out there but not many felt flowered ones. I realized afterwards, there is a reason… they. take. a. long. time.
I went to my local Hobby Lobby store and bought eight sheets of cream, four sheets of gray and four sheets of white felt. Also a lovely faux pumpkin. I already had scissors and a hot glue gun on hand.
After some playing around, I decided to go with an all cream color pumpkin and had to run out for more cream felt. In total, I used about twelve sheets.
I started at the top of the pumpkin and slowly, slowly, slowly worked my way down.
Even doing a few rows of the felt flowers looked stunning.
And finally completion!
Here it is sitting on my kiddo’s chalkboard desks.
Where would you put your felt flower pumpkin?
