Felt Pumpkin

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.

  6. That is so gorgeous! I agree about the fall colors thing… I was dragging my feet decorating my mantel because I felt so uninspired! Next year I’m taking a page from your book!

    1. I always dream of a bedroom in all white, but I’m with you… too much of a color girl. Fun to dream, though!

      Thanks for stopping by.

  10. This is absolutely beautiful, Amy! You’re so creative that I want to follow you! I’m no traditionalist either! I love making seasonal items in all shades of purple if I can.

  11. This is lovely! And I love your color choices. My fall mantle is also in untraditional colors, and I love how fresh it feels. Lots of aqua. 🙂 I also really like the different textures you added to your pumpkin with the felt. It’s fabulous!

  12. SHUT UP!!!! I can totally see you making money with this blog in a few months.
    You are a gold mine of creativity! Awesome job!
    I’m going to go hide my mums from you!

    1. Haha! Thanks, Lena. I’m getting some pretty good results so far, but still keeping my fingers crossed!

      No mum hiding… you can still win me over with my plant nerd lovin’. =)

  13. This is BEAUTIFUL! I love the idea of non-traditional colors for the season. I think it makes it feel fresh and help you enjoy the season. So if those colors are calling your name, go with them! Totally pinning this 🙂

  14. I LOVE IT! White is hands down my favorite color to decorate with. Last year I did a white/navy/lavender Christmas theme (sounds old lady, but it rocked) and I loved it. Your pumpkin is AMAZING! I am seriously swooning! xoxo

      Thanks so much. I think white might be my new decor color of choice after this project! And I could imagine a white, navy, lavender tree being stunning!
