Sometimes I get so tired of the same colors used for every holiday and season. So, this year I am going with cream, blue, green and gold for the fall. It certainly is not the typical or traditional color palette most people use, but it makes me happy so I’m going with it. Today I am sharing how to create this lovely Felt floral Pumpkin.
In keeping with my non traditional colors this fall, I wanted a non traditional looking pumpkin, too. I got the crazy idea of making a Felt floral Pumpkin. I felt like I had seen about every pumpkin out there but not many felt flowered ones. And let me tell you, after I completed this pumpkin, I realized why there weren’t many like it out there… it takes a long long time to make, ha!
What supplies do I need to make a Floral Felt Pumpkin?
I went to my local craft 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.
How to make a Floral Felt Pumpkin?
I started by making felt flowers. Some I actually followed patterns from tutorials on Pinterest but others I simply cut petal shapes and hot glued them together in fun ways.
Once I had a few felt flowers made, I started at the top of the pumpkin and slowly, slowly, slowly worked my way down.
Even after adding just a few rows of the felt flowers to the pumpkin, I thought it looked so stunning. And slowly, I began making progress.
I would do a few rows each evening… this was a great activity while you are watching Netflix!
