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.  It seems like I had seen about every style of pumpkin out there, but not many felt flowered ones.  

I also used this pumpkin in my stunning Fall Boho Bat Fireplace display and it was the show stopper!

What supplies do I need to make a Floral Felt Pumpkin?

How to make a Felt Pumpkin:

Start 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. I found it helpful to pick about 3-5 different flower patterns and then just make a handful of them.

Once you get a handful of felt flowers made, you can begin at the the top of your pumpkin and slowly work your 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!

And after a few evenings of Netflix, finally I completed this no carve beauty!  She was so worth the effort, too.

And after my pumpkin was all done, I put that little felt beauty on a white cake plate to give her the perfect perch she needed.  A few additional bronze and buffalo check pumpkins and some leaves tucked in there and we have ourselves a perfect fall moment!

This would be a beautiful Fall Wedding Centerpiece, too. Can you just image how beautiful these pumpkins would look next to some votive candles, crisp linens and a bride + groom. So lovely!

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. 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’. =)


  16. 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 🙂

  17. 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

    1. April:

      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!
