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?

LOTS of cream felt ( I used about 12 sheets)
Sewing scissors
faux 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.

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.

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!

And after a few evenings of Netflix, finally I had completion!  And also maybe a few hot glue burns, ha.

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!

  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!
