I recently added a few fabric fat quarters to my crafting arsenal. I have had a lot of fun creating with fabric. This doesn’t always involve sewing! Today’s project is completely no-sew. These fun patchwork DIY fabric pumpkins were pretty easy to put together, and add a fun pop of color to my transitioning-into-autumn home decor.
Supplies needed to make your own DIY fabric pumpkins:
- Fat Quarters (your choice of color and patterns, you will need four (4) different fats)
- 4 inch Foam Balls
- 3 inch Foam Balls
- Wood Doll Pins
- Green Cloth Covered Floral Wire
- Mod Podge Matte
- 10 inch Bamboo Skewers
- Tim Holtz Spray Stain
- Butter Knife
Using scissors make a notch in the fabric at the desired measurement.
Coat the entire pumpkin with a generous layer of Mod Podge. This will seal the fabric and make it more durable. Take care to get into the gutters of the seams where the fabric has a tendency to pull out and fray.
You can experiment with different colors and patterns. A fat quarter will go a long way.
