I have seen these little velvet punkins everywhere and decided it is punkin making time!
So I whipped up a few.
Lazy is my name when it comes to crafting so the easier the better and let me tell ya this is the easiest DIY ever!
I found this gold velvet fabric at a garage sale a year or so ago for like $2.00 or $3.00 so I dug it out of my pile of scraps to make some cute velvet pumpkins.
Today I am sharing 2 different ways to make them and when you look at them at the end you really can’t tell the difference.
Sewing velvet punkins
First I made pumpkins by sewing them.
I took a 10″ square of fabric and ran a long gathering stitch all the way around in a circle.
Depending on the size of the pumpkin you want you could make them bigger or smaller.
Not perfectly sewn by any stretch of the imagination but it works!
I pulled the threads to gather up all the fabric.
Leave a pretty big opening to fill it up with batting.
After stuffing the opening I scrunched it all up and tied it with some ribbon…done!!
But don’t worry I also have a new sew way to make these little punkins!
No Sew Punkin making time
The second way I made them is the NO SEW way!
Take your square of fabric grab some batting…plop it in the middle and gather up the fabric and cinch it with a rubber band!
Add ribbon or raffia.
In the photo below the punkin pictured on the left is the no sew and the one on the right is the one I sewed.
(I used a little bit bigger piece of fabric so it made a larger Punkin).
Here is one of the Punkins on my fall table.
I left the edges raw and it looks rustic and fun.
