DIY TICKING STRIPE & DROP CLOTH PUMPKINS {HOW TO DECORATE FOR FALL ON A BUDGET}

Sharing is caring!

It’s fun making DIY decor, and you can always create stunning pieces in your home, and it won’t cost a fortune. 

If you are reading this, I’m thrilled because you are about to learn how to make lovely DIY Ticking Stripe & Drop Pumpkins. 

I am sure you will love them, and you get to use them to decorate your home this Christmas. 

The first thing you should get is your favorite fabrics, or you can get up to four pumpkin fabrics. 

You can cut out different sizes from a one-yard material. 

Other items you will need are chalk, needle, upholstery sewing thread, jute twine, glue gun, small stem stick, scrap leaves, and anything to stuff the pumpkins. 

The stuffing can be newspapers, toilet paper, or your old t-shirts.

Now that you have everything you need, let’s get right to it. Here are the simple steps to make your DIY Ticking Stripe Pumpkins.

Spread out your fabric and use the chalk to trace a circular object on it. 

With your thread and needle, you will make a basting stitch that would go around the circle.

Gather the fabric by taking one end of the fabric and the other end with the needle.

Put the stuffing in the circle and decide how full you want your stuffing.

Close up the pumpkin and make a tight knot using the twine to wrap around the pumpkin.

Take another twine to wrap around, and it should divide the pumpkin into three parts or more. 

Tie all the pieces of twine, and then you can place your leaves and the stem stick with the glue gun.

These simple steps will help you make an adorable cloth pumpkin. 

I am eager to see your beautiful result, but the most important thing is to have a lot of fun while at it. 

Make it an enjoyable activity as we roll into the holiday season.

Have a super-duper creation!
