DIY Velvet Pumpkins
Y’all! I have joined the velvet pumpkin craze! They are so gorgeous and I wanted some for my very own. Have you made or purchased any yet? If you don’t want the expensive price tag, scroll down to see how to make them on a dime. It’s easy peasy! The prices for hand crafted velvet pumpkins can get pretty expensive so I’m glad I finally ordered some velvet fabric to create some. It was a pleasantly simple and quick process once I found/purchased all of my supplies. If you can cut a circle and thread a needle, you are golden!
DIY Velvet Pumpkins in just a few easy steps!
Dried Pumpkins Stems
Beans and Poly-fil
Needle and thread
Hot glue and gun
Step one: Use a place or round object to trace a circle on the underside of the velvet.
Step two: Cut our your circle.
Step three: Sew a loose stitch around the perimeter.
Step four: Pull the thread so the opening starts to close a little. Fill with beans then Poly-fil.
Step five: Pull the thread gently until the opening is completely closed. Tie if off with a few knots.
Step six: Hot glue a stem on top!
I hope you enjoy them as much as I do!

Thanks, I wondered how easy my tutorials and tips were to follow. I’m in love with my pumpkins and can’t wait to get my hands on some more silk velvet. =) I think I need a robins egg blue and black to go with the mix!
LOVE all of the Velvet Pumpkins! Thanks for an easy tutorial especially the bean trick! Pinned it.
Lovely! Do you know the exact colors of the fabric you used?
Thanks! I just searched for orange, purple, and white velvet on eBay. The white is actually panne-crushed velvet.
Where did you get the stems? I love the velvet pumpkins and will be trying to make real soon
Thanks! I went to my church’s pumpkin patch and asked if I could pick up any loose stems off the ground. I’ve seen them for sale on ebay or you could use squash stems. 🙂 Good luck!
I just made some pumpkins. I’m having trouble closing the hole that is left after pulling the thread. I stitched the hole closed. Is there something I am missing?
I believe I used hot glue to help secure the hole after I stitched it. 😉
