sassy pumpkins for fall

Pumpkin Couture

So my friend Linda brought me this totally hot pumpkin because she said the black and white fabric reminded her of me. I already loved it and then she told me she made it for me so now I love it even more. What an awesome hostess gift, teacher gift, or fall decoration for your own home.

Here are more of Linda’s creations, it’s all about using great fabrics. They could compliment your home decor, your personality or your fashion sense.

Love the fabric collections...

Here are Linda’s instructions:

They are very easy to make and with plastic pumpkins being so cheap at Michael’s, one could go crazy on making one to match every room!

I purchased 1/2 yard of fabric (which can cover two pumpkins depending on their size), Mod Podge (at Michael’s) and foam brushes.  Cut the material into strips that measure from the top of the pumpkin to the bottom.  On smaller pumpkins, I would cut the strips a little thinner to make them easier to handle (1 to 1 1/2 inches wide).  Work on a piece of wax paper (to save the table) and Mod Podge a thin layer onto the backside of the fabric and then place on the pumpkin smoothing out the edges. Place the next strip as close to the first one as possible and so on.  Once all the strips are on, brush a coat of Mod Podge on top of all of the fabric and let dry for an hour.  Repeat.  Tie with raffia or ribbons.

I’m going to make a whole pumpkin family with our Juicy Blossoms fabric – can’t wait!
