Fabric pumpkins have been an accessory staple in fall decor for years. Recently I bought a flowy kimono to wear in my fall wardrobe. It was just way too long for me, so I cut off the bottom edges. The fabric is so funky and cool that I thought it would make the cutest boho fabric pumpkins!

This project is literally one of the easiest seasonal home decor items to make. All you need is some scrap fabric, hot glue & gun, and some wood stems. There is a small amount of simple sewing involved. I hate sewing, but I promise this project is not really difficult and should not to keep you from making them. Let me show how I made these cuties!

Funky Boho Fabric Pumpkins

Supplies:

  • Fabric of Your Choice
  • Wood Twigs
  • Hot Glue & Gun with Fabric Glue Sticks

Instructions:

make a fabric pumpkin

Cut your fabric to 2 strips of 21 x 9 inch strips for the large pumpkin and 2 strips of 19 x 7 inches for the small pumpkin. Place each strip of fabric with the “right” or printed side inward toward each other or on the inside of the fabric stack. Glue the short ends of the fabric together with a hot glue gun.

Using a needle and thread sew a single stitch from one end of the bottom edge to the other on the long end of the fabric.

I used cut sections of a grapevine wreath for my stems. I took apart an old wreath and cut sections of the thick vines with a hacksaw for stems. You could also use craft twigs for this part and maybe make a felt leaf to go on it. Add hot glue to the ends of the twig and insert it into the top gathered section of the cloth pumpkin.

    These are so fun and funky for Fall! I love experimenting with colors and patterns that aren’t traditionally “fall” and these would be so cute on a shelf or grouped in a bowl! I’ll be featuring these at Merry Monday next week!
