Bring some drama to your decor with these Snakeskin Fabric Feather Pumpkins. Black/white + colorful plush pumpkin decor for Halloween or trendy chic fall decor. For more spooky decor see my Halloween page.
I am back with some more fabric pumpkins! I made some Shibori fabric pumpkins for fall a few weeks ago. You should go check them out if you did not see them.
After making them, I realized I had a couple of great snakeskin printed fabrics that would make perfect spooky Halloween fabric pumpkins.
This such a simple fabric pumpkin project that you can literally make out of any pattern and they come out fantastic!
You could add ribbons to the stems or twine in the stems. I decided to add some rooster tail feathers that have an eerie green look in certain lighting layered around the tops of the pumpkins. Here’s how I made them.
How to Make Fabric Feather Pumpkins
- Fabric: Black & White Snakeskin, Colorful Snakeskin
- Hot Glue & Gun
- Fiberfill Stuffing
- Strong Polyester Thread
- Rooster Tail Feathers
- Hot Glue & Gun
- Grapevine Wreath Cut to Stems or Faux Pumpkin Stems
Plush Pumpkin Decor Fabric Sizes
- Medium Pumpkin 11 x 26 inches
- Small Pumpkin 10 x 25 inches
Fold the fabric in half with the “wrong side” or back of the pattern on the inside. Hot glue (or sew) the short end sides together.
Hand stitch one end in large stitches.
Turn the fabric “right side” out or the pattern side out and hand stitch the other end with a large stitch just like the first end. Stuff the pumpkin with fiberfill.
I like to stuff as much as I can to make it look full. Smooth out any lumps.
Pull the thread to close the top. Hold it tight and stitch across the top to pull all of the sides to the middle.
Add a generous dot of glue to the top and push the stem into the gathered seam. Hold the stem until the glue dries and that’s it!
How to Make Feather Pumpkins
Trim the tops off of the feathers down to 5-6 inches.
Glue 6 feathers going around the top of the pumpkin. Take the bottom half of the cut feathers and trim the top to make it round with scissors. GLue them in between the 6 feathers.
Glue 6 more feathers turned sideways over the short feathers to add height. Add 4 longer feathers randomly around the pumpkin.
Add glue to the bottom of the stem and push it int the middle of the feathers and hold it until the glue dries. Display your spooky pumpkins!
I hope you love these snakeskin fabric pumpkins! You can make a snake feather pumpkin or leave them plain and add a ribbon to the stem!
While I was at it, I made this funky crochet pumpkin from an old tank top! Want more pumpkn craft ideas? See my friend Erlene from My Pinterventures Gorgeous Black Decoupaged Red Rose Pumpkin.
