DIY Silk Velvet Pumpkin – Make Yourself Easy Halloween Home Decor Kid Craft Idea


  • Cut your fabric in desired size circle. To give you an idea of scale, a circle of fabric 11″ in diameter makes a grapefruit sized pumpkin.


  • Thread your needle, knotting the end so that the tread is 2-ply and then sew a basic stitch by hand around the edge leaving 1/4″ inch lip.


  • Once you’ve got your stitch underway, start gathering as you go by gently pulling the thread to pleat the fabric.
  • When you’ve sewn completely around the circle, hold off on gathering the last few inches of fabric until after you’ve filled your velvet sack with beans and poly fill. Now gently pull the thread to close the hole.

  • Sew a few stitches across the hole to make sure it is tightly closed. Knot off your end and cut the thread.
  • Apply hot glue to the bottom of a dried gourd stem and stick it on the velvet pumpkin to cover your sewing, pressing down on the pumpkin until the glue hardens/cools.
