DIY Mod Fabric Pumpkins

After making my Burlap Pumpkins with Real Stems last week it got me thinking about all the fun possibilities for DIY fabric pumpkins. So after a trip to the fabric store and some creativity in the “stem” department… DIY Mod Fabric Pumpkins were born.
I knew that I wanted to go with some funky graffic patterned fabrics and found just what I was looking for. I used the same method as I did with my Burlap Pumpkins to make them.
I however got a little inventive with the “stems”. Since I am not a sewer by any stretch of the imagination, I knew making some sewn stems was not an option. I was all out of my real stems from my burlap pumpkins. So while perusing the craft wood aisle I found some wood shaker pegs that I thought would work wonderfully!
I painted the wood pegs with craft paints to match the fabrics I had chosen. Once I had made the pumpkins I simply used some hot glue to attach the wood stems into the small openings at the top. The shape and modern feel of the “stems” add to the whole Mod feel of these pumpkins!
I tied things off with a sweet little bow with some coordinated ribbon.
These DIY Mod Fabric Pumpkins are definitely a more modern and funky take on the fabric pumpkin. I love their bold and fun colors and patterns of the fabric, they make me happy.

So what do you think of my Mod Pumpkins???

    try twigs or grapevine for the stems, it might look more realistic.
