Pumpkin Season

Another Teresa Greene (Our Greene Acres) inspired project. I cut a round piece of drop cloth and stamped it all around with a leaf pattern.

I then gathered it up, stuffed it with poly fiber, added a wood stem, and secured it. I fluffed the edges, letting them ravel as I fluffed them.

This pumpkin was inspired by Julie’s Signs & Designs. I made a template kind of in the shape of a tear drop and cut 8 pieces from a vintage chenille bedspread. I hot glued them together so the edges were on the outside.

I added a stem from a stick in my yard. The leaves Are real. I preserved them a couple of years ago using glycerin. They are pliable and have held up well. the curly piece is paper covered wire.

I made a smaller one to fit inside two Dollar Tree wire pumpkin forms I put together with zip ties.
