Level of difficulty:  Beginner

What You'll Need:

  • Crafter's Closet Jute
  • Crafter's Closet Hot Glue Sticks
  • Crafter's Closet Hot Glue Gun
  • Crafter's Closet Beading Wire
  • Crafter's Closet Fabric Scissors
  • Faux Fall Leaves

  • Fall Plaid Tablecloth/ Fabric
  • Needle and Thread

Let's Do This!


Step 1:

  1. Cut a large square out of your tablecloth. Our recommended size is no smaller then twelve inches.
  2. Fold the square into quarters and cut in a curve from one corner to the opposite. Be sure to keep the folded edges in tack.
  3. Open up the fabric to reveal a circle!


Step 2:

  1. Turn your fabric upside down.
  2. Begin to loosely stitch around the edge of the entire circle with the needle and thread.
  3. Fill the inside with loose poly-fil.
  4. Pull the thread tight and close up the center of the pumpkin. Tie a knot at the base of the thread to keep the stitches together.


Step 3:

  1. Grab a small branch or twig from outside and hot glue into the center of the pumpkin.
  2. Using the Jute, tie a knot around the bottom of the stem and hot glue the loose edge down.
  3. Begin to wrap the jute around the fabric and create the natural sections that a pumpkin forms.
  4. Hot glue the end of the twine to the bottom of the stem.


Step 4:

  1. Twist the Jute and Beading Wire together.
  2. Add to the stem but tying a knot, a little off center.
  3. Wrap the Wired Jute around a pen or pencil. Remove the pen to reveal a coiled decoration!
  4. Spread out the coils and place how you would like.


Step 5:

  1. Hot Glue a leaf to the base of the stem and put on display!
