Fall Decorating - A pumpkin full of rosesI’ve seen lots of pumpkin “wreaths” around the blogs but I haven’t seen one that is filled with fabric roses so I decided to
make one and here it is.
The first thing I did was get some nice orange pumpkiny looking fabric.
Cut a 2 inch by 12 inch strip out of the fabric. I cut lots of of them for this project. Fold this strip in half lengthwise and make a long stitch along the raw edge side.
Take one of the threads and gently pull it until the little strip of fabric is gathered as so.
Then I take one end and start curling it around, and hot glue it.
Keep curling it around and gluing.
When you get to the end of the fabric strip, turn the end down so that the raw edge is down at the bottom of the rose. Hot glue it.
Now the whole rose should be in one piece. Nice.
Here is how I made the Pumpkin Door Decoration…
I cut a pumpkin shape out of a cardboard box and covered it with polyester batting and the same fabric as the fabric roses.
Then I glued all of the roses onto the “pumpkin”. I wrapped the “stem” with green polka dot fabric.
I like it like this because it’s kind of artsy, but I understand if people need all the roses to be the same. As my daughter’s teenage friend used to say, “Whatever floats your boat.”
