You're Going to Love My Piggy Pumpkins (Themed Pumpkins are a Blast)

Themed Pumpkins are a Blast!!

And these were especially fun to make. Pig Pumpkins!!


Originally I wanted to use white pumpkins but when we went to the farm the white pumpkins all had flaws so I decided to have my husband paint these orange pumpkins WHITE. I love white. I'm on a white kick. I want to paint everything white.. walls, furniture... pumpkins. You get the idea.

These were inspired by Country Living Magazine... they also had a cow and a bunny.. 

The most challenging for making these is the ears. I just winged making the ears freehand. I hate patterns. I did make a pattern for you guys since not everyone can just cut out a pattern.

Right click, save as.. to your pictures and print out.


Cut 2 ears for each pumpkin out of stiff pink felt.  Make a crimp in the base of each ear and then fold over and hot glue to the pumpkin in the appropriate place *look at picture for placement.




 2 black buttons for eyes, a pink felt circle for a snout and sunflower seeds for nostrils complete the look.


Pink pipecleaner circled around your finger makes a really cute piggie tail.


Pink gingham bow for the baby piggies.


Hope you enjoyed this and are inspired in some way.
