DIY Faux Fur Covered Pumpkins

Ever see those plastic pumpkins at the craft store? They're a great way to decorate for the fall, and the possibilities are endless! I decided to bring some coziness to them and cover them in faux fur!
Here's all the supplies you need!
Pumpkins in the size of your choice.
Faux Fur Fabric (I got mine at JoAnns)
Battery Powered Lights
Wood Stem
Hot Glue
X-Acto Knife
Start by cutting a hole in the bottom of your pumpkins.
Then poke holes randomly with a pencil if you're going to include lights.
Cut your fabric in strips, tapering them at the tops so that you don't get a big bunch by the stem. Use your hot glue gun to attach the strips, slightly overlapping each one.
Find some branches in your yard and cut off some new stems! Attach a ribbon and voila!
If using the lights, poke the lights through the holes and use some small scissors or another sharp object to make holes in the fabric to allow them to shine through!
