How I Made Cute Fall Pumpkins Out of an Old Sweater!

4 Materials
30 Minutes

It's pumpkin season y'all! I wants some cute little pumpkins that went with my new simple and neutral esthetic. I had an old sweater that I was going to donate and thought to use it instead!

The sweater was nice but just never looks quite right.

I stared by cutting off the sleeves and discarding the new vest.

Then I folded over the sleeve on one side to create a pocket that I filled with poly fil. Since this was a two toned sweater, I folded over on each side to get one tan and one black pumpkin.

I then wrapped the remaining fabric though the hole like a donut and pulled the excess out the mild to create a little "leaf".

For the stem, I used a cinnamon stick! Not only does it look adorable but it also smells great.

For the tan pumpkin, I used some string to wrap around to give it that sectioned look. The is the look from the bottom.

I left the black one as is, so you can create 2 different looks with the craft.

I think I'm ready for the season :)

Which one is your favorite?

    So you pull the bottom up through the middle & out the top to create the leaf? Leaving space to add the polyfil, then tying it at the top? Thank you. I love the leaf addition. Never saw that before. The cinnamon stick instead of a stick is a great idea as well
