How to Make Velvet Pumpkins

Tulip Color + COLORSHOT
by Tulip Color + COLORSHOT
Halloween is becoming less black and orange and more elegant and refined. That's why we absolutely love these dyed velvet-wrapped pumpkins. They are both stunning and sophisticated and can easily be taken beyond Halloween and into Thankgiving as well!
For this project you'll need Tulip Fabric Dyes in black, teal, and orange, along with foam pumpkins and white velvet! You'll also need Aleene's Fabric Fusion tape and a craft knife to get the job done :)
You'll want to use foam pumpkins for this project, cause a real pumpkin probably won't be so kind to your velvet fabric! Here we removed the stem from our faux pumpkin so that we could wrap our fabric around and stuff inside!
Get the full tutorial for this pretty project over on our blog! These pumpkins would make great centerpieces for your Halloween table or spooky mantel décor. They'd even look great sitting atop some ornate candlesticks or a cake stand for a pretty display! See more at the link below!

    Great idea! This reminds me of a recent "I could kick myself" moment I had yesterday. I found it necessary to go to WalMart and I looked at a plastic, carved pumpkin I could put outdoors. The darn thing was about 11" or so and it cost $14.95! I almost fainted! I have given away several of these in the recent as last year! I just don't have a knack for outdoor decorations! I have won the mailbox decoration prize at Christmas in our subdivision several times, but Halloween escapes me! I will get on my decorations today!
