Easy DIY Rustic Fabric Pumpkins

Would you believe me if I told you, I can’t find fresh, real pumpkins here where I live?… I’m sure you wouldn’t. But it’s true. Just around October 15th or so you might see some pumpkins already painted with jack-o-lantern faces on it.

This is my third Fall here in Spain and I haven’t been able to find pretty pumpkins that are not Halloween-ready. For that reason, I had to start being creative making my own pumpkins. Today I’m sharing with you how to make some really cute and easy rustic Fabric Pumpkins.

I couldn’t make my mind about how to make the pumpkins, I had seen Lauren’s style from The Thinking Closet and I love it. Then I saw Christy’s from Confessions of a Serial Do-it-Yourselfer and they look so darn pretty and then again I checked Sondra’s Lyn’s from Sondra Lyn at Home and fell in love! I got so much inspiration.

I decided to make 2 methods and after I was done with one of each, I thought why not share them with you.

Rustic Fabric Pumpkins 2 Ways.

Fabric Pumpkins Method 1:


  • Needle & Thread (I used a thread color that matched my fabric)
  • Scissors
  • Polyester Fiber Fill
  • Burlap
  • Twine
  • Fabric (For the tutorial I used rustic linen)
  • Fabric Markers.
  • Ruler
  • A small piece of branch.
  • Hot glue gun
  • Pins

Fold your fabric twice with edges even.

Using a ruler, measure the length from the folded corner to the shortest edge. That will be your measure.
