Inspiration: Decorate a Pumpkin!

Pumpkin decorating has been taken to new levels in the 21st Century! I'm only 26, but when we decorated pumpkins "back in the day", we either painted them or carved out the basic eyes, nose and mouth. Today there are so many different supplies and fresh ideas, that the traditional pumpkin almost seems boring. So here are a few fabric-minded pumpkin decorating ideas to spice up your fall and Halloween decor!

All of these pictures were found on Pinterest.


An elegant pumpkin! We have a wide variety of laces right now.

So sweet! Of course depending on your style and your stash, your pumpkin may look different. Decoupage strips of fabric to a pumpkin for a patchwork look.
Click on the links below for some recommendations:

Don't like the patchwork look? Cut out circles, swirls and more from fabric scraps. Then glue them onto your pumpkin for something a little different.



If you have some old Upholstery tacks laying around, stick them into your pumpkin for an edgy look. If you don't have tacks, why not try some buttons! 

We would love to see how you decorate your pumpkins with sewing-related items.
