This Embroidery Hoop Pumpkin project is so simple to create. I love adding something new to the walls or cabinets during the fall season. Fall always makes me feel happier inside with pumpkins everywhere.
This cute DIY Fall Embroidery Hoop Pumpkin is a super easy and fast craft that is ideal for customizing and adding to your décor. These are so easy, you will love them!
DIY Fall Embroidery Hoop Pumpkin
Adding pumpkins to your fall décor just makes sense. I love adding real gourds and pumpkins on my porch, but they will fall apart and decay so I can't keep them year to year. That's why I like making my own additions to our décor that I can store away for next year. This was an easy way to use up some scrap fabrics and items on hand to create a cute look for our house.
How Can I Customize My Fall Pumpkin?
You can use any color or pattern fabric for your embroidery hoop pumpkin. I love the idea of using flannel, burlap, or solid colors like orange, gold, dark yellow, or maroon. You can also add quotes, vinyl lettering, stencil on a monogram, or even just a bit of glitter or beads around the edges. If you like to embroider, you could even use this for a phrase or scripture.
How Do I Use These to Decorate?
I like to simply hang them on a hook or nail on the wall, but you can put them on your mantle, on a bookshelf, or even on a china cabinet. When you make a few different sizes, they turn into an adorable little pumpkin patch. A hook or even leaning against a piece of wood can make this sit up nicely anywhere you prefer.
- Wooden embroidery hoops
- Orange fabric
- Green scrap fabric or scrap sweater pieces
- Hot glue gun
- Hot glue sticks
1. Begin by pressing the orange fabric between the embroidery hoops. Pull the fabric tightly so it is wrinkle-free.
2. Use scissors to cut away any extra fabric around the edges. You want the edges of the hoop to be clean.
3. Cut a small piece of green fabric or sweater. Roll it into a stem shape and glue it to the top of the hoop.
4. Cut out additional leaves from the green fabric. Add a dab of glue to the leaves and press them below the stem. Allow all pieces to dry.
Your embroidery hoop pumpkins are now ready to be displayed.
