Chevron Fabric Pumpkin

My friends and I got together the other day to have a chance to catch up and actually create something we've pinned if we wanted to do so.  

I was inspired by Sarah at Alderberry Hill to create a fabric covered pumpkin. She has a great tutorial that you can follow by clicking on her link.  I had already gotten a couple pumpkins at the dollar store, so I was excited to try it out.

I had picked up some orange chevron fabric from Joann's the other day, so I decided to use it for this project.  I simply cut the fabric into strips and used the Mod Podge for fabric to attach it to the pumpkin.



Then I added some simple buttons around the top to give it a little something extra.  It was an inexpensive project costing around $4.00 with the pumpkin, buttons and fabric all together.  Thank you for stopping by!

  10. Your pumpkin turned out really cool! My weekly linky party--One Creative Weekend--has gone spooky this week in honor of my thirteenth party. If you haven’t already, I hope you’ll visit "One Creative Weekend" on OneCreativeMommy.com (open every Fri-Wed) and link up this idea and anything else you’d like to share. (You can include non-Halloween posts as well, but feel free to link up as many Halloween-themed posts as you like.)

  13. These are so cute and I love how they match your blog! I have yet to do anything chevron in my house (I'm a slacker) but this would be a great start.

    I would love for you to share these at my weekly linky party at http://cupcakesandcrinoline.com/2012/09/its-time-to-party-weekly-linky-party/

    I hope to see you there and have a wonderful week! mb

  14. Too cute! I thought this was a stuffed pumpkin and I am so glad it's fabric and glue so I can make one. I don't sew, but I'm wack with glue!

  22. I love the chevron and I don't usually! It still keeps the pumpkin orange which I love but it adds so much punch!
