Plush Pumpkin

September 5, 2014

Hi Friends


Happy Friday!


Today I'm sharing how I made a plush pumpkin using a doll's hat.


I cleaned out my daughter's closet and found some of her dolls.  One of them was wearing this hat.
 I thought it had the perfect shape to become a pumpkin.
I placed it on this bust so you can see how it looked before the transformation.


I cut off the pom-pom and saved it {of course} for another project.  Then I got to work stuffing it with batting and stitching around the top.


After I stitched the top I made a tight pull of all the extra material and stuffed it inside.
Now it has creases that resemble a pumpkin.

I used a branch found in my yard for the stem.

I cut the stem about an inch & wrapped it in burlap
And used this paint

Then I glued the stem on top of the pumpkin and wrapped twine around it.




Now I have a cute pumpkin to decorate for fall








Have A Great Weekend!!
