We went pumpkin picking this weekend (pics coming soon) and we’re now the proud owners of 3 shiny new pumpkins. Last year I decoupaged my pumpkins and this year I wanted to do something a little different, so I felted them. That’s right people, I felted them. I was dreading the clean up of pumpkin carving. Hey, I’m a sleep deprived new mom here. I don’t have time to clean up pumpkin guts. So I came up with this super easy no-carve/no-mess solution.
You will need…
Glue (I used hot glue but any glue would work)
Simply cut your pumpkin face out of the felt. If you aren’t that artistic (it took me a couple tries to get the perfect face), you could use one of those pumpkin carving kits as a template. Instead of cutting the pumpkin, cut the design out of the felt. Or you could even just cut out a bunch of shapes.
Next, glue the face on your pumpkin. I hot glued my face on but any glue should do the trick. The result is a totally cute and unique pumpkin (without a messy cleanup). This guy is already on my porch waiting for trick-or-treaters. Now go felt your pumpkin!
