Fabric & Plastic Bag Pumpkins

This first pumpkin was SO EASY to make!! I even showed a friend how and whipped up two more in 5 minutes! This idea was originally from Our Pinteresting Family: Plastic Bag Pumpkins. Check out her post to see the how-to.

Basically, I wrapped fabric around wadded up plastic bags and then secured it with twine. Then, I added burlap on top as the stem. Viola!! No glue, no tape!


DIY Shabby Pumpkin

I found this adorable DIY Fall Shabby Pumpkin by Sarah Dawn Designs and just had to try it myself!! Check out her post to see how to make it – can you believe that you just start with a roll of toilet paper and wrap twine around it?

I really want to make this Book Pumpkin by Sarah Dawn Designs next!!



Then, I can add it to my collection:

      Thanks so much for visiting and commenting. These pumpkins are so easy to make, anyone can try it! I like to stick to simple things, because I’m not a great DIY-er either.

  • Sarah

    I’m so glad your twine pumpkin turned out! If you make a book pumpkin I would love to see it!
