patchwork pumpkins


I used Golden Gel Medium to adhere the fabric but Mod Podge or even craft glue would work.
I used a white Sharpie Paint Pen to add the details.


For those who have inquired what I do with my pumpkins- I actually use them through November in home decor, I will also use them as a center piece on the table and even give them away to friends and family. 

For those who have inquired if its sad to throw them out when the time comes- the answer is no. I actually love creating art/craft that is temporary. There is something quite beautiful to me about a creative project that has a shelf life!


Here is run down of all the pumpkins tutorials over the years. Its been so much fun getting creative with such simple materials!

1. black and white pumpkins 2. finger painted pumpkins 3. pattern pumpkins 4. geometric pumpkins 5.sketchbook pumpkins 6. messy pumpkins 7. pretty painted pumpkins 8. beach pumpkins 9. owl pumpkins 10. lace pumpkins

I love that you don't just cut the face and put candle into the pumpkin. You are really creative and this idea is one of my favourite! :)
