Fabric covered pumpkins

We love making seasonal decor that is timeless. And we love when it can blend into our home decor. Neutrals, whites, creams and more are right up our alley! 

This DIY Fabric Covered Pumpkins project meets all of the above! We used linen fabrics and mod podge to cover craft pumpkins 

What do you need to cover a pumpkin with fabric?

Craft pumpkins (small and large) We love using the paper mâché pumpkins. They are essentially a thin cardboard that you can paint or decoupage. You can also use foam pumpkins from big box stores.

What fabric can you use to cover pumpkins?

You can honestly use any fabric you would like! We love the natural look of linen fabric. But you could use patterned fabric as well. Plaid, checkered, whimsical patterns, solid and more would look lovely. If you use a burlap fabric with more of an open weave, you will have to overlap the fabric more so you do not see the craft pumpkin that much. 

How do you display a fabric covered pumpkin?

These DIY fabric pumpkins look darling anywhere. I love how they look mixed with real pumpkins displayed on about a fireplace. I also have some styled on bookshelves. I have some of the mini pumpkins in a large wood dough bowl on the dining room table as well. Again, mixed with mini real pumpkins too! Love the look.
