Ruffled Pumpkin….

Bought several pumpkins from Dollar Tree,

Now what to do, what to do,

Took me a long time before I decided on a pumpkin with ruffles…

Isn’t it cute?

Here’s how…

Used a stencil knife to cut out the stem, then primed with white paint.

Ripped 6, 1 1/4″ wide strips using Osnaburg muslin (love it, rips well)

Gathered the fabric on the top of the long edge, and starting pinning to pumpkin. I  didn’t hem the fabric, and just overlapped the edges at the end of each row.

Kept adding another row until I reached the top. Once I had all the rows done I went back and hot glued, removed pins.  So Shabby!

I had a remnant piece of burlap ribbon and tucked inside, and put a Dollar Tree black crow on top.

A closeup, loving it!

Got to go, need to make a few more!

What have you been doing with your pumpkins?

    Hi Cathy! That is so cute. I never would have thought of that! I just spray painted three of those $T pumpkins today. 2 Black and 1 white. I think I’m gonna put some beads on mine since I haven’t seen that yet. What do you think?

      Hi Andrea, I think that would be cool! On the black glittery rhinestones, gosh the possibilities are endless. Do they have them at the Dollar Tree? Maybe I should head over!
