Easy DIY Fabric Pumpkins

These are the easiest fabric pumpkins ever and they look like you picked them up at a Pottery Barn.

Making a velvet pumpkin, for me, meant that I wouldn’t need to pick up a needle at all.

– Papier Mache pumpkins  – Stretch velvet fabric  – Scissors – Exacto knife – Mod podge – Extra fine glitter – Paper plate  – Glue gun


First, prep the pumpkin before adding the fabric. Begin cutting the stem away from the pumpkin.


Cut out a large square of the velvet stretch fabric to cover the pumpkin. Before cutting, check to make sure you are being generous enough to cover the pumpkin.

Starting with one corner of the fabric and begin stuffing the velvet into the paper mache pumpkin.

Continue this until all the fabric has been stuffed into the center. Your fabric should be tight enough that you are seeing the contour of your pumpkin coming through.
