Fall is on its way, so pumpkins are everywhere, from our doorsteps to a splash of flavor in our coffee. I love the cool air fall brings along with the warmth of colors. Every year, I add one new creative pumpkin decorating idea to the blog. This year, I am delighted to share my Woodland Animal Pumpkins Tutorial in collaboration with Michaels Craft Stores.
I crafted these three adorable animals, a fox, raccoon, and deer from felt, iron-on vinyl, and faux pumpkins with the help of my Cricut Maker machine!

If you haven’t picked up a Cricut for yourself yet, let this be the year you do! Trust me, it can do so much – it’s not just a vinyl cutting machine – you can cut things like felt in today’s tutorial as well as paper, fabric, chipboard and so much more! Michaels Craft Store is my favorite place to shop for supplies and their stores are full of vibrant fall decorations, like these pumpkins and gorgeous silk florals!
