White Chenille Pumpkins

These white chenille pumpkins make great use of an old bedspread. The project is easy to do and the result is stunning!

Halloween is coming and October 31 is also Carve a Pumpkin Day. If you don’t like the mess of a carved pumpkin, this project will let you have pumpkin decor without the mess!

There are, honestly, not many Halloween decorations that I would consider displaying in my home.  I did when my daughter was younger but those days have passed now.

When I saw this lovely Chenille pumpkin set on Erin Art and Gardens I was impressed. This was something that I would display with pride.  Erin found hers at a flea market but they would be very easy to do.

Also, this white chenille pumpkin decor would look great on a Thanksgiving table. Pumpkins are actually one of the six main symbols of Thanksgiving!

DIY Cenille Pumpkins

Note: Hot glue guns, and heated glue can burn. Please use extreme caution when using a hot glue gun. Learn to use your tool properly before you start any project.

You will need:

  • A set of faux pumpkins
  • a white chenille blanket or bedspread
  • three rustic branches from your yard
  • heavy gauge wire that can be coiled
  • gold spray paint.
  • thread and needle
  • hot glue

Method:

  1. Coil your wire into a spiral and spray it with gold paint. Let it sit aside to dry.
  2. Cut a circle from the chenille bedspread that is large enough to wrap the pumpkin smoothly with not too much extra material.   Repeat for each of the pumpkins.  I’d do them in three sizes.
  3. Coil the wire around the base of the branches and hot glue it in place.  Glue the stem to the top of the pumpkin
  4. Take your white thread and needle and stitch it loosely through the outside of the chenille circle.  Bring the circle up to the top of the pumpkin and draw it tightly so that it gathers around the top and around the stem.  Stitch it in place firmly.

Display them with pride!

Many thanks to Erin of Erin’s Art and Garden and her flea market find for sharing this project!  Be sure to visit her site. She also shows the design in orange material.
