Hey friends! It’s finally FALL in Iowa and you can bet I’m happy! I’m also happy to be sharing this fun little DIY I did over the weekend. It’s for these adorable and simply – easy…Farmhouse chic chenille pumpkins!
They are seriously easy and fun to make!
Remember my beautiful pillows I made last year using an old chenille bedspread?
Well, you can read about that over here, but these adorable pumpkins were made using some remnants of that same bedspread.
Farmhouse chic chenille pumpkins
- chenille fabric pieces
- circle pattern
- poly filler
How To: Start by tracing circles onto fabric. (I used a 14″ platter for the larger ones, then I used a 10″ dinner plate for the smaller ones. You can make whatever size you want). Gather the top edge by making long basting stitches around the entire cut edges. Once done, gather the stitching and fill with poly filler. Tighten the stitches and knot off. Now you can glue your top stems on. While the glue is drying, grab the twine and cut several long pieces. I dipped each end in hot wax and immediately wrapped the ends on a pencil to make curls. Allow to dry and tie off on the stems. I added some paper leaves (you can use attached template).

FALL around here means starting with our Halloween decor but not leaving pumpkins and leaves out of the picture!
We drag out lots of oranges, yellows, browns, and more to fill each room.
And let’s not forget the fun stuff besides decorating! I mean— baking, cooking, canning, and crafts.
The cooler, crisp days mean that lots of time will be spent outdoors not only enjoying the colors and fresh breezes but building, crafting, painting and woodworking! YAY!!!
Gotta get going before winter rolls in~
