Fall is almost here, and I start thinking fall “Halloween” crafts/projects. I am doing my best to hold off on Halloween until at least early-mid September. So today I am sharing these cute and simple “Fabric Scrap|Wood Pumpkins” I have a bunch of blocks from A Box of Blocks and I thought how cute would it be to take scrap fabric and hot glue fabric on and around to some wood blocks. Well that is what I did, and “Hello” super easy and you can make as many as you want with whatever orange colored or designed fabric that you like.
What you Need:
– wood blocks in different sizes
– fabric in some different colors and patterns
– Green burlap or other green fabric for the leaves
– rotary blad
– cutting mat
– hot glue gun
– wood dowel toppers
– dark walnut stain and rag
I started by cutting strips of fabric the width that I wanted, then I wrapped the perimeter of the wood block with the fabric hot gluing the strip of fabric down. I trimmed any over hang. I then continued with more strips of fabric layering and covering the rest of the wood block. Again, I cut off any over hang. I then took my wood dowel (not sure what they are called) topper and took some dark walnut stain to a rag and rubbed the rag all over the dowel to stain it. I set them aside and cut out leaf shapes from some green burlap. I added glue to one end of the burlap and pinched (careful not to burn) the ends together to create a leaf shape. I then glued down both leaves to the wood block and finally glued down the wood dowel topper. Super easy project great for a craft night.
