Dollar Tree Velvet Pumpkins

I’m seriously so excited to share these DIY velvet pumpkins with you!

If you follow me on Facebook you know I love me some dollar store crafts and fall decor is probably my favorite to create.

I fell in love with the gorgeous velvet pumpkins that I was seeing at all the home stores, but they were way too pricey for my budget.

So what’s a crafter to do? Make their own of course!

The next obstacle I had to overcome was, that I don’t sew. Not even a little.

But I’ve said it many times before. I can no-sew with the best of them.

All I need is my favorite cordless glue gun and I’m ready to roll!

Here is the simple no-sew tutorial for these glamorous velvet pumpkins.

Supplies Needed For DIY Dollar Tree Velvet Pumpkins

Step 1. Remove the Pumpkin Stem

The first step is to remove the stem from the foam pumpkin. It pulls out easily. Replacing the stem makes a big difference.

Step 2. Cut a Hole in the Dollar Tree Foam Pumpkin

Cut a hole in the center of the dollar store pumpkin. You can use a craft knife or scissors.

Step 3. Hot Glue Strips of Velvet

Hot glue your strips of fabric until the pumpkin is covered. You can push the velvet into the hole on top of the pumpkin.

If using velvet fabric trace a circle onto the fabric and cut with your fabric scissors as shown in these leopard velvet DIY pumpkins.

Step 4. Glue the Stem

Add a dab of hot glue to the glass knob and secure it to the top of the pumpkin.

See how easy that was? There are gorgeous colors of velvet ribbon, so you can really be creative and make these your own.

Wouldn’t these make nice gifts too?

I have a few more to finish, as I plan to display them in a large dough bowl.
