Burlap Pumpkin tutorial and copycat Kirklands

Burlap Pumpkins Fall tutorial
               and Copycat Kirklands Burlap Pumpkins

When shopping recently in the US,  I went into Kirklands in the Walden Galleria Mall.


I noticed these burlap pumpkins that had stenciled fall on them.

They were priced at $24.99.

I have burlap and stencils so I knew I could do a copycat.

So let's begin.

This is what you will need:

hot glue gun
burlap
paint
stencils
needle
string
jute twine
wooden spools
poly fil stuffing

Cut burlap into 17" x 10"  4x
Fold over and stitch down one side.
 Then use the orange paint and cover the entire piece.

Now thread your needle with string and do a long running stitch across one end.

Now pull the string taunt. Turn fabric inside out.

Time to stencil on the letters.



Once dry it's  time to stuff with poly fil stuffing. Don't be stingy. Fill it up.


Time to pull out the string and needle once again and do a running stitch across the top.




Pull tight and secure the string.

Next we are going to add the jute twine by wrapping it around the burlap to make a pumpkin.


The wooden spools are wrapped in the jute twine and then hot glued onto the top the the
pumpkin.


This was a fun and easy project at a quarter of the price.


Again mine........
