What you'll need:

  • Burlap (multiple colors or spray paint)
  • Twine
  • Polyfill
  • Large Needles
  • Pumpkin Stems
  • Hot Glue
  • Scissors

How to do it:

  1. Cut free-handed circles of various sizes out of burlap– the circles don't need to be perfect, and the size will vary depending on your desired look
  2. Run a twine stitch on the perimeter of each circle
  3. Fill the pumpkin with stuffing, but don't overstuff it so the pumpkin maintains a slouched look
  4. Pull the twine tightly from both sides to cinch the opening
  5. Add a couple stitches at the top of the pumpkin to seal the opening
  6. Hot glue real pumpkin stems to the cinched opening of your burlap pumpkin
  7. Enjoy your new fall decor!
