When September settles in, we get the itch to start decorating our home. Emma usually asks, "Mom, is it time to get our leaf garland out yet?" She's just like her mother, I'm happy to say!
This year, we wanted a little something special to spruce up our Fall decor. Enter....cute little Fabric Pumpkins!!
When I thought about doing this with the kids, I knew very well this would NOT be something for Elijah (my 2 year old boy) to get in on. But I decided to include him anyway. He got as far as picking out fabric and plopping some stuffing onto it:
but then his concentration and interest quickly went to other things:
For this project you will need:
Dinner plate (for measuring the circle)
embroidery floss (optional)
stuffing ( like THIS Mountain Mist Fiberloft stuffing)
green craft wire
brown pipe cleaner
glue gun and sticks
Take your fabric and place the dinner plate on the wrong side of it. Trace the circle shape.
Cut out your circle.
Place your circle right side down on the floor. Place a mound of stuffing in the middle.
Here is Emma doing a stellar sewing job!
After you have sewn that up, fold over one side of the fabric and sew it down, connecting it to the middle of the pumpkin. Like this:
I hope you like our little taste of fall! Are the seasons changing where you live?
Stay tuned for a great biscuit recipe from Emma!
