Easy DIY Velvet Pumpkins 01:43

Create adorable velvet pumpkin decorations for fall using tube socks and fabric.

Materials Needed

  • scissors
  • tube sock
  • velvet fabric
  • sticks
  • plate
  • marker
  • hot glue gun
  • cotton batting

Roll and Wrap

Cut the toe off of a tube sock, and roll it up inside out. Lay the piece of fabric velvet side down and use a plate to trace a large circle. Once you've cut the circle out, place the rolled up sock in the center. Add a dab of hot glue in the center of the sock, pull the velvet around the sock, and push it into the center to hold it in place. Put a dot of hot glue on the end of a stick and press it into the center to act as the pumpkin stem. 

For a Bigger Pumpkin

To make a larger pumpkin, roll out some cotton batting, and cut a strip that is four layers thick and 6 inches wide. Unfold the cotton and roll it out. Next, roll it up longways first and then in a spiral. Hot glue the end of the cotton down to hold it in place. Trace a circle onto the second piece of velvet fabric large enough to cover the cotton batting pumpkin. Repeat the previous steps with the fabric and the stick to finish.
