Stack Circles

To create the pumpkin shape, stack a circle of felt plus two layers of quilt batting and the cardboard circle together. Glue in place.

Sew on Seams

Poke a hole in the center of the cardboard, then thread a needle with orange yard to create seams on your pumpkin.

Attach Ribbon

Cut about 1 1/2 yards of ribbon and lay it across the middle. Then seal fabric in place by gluing the smaller felt circle on top.

Add Adornment

Add black feathers and spider, gluing in place. Attach strip of lace along the underside of the circle, which looks like a veil. Finally, attach a 1 1/2' ribbon to the bottom of your circle and glue the second piece of black felt on top.
