These easy no sew fabric pumpkins made from dollar tree foam pumpkins will add the cutest look to your decor and they won’t break the bank!

I grabbed a bunch of these again this year at the dollar tree because I just knew I would find projects to do with them. I painted so many of them last year and knew I would want to do that plus who knows what else!Easy no sew fabric pumpkins from dollar tree pumpkins

Well, I decided to cut off the stem and just see how it would work to use fabric with these and I was SHOCKED at just how easy it was! I hope you are impressed too!Easy no sew fabric pumpkins, so easy and cute!

The steps are so simple: (Always remember, make these projects in YOUR color scheme!)Easy no sew fabric pumpkins from dollar tree pumpkins and fat quarter fabric

Take scissors or an exacto knife and cut around the top making a circle just a little bigger than the green stem. You don’t need this hole much bigger than that at all.Easy no sew fabric pumpkins with dollar tree foam pumpkins

Take a piece of fat quarter fabric (you can use any scrap fabric, but the fat quarters like sold at Wal-Mart and other places are the PERFECT size!

Place the pumpkin in the middle and literally start pulling the fabric up one piece at a time and shoving it inside the hole.Easy no sew fabric pumpkins, wrapping the fat quarter fabric around the pumpkin

Continue this all the way around until all the fabric is inside the hole!

Then, get creative and add some stems! I used cinnamon sticks for mine. Add a little raffia, jute or a bow and BOOM! Easy no sew fabric pumpkins that literally anyone can do!Easy no sew fabric pumpkins with cinamon sticks for stems

Last year I painted a ton of these pumpkins, which you can see here. I hope to do more of those again this year as well. But I’m super excited to incorporate these navy ones into my new color scheme this year!Easy no sew fabric pumpkins, so easy and cute and you can make them to match any decor!

    Love this! I did the stirps and glue on these, which is fine as long as you use dark colors, but it just had a “plastic” look to them….so I really love this idea where you tuck the material inside the top (like the toilet paper pumpkins) but these give it a more “pumpkin” shape. Just bought some Fat Quarters at Walmart yesterday and will def pick some of these up at Dollar Tree next time I go! Oh, have you seen the velvet pumpkins at Dollar Tree yet? They are super cute!!! They had cream, light tan, light brown, orange, dark green, a blue/teal color and I think a yellow/gold. I am going to remove the plastic stem and replace it with a twig stem. Just a dollar too!

    How much fabric is used? I have a lot of scrap fabric and need to know exactly how much to use to make the fabric pumpkins.
