Shabby Pumpkins and Ornamental Cabbage

Monday, September 9, 2013

I really like all all of the fabric pumpkins I've been seeing around blog land. I wanted to make some that were quick and easy and involved no sewing. I found this great tutorial at Lucy's beautiful blog  Craftberry Bush. It was right up my alley, quick, cute and no sew. So I made a few.


In addition to making the pumpkins I tried to make an ornamental cabbage from leftover drop cloth fabric. This was my first attempt and while I think it's kinda cute it needs some tweaking.





Once I work on it and am satisfied with the results I'll make a few more and do a tutorial. I made the pumpkins from burlap and drop cloth scraps, Once I gathered up the fabric I liked the way the stem ruffled, so I frayed  the edges and just tied a natural colored hemp twine around the stem.


I'm looking forward to using these in my fall vignettes. They're so simple and fun, I'll mix them in with my other pumpkins, I think they'll add a nice texture.





Thanks for stopping by, I have fall decorating fever now. How about you? I'll be joining these great link ups this week,

  2. You did a wonderful job with both the pumpkins and the cabbages, Karen! The cabbages could almost double for roses as well. I have some natural colored burlap, I may give these a try! :)

  9. Well, I haven't been home, been traveling on the east coast. Once I settle down from all of it, now that I'm home, I am sure I will start pulling out all of the fall vignettes. A little early Halloween decor never hurt anyone, right? xo Rhonda

  18. They're adorable! Fall is my favorite time of the year, but I haven't had time to start decorating or creating yet. Love these so much, I'm starting a pumpkin Pinterest board.
