DT Wall Hanging Felt Pumpkin Makeover

The Great Ful Pumpkin

I seen on my FB feed an idea of taking a pumpkin and writing on it something that you are grateful or thankful for everyday from now til Halloween. Obviously the author of the post AND ME think the world would be a better place if we were thankful/grateful more then just on Thanksgiving. I kind of took that idea and ran with it in a crafty way. "It's The Great-Ful Pumpkin, Charlie Brown" Show gratitude even if you get ROCKS !!!


I started with a Dollar Tree foam pumpkin, painted it to tone down the color. (Why are they in your face orange ?)

Charlie Brown is a pill bottle I glued 1/2 a styrofoam sphere to the top, so when I place the Sheet (Felt) over him it would be rounded. I glue felt to the bottle and added Gnome Shoes (See The Sock Gnome Page) You don't need the shoes !! I then just glue white felt over him for the sheet and added some black felt dots

The sign is a DT chalkboard I wrote on with a paint pen. The rocks were from when I went Trick or Treating last year :D

DT Wall Hanging Felt Pumpkin Makeover
  • Glue some felt/material to the edge of the back of your pumpkin. Leave the center so you can stuff it with polyfill. Leave the bottom open so you can add the legs.

  • Glue dowel to the inside of your pumpkins where you want the legs

  • I rolled and glued some purple felt into a tube. I made the tubes bigger then the dowel so I could scrunch them up. Put them around the dowel and glue to the inside of the pumpkin. 

  • Stuff the pumpkin lightly and glue closed.

  • The shoes are the Gnome Boots I made bigger. The pattern and directions can be found on the Sock Gnome Page. (Your going to need to enlarge them.)

  • Insert and glue the legs into the boots

  • Add ribbons and embellishments and your done.

Light Up Burlap Pumpkin

Burlap Light Up Pumpkin
This was a Dollar Tree find.
Originally is was a somewhat tacky light up foam pumpkin covered in orange glitter. I painted it with a burlap colored paint so the orange would not show through AND it sealed the glitter so it wasn't EVERYWHERE. Then I simply glued burlap to it and added some twine, green burlap leaves and floral tape covered wire.

Yarn Pumpkins

Not all my crafts turn out exactly how I want them to. I tried the pool noodle technique with yarn it was a FLOP. The yarn was not stiff enough to hold up.


How I fixed it

For this one I just sewed a running stitch around a circular piece of fabric. Placed polyfill on top of it,  pulled it tight and tied it off.

These were made with a styrofoam ball and pieces of fabric. I will try to get Step by Step Instructions soon

Make It FUN !!!



Soak your pumpkins in bleach after carving to prevent them from molding and they will last longer. 1 teaspoon bleach for every 1 gallon of water into a larger container and stick your pumpkin inside. Let them soak for 20-30 minutes and pull out and allow to air dry.
After it's dry spraying the cut surfaces with hairspray can also slow down the decaying process.

Pin your image onto the pumpkin. Cut slits in the pattern paper to allow it to curve with the shape of the pumpkin. Place the pins on the part of the pattern you will be cutting out. 

Pumpkin Carving
Poke Holes Following Pattern

Use a pumpkin poking tool, nail, toothpick. etc. to poke small holes through the paper, tracing the lines of the pattern.

Remove the image when finished and dust some baby powder or cornstarch over the area so the holes will be more apparent.

Flaming Pumpkin Insert Toilet Paper Roll In

Place a roll of toilet paper inside your pumpkin. . Soak it with kerosene, throw in a match and STAND BACK !!!!
Adult Assistance Required but the Kids Love this. We set it on a concrete driveway up away from the trick or treaters and placed a piece of plywood underneath it so it wouldn't singe the concrete. Burns for a couple of hours.

Upside Down Bat Pumpkin

Hanging Bat Pumpkin

Keep in mind when drawing or picking out your pattern that you need enough spots attached to the pumpkin so it's still secure. In the case of this bat. The wings and the ears are not carved all the way around, otherwise your just going to have a circle when you are done

Pumpkin Layering

Rather than cutting holes all the way through a pumpkin's skin, some people remove layers of the skin to create designs. The deeper you carve the lighter the effect. Just take off the "skin" and it will be darker in those areas. 

Pumpkin Layering

HINT: When possible leave the pieces that are cut clean through in place until after you've done your layering. This will give the pumpkin more security while you are layering.
