Here are the supplies you need for this project:
- Leftover jars…I used a sliced peaches jar and two spaghetti sauce jars
- Three 1/3 yard pieces of orange patterned fabric
- Various scraps of green fabrics and ribbons
- Black felt
- Small sharp scissors
- Paper and pumpkin faces traced out
- Tacky glue
- Embroidery floss and a sewing needle
To make these pumpkin you simply trim down the fabric to fit the jar with a little overlapping fabric in the back so you can stitch it together with embroidery floss. When the orange fabric is sewed into a sleeve, slip it over the jar, choose green fabric and ribbon to tie around the top of the jar as a “stem”.
Figure out what kind of pumpkin face designs you want. You can either trace them onto paper to make yourself a template to cut felt with or simply cut right into the felt without a template. Use a very light smear of tacky glue on the back of the felt pieces and arrange the face onto the orange fabric covering the jar. That’s it!
Then at night stick a votive candle or battery operated candle in the jar to light up the pumpkin faces.
Thanks so much to Jen, Jodie and Jamie for allowing me to share this little project with you today. Happy Halloween!
