Next weekend, I am planning a Fall Craft Party with some girlfriends. I am so excited!! I have been super inspired lately by some very inventive and cute Fall crafts that I've discovered on Pinterest. Check out my "Crafty" board here. I am planning on doing the leaf garland, a version of the fabric pumpkins that I blogged about earlier this Fall, and a Fall banner. I will make examples of these this week, and then we can make more together at the party. :) I have already made some pumpkins, and my results are below. I love them!!! And they only took like 30 minutes to make all three. Even my husband was impressed!
Here is the fabric I started with. One of the perks of being an interior design student is that I have a TON of fabric samples, which are perfect for all sorts of craft projects. I have mine organized by color in my office, so I just pulled out some that were orange/rust/red - perfect for Fall.
I stuffed a little polyfill batting into the fabric, pulled up the corners then sides to make a pumpkin shape, and then tied the top tightly with jute twine. Voila!
