Leopard Fabric Pumpkin

We’re starting to see pumpkins piling up outside the grocery store- guess Fall is upon us!  I always get a kick out of how many varieties there are and especially love the miniature ones.



I had plans for this big guy though- I wanted to turn him into a leopard fabric pumpkin, kinda like those plushy velvet ones I’ve seen in years’ past.  I had leopard fabric left over from my wooden stool project.
I had my doubts as to how this was going to turn out.  After I finished wrapping the pumpkin in fabric, the stem was too short to be seen,  and it didn’t look very pumpkin-y, more like a bowling ball.  So, I created a stem, improvising with a cardboard toilet paper roll and some tree bark.
I used spray adhesive to adhere the bark to the cardboard roll, then added one real green leaf and a fake gold leaf.


I think adding those natural elements helped make it look more like a pumpkin.
I’ve got the leopard pumpkin sitting in our entryway for now, next to one of the velvety kind that I found at Hobby Lobby.
I want to try some other fabrics, but this is a start!
Have a great week friends!

  1. Cute. I noticed Dollar General had a leopard print pumpkin the other day. I wish I would have bought one. I think it was only $3. Maybe I will have to go grab me one before they run out. I did a fall post a few years back where I used some leopard print in my fall decor. See I knew back then that leopard went with fall. Ha. Happy fall!

  2. Megan, I love your leopard pumpkin! So clever and fun. I like pretty much leopard anything and now I need a leopard pumpkin. I will have to try this. Your entry way looks beautiful and festive for Fall.
