Santa Hat on a Pumpkin

Hi Everyone!

Santa Hats, not just for trees! Here’s a quick idea for a Santa Hat Tree Topper. Why not put it on a PUMPKIN? Below are the steps I took to do just that. OR you can watch the tutorial on my FACEBOOK page if you click HERE.

I started with a plain brown paper mache pumpkin. I used a plaid flannel fabric to cover the pumpkin with. I cut the stem out and that left a hole to put all the extra fabric into.

I used a white floral pick with swirls attached to it and cut off all the swirls. There were four sections of swirls. You will see a picture below. I used the actual stem of the pick and secured it inside the pumpkin for a brace for the Santa Hat. You can see it above inside the pumpkin.

Next, I hot glued the Santa Hat onto the pumpkin leaving some room for me to add the swirls and red berries.

I evenly distributed the four sections of swirls all around the pumpkin and hot glued them underneath the Santa Hat.

Next, I added the shiny red berries in between the swirls.

The red berries do not show up well in photos, but they do in real life because they are so shiny. I may go back and add more evergreen to this pumpkin next week. But I did go ahead and take it to our Vintage Antique Craft Booth in the meantime.

I added a dash of sparkle by using a TOTALLY DAZZLED pin in the center of the Santa Hat Buckle.
Here it is all finished. Not the best picture, but you can see the whole hat in this one.

Below are the pictures of our booth. Our SANTA HAT PUMPKIN is center stage.

Gold Sequin Covered Pumpkin with Owl

Hi Everyone!

Here’s another paper mache pumpkin I made but instead of painting it, I covered it with fabric. I chose a gold sequin fabric to match all the gold embellishments. Everything was purchased at Hobby Lobby. I did a FACEBOOK LIVE while I made this pumpkin that you can watch here: Sequin Fabric Pumpkin Video

This is another idea from my Hero/Shero, Kathy from Royale Funky Junque on Facebook. Please go follow her page. For this pumpkin, you do not paint it or anything. You do have to cut a hole in the top and remove the stem. Make it big enough where you can put the excess fabric inside. I used a yard of fabric cut in half along the folded edge from the bolt. Buy fabric everything at Hobby Lobby when they run their sales.

Pull the fabric as tight as you can and hot glue it to the pumpkin. Put all the excess fabric inside the pumpkin. Voila, you are ready to embellish. MUCH FASTER than painting.

Embellish it to your heart’s content. I chose the same ivory flowers I had been using bought in the Christmas section of Hobby Lobby. I also used all the same picks. The only difference with this pumpkin I found a sparkling owl to put on top. It is the cutest owl with the cutest eyes!

Please go and watch my video for more helpful tips. You can see in action how I made this. Thank you again for reading my blog! Click Here
