Fall pumpkins are in this year, also making them shabby chic is amazing. In addition to that, I had some old dollar tree items that I thought would look awesome as some pumpkins. I’ve definitely been on a roll with these pumpkin crafts as of late. So with that said, let me show you how to make these Fall Pumpkins!

Also, here’s what you’ll need:
- Hot glue gun
- White yarn
- Pine cones and fall flora
- Scrap fabric
- Wire sponge and dollar tree pineapple
Firstly, start by unwinding the tinsel from the pineapple and removing the top. Then, you’re left with a pineapple ‘skeleton’ and this is what you will wrap your white yarn around.
As you can see in this photo, the body of the pineapple has the perfect ridges for wrapping the yarn. Start by tying the yarn to the body of the pineapple, securing it. Furthermore, you won’t need the hot glue for this until the very end. Make sure you are wrapping the yarn tightly so it won’t come apart. After, once you’ve reached the bottom, glue the bottom to keep it together.
Secondly, add your embellishments to the top of the pumpkin. Also, this is where you’ll add your scrap fabric. I personally, used some lace and white scraps with a burlap rose. Then, I added the acorns and some fall flora and an orange bow.
Finally, you have the first of your fall pumpkins! Let’s move onto the next.
To start this pumpkin, start by pushing the wire sponge upwards. By doing this, you can create the shape you desire.
Lastly, you’ll add your extras like your pine cones, scrap fabric and moss. All of these are once again, hot glued to the pumpkin.
In conclusion, you now have two fall pumpkins from recycled materials.
