Easy Home decor Pumpkins!

This super easy tutorial only requires a rectangle piece of fabric (of any kind), some (yarn, embroidery floss, twine,string), glue, and needle and thread



I used FabriTac and some upholstery thread for my project, the upholstery thread is  very strong and since i will be tugging on it alot i dont want my thread to break

Cut a rectangle 20″ x 10″, Fold it in half and sew down the side opposite of the fold, this can done either by sewing machine or by hand like so

turn it right side out

take so me more thread and quickly sew around the raw edges, this doesnt need to be neat as we are just going to gather the fabric by pulling onto the thread. you wont see your stitches in the end so dont even worry about it not looking beautiful at this point.

This is how it will look once its gathered.

Grab some pillow stuffing  and stuff the pumpkin, you may have to add more stuffing after you start to sew the pumpkin shut

Again sew around the edge and then gather all the fabric into the centre. Now i am switching to my darning needle and embroidery floss

I will be putting my needle throw the centre of the pumpkin to create the lines on the sides

 

put the needle through the centre and around the pumpkin 8 times so it looks like the pumpkin has 8 different sections, pull it a little tight so it indents the side of the pumpkin giving it a more pumpkin form

I’m going to be using a scrap of burlap for my stem and im using fabritac and then i will roll up the burlap

using my glue i will glue on the stem of my pumpkin, if you dont feel comfortable using glue you can of course sew it on for extra security

My little haul from Dollar Tree

I love these Acrylic trays perfect for organizing small things like makeup, nail polish, razors, nail trimmers, bandaids and essential oils

  

The Large Baskets with handles are perfect for toilet papers and paper towels, cleaning supplies and hair appliances such as hair driers and flat irons

Use some fancy Labels to label your baskets and make things easier to find for other people in the house like your…. husband who wouldnt find his head if it wasnt attached to his neck haha!                                             

Here is what we are working with :/ what ha mess! first i took everything out and disinfected the shelves, some products were actually leaking onto the wood which thankfully it hasnt been too long so there was no damage but all the more reason why you should put those items in a plastic basket or tray

Yay!! so clean! haha if only you could see the rest of the bathroom…

Here is the finish product! i have the white baskets on the left top shelf, the acrylic trays with makeup, oil, medecines,

Second shelf i have my hair dye kit in the first basket and blow dryers and flat irons in the next, combs and brush in the tray and then products and deodarants in the large basket

second shelf i have towels and excess products that arnt used as often, and my make up bag

I save the floor for the toilet paper and a laundry basket

and the top shelf has excess appliances like hot rollers and face steamers

Dollar Tree has a great selections of organization items and i plan to do ever other nook and cranny in the rest of the house!
