I have seen these little velvet punkins everywhere and decided to whip up a few...I am lazy when it comes to crafting so the easier the better and let me tell ya this is the easiest DIY ever! I found this gold velvet fabric at a garage sale a year or so ago for like $2.00 or $3.00 so I dug it out of my pile of scraps and made some.
Soooooo I actually did this 2 different ways and when you look at them at the end you really can't tell the difference. First way....I took a square of fabric and ran a long gathering stitch all the way around in a circle (not perfectly by any stretch of the imagination)
I pulled the threads to gather up all the fabric and left a pretty big opening.
I filled the opening with batting and then scrunched it up and tied it with some ribbon...done!!
The second way I made them is the NO SEW way! Take your square of fabric grab some batting...plop it in the middle and gather up the fabric and cinch it with a rubber band! Add ribbon or raffia. The punkin pictured on the left is the no sew and the one on the right is the sewn one (I used a little bit bigger piece of fabric so it made a larger Punkin).
Here is one of the Punkins on my fall table. I left the edges raw and it looks rustic and fun.
