It may look and feel like summer on the outside, but it is beginning to look like fall on the inside at my house. I have been playing around, repainting, and recovering my old fall decorations today while watching football.
I really need some neutral colored pumpkins to go on my fireplace. I found these cloth pumpkins and a ball in a bag while I was shopping this week at the Thrift Store, and I thought that they would be perfect to recover. You could also use fiberfill to stuff the DIY drawer knob pumpkins!
The hardest part of making pumpkins is finding a way to make the stems.
When I went out to my garage to look for something in my box of
junk supplies, I saw these drawer knobs. If I find a bag of drawer pulls or drawer knobs that are interesting looking, I will grab them. I am always repainting and revamping furniture, and I know I will use them, plus buying them this cheap will save me money.
I thought these rustic knobs would be kind of cool to use as the stems. I add some screws to the knobs so that I could tie the fabric around them.
I first dismembered my jack-o-lanterns.
I cut pieces of fabric scraps that I had to cover the pumpkins. I wrapped the fabric around the pumpkin, Placed the knob in the center and tied it with a piece of twine.
I made these DIY Drawer Knob Pumpkins in just a few minutes, and it sure beats having to get out of the house to go shopping.
