Glamourous Velvet Pumpkin

Glamourous Velvet Pumpkin

I’m so ready for Fall…..

Although it’s the middle of August…..

I’m ready for the summer heat to go away for a while…….

So to help bring in that autumn cool air and maybe a pumpkin pie or two…..I’ve decided to make this beautiful velvet pumpkin….I’m calling it ┬áThe “Glamourous Velvet Pumpkin”…..

yes…. presenting to you my glamour pumpkin in all it’s glory!

#2 glamourous pumpkin

I just love all the velvet pumpkins I have been seeing on pinterest….

there are so many ideas…..

so I

decided to make one but with a little twist….

well maybe a big twist…..

I added some bling…..BIG TIME BLING!

#3 glamourous pumpkin

I’m just lovin it……no matter where I put this glamour queen of a pumpkin….

(believe me…..I have had this glamour queen in my master bedroom….it looked marvelous….in the entry way…..it looked marvelous…..in the breakfast nook……it also looked marvelous…..)

So I’m definitely going to have to make another one or two for my other rooms…..

#4 glamourous pumpkin

all that bling is from a rather large dangling earring I had……

that’s loaded with rhinestones…..

You won’t believe how easy this glamourous pumpkin was to make……

For this project I started with……..

#6 charger plate

using a charger to draw a circle on the wrong side of crushed wine velvet….found it at Hobby Lobby (my favorite store) in the fabric fall section…..got it for 40 Percent off

Woo hoo!

filling pumpkin

Sew around the top of fabric about 1/4 inch from edge…..I used a doll needle to do this…..

made it easier….then fill to the top with poly fill…..

ribbon and pipe cleaner

For the stem…..I used 2 pipe cleaners twisted and bent in half and with my handy hot glue gun I wrapped green satin ribbon around the pipe cleaners….securing it with the hot glue inside the top of the pumpkin……

finish closing up the pumpkin by sewing up hole as small as possible around stem…..

curled leaves

the gold roses are made from satin that I twisted and sewed together……you can buy the leaves in a package…..they are used for making corsages……(I also found these at Hobby Lobby)……use a pencil to curl the wire on each leaf…..

adding earring

Using a hot gun…..I adding my piece of jewelry right next to the stem….

then leaves and roses…..

outside picture

I just had to take a picture outside in the sunlight

….oh yes….showing off all that bling….
