Who would have ever thought you could turn a crocheted doily into a pumpkin?!? Well here is the cutest Crocheted Doily Pumpkin DIY ever!
I feel in LOVe with this peice when I created and I hope you’ll love it just enough and be inspired to create one of your own!
Here’s what you need to make your own Crocheted Doily Pumpkin:
- Wooden Banner from Dollar Tree (or any other wooden piece)
- Scrapbook Paper
- Crocheted Doily
- Mod Podge
- Wooden Dowels
- Fabric strips
First, you’re going to want to trace your sign onto your scrapbook paper so you can cut it out and mod podge it onto the banner or wooden piece that you have. My banner had a piece of trim at the top so I just painted that dark brown to match my fabric ribbon that I chose to use.
While your mod podge is drying, take some orange paint and paint the doily. You can personalize this step to y our liking with a light or heavy coverage of paint. I opted for a lighter coverage.
Once your paint is dry, you’re going to want to attach it to the bottom of your banner with hot glue. I opted to put mine off-centered but at the bottom center would be cute too.
Trim any excess that is hanging off of the banner unless you opted to use the entire doily so you have a perfectly round pumpkin.
Next, I made a stem out of these wooden dowels that you can purchase at Dollar Tree or Walmart. I just trimmed three pieces down to size and wrapped them in some of my brown fabric strips. Once they were wrapped, I hot glued them to the top of the crocheted doily pumpkin.
Using some green scrapbook paper, I just free-handed some ovals and cut them out to resemble leaves. Glue them to the base of your stems.
Now we’re just adding the finishing touches!
With coordinating fabric, make a small slit at on the edge and simply rip the length of your fabric. This is going to create ribbon strips. I made several of these. The more you use, the fuller your bow will be.
Layering the strips on top of each other alternating colors (I used a brown and an orange fabric) tie them all together with a piece of twine in the middle. Glue it the base of the crocheted doily pumpkin stem and fluff to your liking.
If you need a visual on how to create the bow, HERE is the FB video that show it in more detail.
I did end up adding a raffia bow to the top and a small banner. All of those items came from Dollar Tree and I simply used market to write “FALL”.
