Easy 3D Felt Pumpkins just use glue to put together (no sewing) and make sustainable Fall decor in chic pastel colors that will last for years.
My favorite decorations are ones that I can use year after year. When I fall in love with Fall decor, I certainly don’t want to have to get rid of it just a few weeks after I put it out.
Which is why I’ve fallen in love with these simple no-sew felt pumpkins. Using just pieces of felt and a branch, they are easy crafts that will last from Halloween through Thanksgiving.
I especially love the pastel color palette that isn’t quite as bold and harsh as some pumpkin oranges. I feel that these colors (listed below) are soothing yet festive. They easily add an autumn touch to areas in my home where primary colors wouldn’t look as great.
Of course, if you like bold oranges, browns and yellows, feel free to use the colors that you love! Or even alternative Halloween colors, such as pink or purple. This felt pumpkin craft is all about you and your customization to fit your home.
Easy 3D Felt Pumpkins
- Printable template (either PDF or SVG)
- Felt sheets in 3 coordinating pale colors. In chose Peach, Guava, and Icicle (this is the brand I used)
- Fabric scissors
- Hot glue gun and clear craft glue
- Branches or driftwood pieces about 4” long
Print off the pattern template on 8.5 x 11 sheet of paper. Cut out the pattern pieces.
Cutting out one pumpkin at a time, place the pumpkin pattern on top of the felt sheet in desired color. Using a pair of fabric scissors, cut out the pumpkin shape along the solid line.
Cut 6 pieces of each pumpkin. Repeat for the remaining pumpkin patterns.
Cut out the pumpkin leaf in a coordinating green felt sheet color.
Place one pumpkin piece on top of another pumpkin piece. Lift the one side and apply a bead of glue along the outer edge.
Press the other pumpkin piece down on top to glue together.
In order to leave space in the center for the branch, avoid gluing the center of the pumpkin, start and end the bead of glue about ½” from the center on all sides.
Repeat with the other pumpkin pieces. Fold each pumpkin piece outwards and glue the inner edge together with the inner edge of the pumpkin piece next to it.
Continue until all 6 pieces are glued together.
Insert the branch into the center opening and push it down to the bottom. If the opening is too big, glue it some more to make it smaller.
Add a bit of glue to the felt leaf and press that against the inserted branch.
Repeat for the other 3D felt pumpkin shapes.
