Three finished stuffed pumpkins.

Easy Stuffed Pumpkins'Tis the season for pumpkins (almost)! A great way to use up excess fabric pieces for a beautiful fall decoration.

 

The finished pumpkin.

Yarn Pumpkin-Shaped DecorationMany people know how to make mache pumpkins out of paper, glue and balloon. Also, some people use thread, glue and a balloon to make pumpkins, but which result in a spherical shape, and, accordingly, very vaguely resemble pumpkins. I got the idea to combine these two methods and make a pumpkin out of yarn and glue with a real pumpkin shape. It's strange that no one has come up with this idea yet. I also want to share with you an idea of how to make such a pumpkin as quickly as possible.
