Squash Goals

We made these mini felt pumpkins out of pom poms, felt, and embroidery floss. While we often make our own pom poms, our pom-pom maker is meant for extra small pom poms. We knew that size wouldn’t work for this project. So, this time, we used large wool pom poms in tangerine and white from Benzie Design. These large wool pom poms are the perfect size for making mini pumpkins!

To make our DIY pumpkins look more realistic, we used embroidery floss to create lines on our pumpkins. Lastly, we used two different colors of felt to create the pumpkin stems. We love mixing up colors and creating different looks. Of course, we had to create a classic orange pumpkin. And white pumpkins too! Those have become very popular in recent years. We’ve linked to all the colors we used below, but feel free to use whatever colors you like best for your mini felt pumpkins.

We always encourage you to experiment when you’re crafting! And we love seeing what you make, too. If you want to share your creations with us, just post them on your Instagram page and use the hashtag #MadeWithLia. You can also click on the hashtag to see what others are making.
