I was looking through Pinterest for Fall decorating ideas when I came across these cute SILK SCARF PUMPKINS. I decided to give it a try and make some for myself.
I had some pumpkins here and bought 2 more at the Dollar Tree. I bought 2 cheap scarves. One from a thrift store which was silk and another from the Dollar Tree which was polyester. I also found 2 nice picks at Michael's to use on the tops.
The trick is to make sure you cut your scarf pieces small enough. The first one that I did the pieces were a little big. I had a hard time making it smooth. I also found that the polyester fabric was trickier to apply. The silk went on nicely. I used orange pumpkins because the were cheap but if you want the scarf colors to show up better I would suggest using the more expensive white pumpkins.
I think that they came out very nice.
