Making felted pumpkins tutorial


To make felted pumpkins you will need: wool roving, yarn, pantyhose, embroidery floss, embroidery needle, and scissors.





You can also make little day of the dead skulls too, by making white felted balls adding black felt eyes and stitch nose, mouth and decorative designs like flowers and x's with colorful embroidery floss.

By the way, one of my favorite sources for wool roving is Outback Fibers.

Jennifer from Canada left a comment on my felted pumpkin post asking about the stitching on the skulls so I thought I would post a few close ups to show how I stitched mine. I think one could really do any kind of colorful stitching and they would look great.
