Fabric pumpkins are a must have for all seasons. I believe once they might have been good for just Halloween or Thanksgiving but I now you can see them for Christmas as well. I just think they help you get in the holiday spirit. I decided to make holiday pumpkins this year for all occasions. I have pumpkins in all sizes, shapes and different materials. I always get the real pumpkins which we carve and then I get fake pumpkins at my local craft store and get very creative with them. All I have left was to make no sew fabric pumpkins.
The no sew fabric pumpkins I decided to make was super easy and fast to make. I really don’t always have a lot of time to take out the sewing machine and do them that way. I decided to do it a different way in which I could do it while the kiddos where eating lunch. Fast and easy is the name of the game at time when you are a busy mom.
I first cut the fabric in a square . Followed by tying both end of the fabric. The closer to the center you tie the fabric the smaller the pumpkin. The closer to the edge of the fabric you tie the fabric the longer the pumpkin.
Then just turn the fabric inside out.
Then you will be able to stuff the pumpkin with batting.
Once you have it as big as you want it you can hot glue the seam together.
You can grab an embroidery needle with thread or twine and go all the way through the middle of the pumpkin from the bottom. You will circle around the pumpkin around six times to make it look more pumpkin like and pull tight.
Now you have a no sew fabric pumpkins!
Halloween in upon us and its not only about decorating but also having a little treat for yourself. I decided to make a Halloween candy corn sugar scrub! Its great to have something that will add that little extra holiday decor in the bathroom and make my skin soft. Also you can pass up targets dollar bin which have these cute milk bottles. Their are only three key products you will need to use to make a sugar scrub.
- 3 1/2 cups of white sugar
- 1/4 cup of baby oil
- 1/4 cup of baby wash
- Food Coloring, yellow and orange
- You will need to combine sugar, baby oil and baby wash.
- I separated the mixture into three smaller bowls.
- Add more sugar if needed to make the scrub fluffier.
- Mix small amounts of food coloring to each bowl.
- Add the yellow scrub first to the milk bottles, followed by orange then white.
- Keep the candy corn scrub in a tight sealed container for about 2-3 weeks then it will be ready to use.
I used Target’s milk bottles found in the dollar bin. Fellow blogger friends challenge each other to do something with the milk bottles. Do you want to see see what my fellow bloggers did?

Ghost are one of the frightful things during Halloween. I decided to make my own tortured soul ghost and place him in my mason jar for safe keeping. I used little things around the house. I sometimes get very surprise what you can come up with when you are in need of it. I love making Halloween mason jar every year. I always want to top the year before mason jar.
I have wooden skewer and for the life of me I could not find them anywhere. I own two different size skewers and I could not find one of them in my craft closet. Some might say maybe I have too many crafts but I just think maybe I just need to reorganize it. hehe. I had a dilema of what to use to get my littl ghost head stand up. I then saw my son juice box straw and light bulb went off. I used the straw and attached it to a small foam ball. The foam ball I found seemed to have gotten a little bit beat up. I believe at one time my son might have gotten his hand on it at one time or other.
I hot glued the straw to the lid. I used cheese cloth to cover the foam ball. I made eyes and a mouth with a black sharpy.
I added a tea light to add a glow to my little Halloween mason jar ghost. It fits perfectly with my Halloween decor.
Mason Jars are very popular and you can just about do anything with them! I decided to make another Halloween inspired mason jar crafts. I made a Halloween pumpkin mason jar. It only took me about 30 minutes to make and Halloween pumpkin mason jar craft and it gave me the perfect excuse to buy candy corn early.
The first thing I did was take the lid of the mason jar and hot glue batting to it, by doing this I make sure it does not go all over the place while trying to cover it with fabric. At times batting can be very slippery.
I then got pumpkin fabric to cover the batting which I also hot glued to the lid of the mason jar. I made sure to pull the fabric tight around the lid.
On the top of the mason jar I hot glue to little pieces of sticks. I do believe this helps makes it look more like a pumpkin.
Finally I got candy corn pumpkins and original candy corn and placed them inside the jar. Of course I did notice a few missing and a little boy grinning with mischief.
If you noticed I spray painted the lid gold. Gold is the color this year and I could not help but paint it gold which looks way better than the silver lid.
I hope to make many more Halloween inspired mason jar this season. What do you think I should make now?! Stay tune for more.
