Looking to spruce up your fall decor? Make a dollar store run for foam pumpkins then use an old or thrifted sweater (and flannel!) to cover them up! Add a stem and voila: instant fall decor that is SO cozy!
Repurposing clothing and making dollar store crafts cute is totally our jam… so we combined the two and bam: sweater and flannel covered pumpkins were born! I was able to cover 10 of these various cuties in half an hour and with a sharp pair of craft scissors– no sew for the win!

HOW TO MAKE Sweater + FLANNEL Covered Pumpkins
Making these were SO easy and I made them all in less than 30 minutes, busy mom win!
- Cut sweater or flannel apart by seams.
- Lay pumpkin over piece of sweater or flannel and simply pull fabric around pumpkin.
- Start pressing fabric into the foam with sharp (closed) scissors, as shown in photo… no glue needed as fabric gets tightly wedged into foam pumpkin!
- Once completed wrapped, hot glue stem or stick into place on top of pumpkin.
Can we all agree this is the easiest craft ever?
I love the texture of the sweater that adds instant cozy to these little pumpkins!
