Funky Pumpkins - Kid's Art Class

 We made the cutest pumpkins in art class this week!  I traced and cut out large circles (pizza pan size) onto a graphic black and white fabric. The kids sewed around the edge of the circles and then pulled the ends of the string to gather the fabric at the neck.  They then stuffed their pumpkins and tied off the opening (leaving a little space for the stem) and sewed through the bottom of the pumpkins with orange yarn to create that ribbed pumpkin look.  To finish them, I used hot glue to attach a felt piece and stick to the top.  Then we tied raffia and ribbon bows and added curled cloth-covered wire for a cute accent.  The kids were really proud of their creations.  I love how they turned out.
