|I hung the wreath on the storm door so it could be seen from the road.|
I prefer a grapevine wreath to one of foam or straw because it's
lightweight and stands up to all kinds of weather.
|Fabric pumpkins are surprisingly easy to make. These three took me about an hour, |
from ironing the fabric to gluing on the driftwood stems. Start with a long rectangle,
stitch or glue the short ends together, then gather the long ends and stuff.
|Drapery weight fabric works best for pumpkins. These sit under a porch roof, so |
they are protected from wet weather. I stuffed them with filling from an old pillow.
|Don't ask me why I had bright orange polka dot fabric in the back of |
my fabric closet, but it came in handy to repeat the wreath's polka dot motif.
|The fabric for this pumpkin is a old linen tablecloth. The silk |
leaves and embroidery thread wrap-arounds are optional.
