I love the farmhouse style. And it is not just because I live on a farm. It’s light and airy and thanks to Joanna Gaines is so popular right now. Creating your own farmhouse style is not as hard as it sounds. You can easily make Your Own Farmhouse Style Fabric Pumpkins.
I found some artificial pumpkins at the dollar store and created these fun fabric pumpkins. Here is how you can make your own.

How Do I Make Farmhouse Style Fabric Pumpkins
Remove any embellishments from pumpkin (Photos 02 and 03)
Create a hole in the top of the pumpkin. Take a pair of scissors and stab a 1.5” wide circle on top of the pumpkin, remove the loosened foam to create a hole. Then take the scissors and dig out additional foam from inside the pumpkin until it’s about 2” deep.
Cut the Duck Cloth into a Circle. Fold the 13” x 13” square piece of cloth in half. Then fold it in half again. Make a quick pen compass to draw an arc. Simply tie a piece of Jute to a pen (I used the 16” piece that I use later to cover the cork).
Hold the jute string in the folded corner of the Duck Cloth with your finger. Stretch the string along one side of the folded cloth with the pen held upright to approximately 1/2 inch below the raw edges of the cloth. Press your finger down tightly on the end of the string in the corner and draw an arc with the pen. Cut along the drawn line.
Set the pumpkin in the center of the fabric circle and tuck an edge into the center hole of the pumpkin. Holding the cloth inside the hole with your finger, run your thumb down the edge of the pumpkin, pressing the cloth tight to the side of the pumpkin.
Grab the next section of cloth and fold it upwards, making a crease along the edge where your thumb is holding the cloth. Tuck in the top of this piece into the top hole of the pumpkin.
Continue all the way around the pumpkin. As the fabric gets too thick to tuck all the way into the hole, trim the excess leaving just enough to tuck inside.
Hot Glue the 16” piece of Jute String around the outside of a wine cork. Add a zig zag line of hot glue on one side of the cork (lengthwise).
Start wrapping the jute from the bottom until it covers the entire cork. Hot glue the remaining end of the string to the cork.
Cover the top of the cork with a spiral of Jute string. Take a 6” piece of Jute String, dab hot glue on one end. Fold this end over onto itself and continue rolling the jute into a spiral circle. Hot glue the remaining end to itself. Add hot glue around the top of the cork and press the Jute spiral circle on top.
Take a 13” x 2” piece of Buffalo Patterned Fabric and tie it around the cork. Hot glue the raw bottom of the cork to the top of the pumpkin. Complete.
