Making Felted Pumpkins

 Making Felted Pumpkins

To make felted pumpkins you will need:

wool roving in pumpkin colors
left over yarn, wool works best but other fibers will work too
pantyhose
orange and green embroidery floss or pearl cotton
long embroidery needle
scissors.

You can also make Dia de los Muertos skulls too, by making white felted balls. Cut 2 oval pieces of black felt for eyes, then stitch a nose, mouth and decorative designs like flowers and x’s with colorful embroidery floss.

By the way, one of my favorite sources for wool roving is Outback Fibers located in the Texas Hill country.

    Great little decorations. I need to get some rovings and make these.

  3. Great tutorial, Judy. One question. After you wash (felt) the balls in the washing machine, do you allow the balls to dry or work on them damp?

    I wanna try this!

  4. Thanks Diana,

    it’s best to let them dry or the needle is harder to pull through the ball. They dry pretty quickly and you can even put a bunch in the dryer and let them bounce around for a 15 minutes.
