This is Michelle from Our Crafty Mom sharing a fun fall or Halloween craft project. One of the things I love about these pumpkins, is you can easily remove the fabric and change it out for Christmas, making them ornaments. Just remove the wood stem and add some holiday picks. I love crafts that serve double duty!
Fall is absolutely my favorite time of year. I’m sure one of those reasons is because I live in New Hampshire, where the State comes alive during this season. The foliage is breathtaking, and there are fall festivals and craft shows just about every weekend through Thanksgiving.
I love to decorate both the inside and outside of my home, so I have to be very mindful of a budget. One of the ways to keep costs down is to shop at thrift stores. I usually find round embroidery hoops for a dollar or two, but this is the first time I found rectangle ones. I immediately thought of pumpkins when I saw the shape.

DIY Tools Needed:
1. SEPARATE THE EMBROIDERY HOOPS.
The embroidery hoop has two pieces. Remove the interior hoop by opening the metal screw along the top. Set aside.
2. ADD THE FABRIC TO THE EMBROIDERY HOOP.
Place the larger hoop onto the fabric with the back of the fabric up. This will make it easier to cut any remnants.
3. place the second hoop into the frame.
Place the interior embroidery hoop into the outer hoop and tighten the screw so it is nice and tight. You can pull it tight so it removes any wrinkles.
4. cut off any excess fabric.
Use fabric scissors to cut off any excess fabric along the back of the embroidery hoop.
5. ADD A STEM AND RAFfIA.
They are so simple to make and inexpensive too. I made four of these in under an hour. They can also be hung on the wall if you like.
I hope you enjoyed these DIY embroidery hoop pumpkins. I plan to add the Halloween ones to a tiered tray display. They are the perfect size for that.
