DIY Fabric Covered Pumpkins

I love this time of year when the weather is cooler, and the leaves are starting to fall. I also love decorating for this season. I can’t pass up buying a bunch of pumpkins for my home. I recently bought a few foam pumpkins from a dollar store. I was going to paint them, but then I decided they would look even better covered with beautiful fabric.


Continue reading below for the tutorial.


  • 6″ Foam Pumpkins
  • Fabric
  • Scissors
  • Decoupage Glue
  • Paint Brush
  • Wax Paper or Parchment Paper (optional)



  • Gather all the supplies.
  • Cut the fabric into strips about 2 inches wide and 6 inches long. Make sure to cut enough strips to cover the pumpkin.


  • Brush a thin layer of decoupage glue where you will place the first piece of fabric.


  • Lay the fabric strip on the pumpkin, and then brush it with more decoupage glue. Use your fingers or the paint brush to remove any wrinkles in the fabric.



  • Continue the previous steps until the pumpkin is completely covered. Make sure to overlap each fabric strip.
  • Place the pumpkin on a piece of wax or parchment paper, so that it won’t stick to anything while it dries.


My three pumpkins turned out beautifully. I love the graphics on the fabric as well as the colors. Since the pumpkins aren’t real, I can display them for months and not have to worry about them rotting!



How are you all decorating your pumpkins this year? Share your ideas in the comment section.
