October Is An Excuse for Pumpkin Everything!

Hello October and readers!

October is here and if you're still in awe at how fast the month has arrived (did we skip September!?) Well, I guess this post won't help your bewilderment, because with October comes pumpkin everything! And while you sip that pumpkin spice latte or eat that pumpkin pie. I've got a list of felt pumpkin projects you can add to the mix! It's pumpkin overload and it's only the first day of the month.

Well if you're a pumpkin lover, the great thing about this list is that the pumpkins aren't for a limited time and won't decompose. These Pumpkins will last all year round if you want them to!

1) DIY Felted Pumpkin

This is great project even if you're just dipping your toes into needle felting. Homesteady has a full tutorial for you to follow!

2) Pumpkin Man

Pumpkins and Halloween go hand in hand and I'm doing a throw back Thursday with this one. Created on the Martha Stewart show back in 2007, decorate your house with this felt project.

3) Pom Pom Pumpkins

Okay this may not be felt per say, but this DIY is too cute not to add and it will still last forever! Turn into a garland or make different sizes and use as decoration around the home it's super easy to craft and if you've got the handy Clover Pom Pom maker well then what are you waiting for? We've also got a tutorial to help you use the tool to create perfect pompoms here!
