Polka-dot Pumpkin

feltedpumpkin

Here’s the centerpiece I came up with for our apple-picking party and harvest dinner earlier this month: a needle-felted pumpkin. I took small pieces of wool roving, maybe 1/4 inch wide and a few inches long,¬† jabbed the ends into the pumpkin and then wrappedthe roving¬†into a spiral to make circles, needle felting as I went along to keep it in place. The balls surrounding the pumpkin are wet felted. The larger ones are felted around styrofoam balls.

I was crunched for time so just did the one pumpkin, but I think this could be a cute idea for a whole bunch of pumpkins… you could spell out BOO! or other words, or use black roving to make spooky silhouettes.
