burlap pumpkin sign and special offer

I have seen these burlap pumpkin signs at boutiques and I thought they were just so cute that I had to make one myself.  They are really easy and cheap to make.

All you need is burlap, paint, batting, wire, and hot glue.

First draw a pumpkin shape on the burlap and cut out two pieces.

Then paint a Halloween or Fall-ish design.  (I used a metallic acrylic paint)

After the paint dries, glue the two burlap pieces together.  Glue around the edge about an inch in, and make sure to leave a space at the stem open so you can stuff in the batting.

When the glue is dry, start stuffing in the batting.   After you are satisfied with the way your pumpkin looks glue the two stem pieces together.

Now all you have to do is poke holes for the wire, loop the wire through the holes, and twist the ends up around the wire.

So easy! And so cute!
