It’s officially fall online and in the stores, so it’s time to share these embroidery hoop pumpkins. Create these in a natural, painted, or stained look for a versatile piece of fall decor.
For this creative fall craft idea, you will need a couple of embroidery hoops, paint, felt for leaves, and a stem of some kind. Let’s get started because this is a FUN afternoon craft.
Embroidery Hoop Pumpkins for an Easy Crafting Win
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, creativity comes in spurts. I’m always crafting but with the move from Seattle to Austin, TX, I’ve been creative in packing boxes, donating to charities, and well – doing everything other than crafting!
If you, too, have a lot on your plate, a quick “crafting win” like these DIY pumpkins can be a real pick me up. And if you love to hoard craft supplies, you likely have everything you need on hand right now. Psst: check the Dollar Tree for embroidery hoop sets but also the thrift store – I tend to find quite a few there.

Tips for Making This Creative Pumpkin Idea for Your Decor
- The Dollar Tree and thrift stores are great places to check for embroidery hoops to save some pennies, but sometimes Amazon has really great deals on embroidery hoop sets like this. If you want to sell these, that’s 4 sets from one pack!
- I don’t recommend using the plastic embroidery hoops because they tend to slide around when assembling. If that’s what you have on hand, use a strong glue (like E6000) alongside the hot glue.
- You can paint, stain, or leave these natural depending on your decor and where you’re placing these. For a modern farmhouse pumpkin style, make one natural and paint one black (with or without distressing).
- If you have faux leaves from other crafts, use those instead of the felt. I had packed everything up but might change them out next year to use the fall leaves I’ve saved.
- Other ideas for the pumpkin stems are corks, twigs from the yard, thimbles, and even a dowel wrapped in twine with more layers at the bottom to thicken it up.
