I decided to make this easy dollar store fabric pumpkin for a fun farmhouse fall craft with just a few items from the Dollar Tree. I couldn’t be happier!
Dollar Store Fabric Pumpkin
Here at Ruffles and Rain Boots, we are all about that fast and easy fall craft this year. I mean, who wants to spend ages and ages making something? Not me. If it can be done fast, that’s what I want. Also, inexpensive calls my name. So, the idea of making this dollar store fabric pumpkin being easy, fast and inexpensive? That’s perfect.
So to the Dollar Tree I headed. Now I know that Dollar Tree, Dollar General and Dollar Store are officially different places (along with Family Dollar and 99-Cent Store…the list goes on and on). But the deal is, they all have about the same stuff most of the time. So, if you can’t find exactly these supplies, just get something close. You’ll still love it. If you’re ready to make a cut fabric covered pumpkin craft, let’s get started.

Tips to Make Farmhouse Pumpkin
- First, think about the size of the pumpkin. I used a 3-inch foam pumpkin, but if your store only has 4-inch pumpkins, roll with it and just make your cloth a bit larger. Using this same method, you could, in theory, make a fabric covered pumpkin in any size.
- When you pick your fabric, be sure to pick something thick, particularly if you’re going to use a white fabric, because otherwise the orange of the pumpkin will show through. That’s why I chose to use duck cloth for this particular farmhouse pumpkin. However, if you’re not finding a thick cloth that you like, you can double-layer your fabric like I did on this buffalo check fabric pumpkin I made.
- If your wine cork doesn’t want to fit inside the hole at the end (there is a lot of fabric going in that hole, admittedly), you can always just put the bow really low on the wine cork then hot glue the wine cork to the top of the fabric. The cork doesn’t have to go all the way in the hole.
