We used some pastel and vibrant colors for our pumpkin garland. A little bit different than normal fall colors, but still very autumn-like. Consider using other colors for your pumpkins, such as yellows, pinks or blues, to make an untraditional pumpkin garland to fit your house decor.

How to Make Felt Pumpkin Garland


three pieces of felt with thread and scissors


Step 1

three stacks of cut felt pumpkins

Trace the pumpkin template onto felt using a pen. Cut out multiple pumpkins in each color you want. The number of pumpkins you need will depend on how long you want your finished garland to be. You can guess at how many pumpkins you need by measuring the space you want to hang the garland from. Add in a few more inches if you want the garland to swag down in the middle. Then divide by the width of the pumpkin template.

Step 2

Stack the felt shapes on top of each other in the order they will appear in your pumpkin garland.

Step 3

Move the stack of felt pieces to your sewing machine.

Step 4

Pull the top and bottom threads from the bobbin on the sewing machine a few inches before sewing. This will allow for thread to be on the end for hanging the garland.

Step 5

Choose a line on the sewing machine’s plate to guide your sewing. It can be to the right or left of the needle, but use it to line up each felt shape.

Step 6

Sew with a straight stitch, adding felt shapes as you go. If there is space between the felt shapes, continue “sewing air” to form hanging thread between the shapes.

Step 7
