DIY Pumpkin Garden Flag
DIY Pumpkin Garden Flag
Now that the kiddos are almost back to school I am thinking about all the fall things! I wanted a cute pumpkin garden flag for my front yard but couldn’t find one that I was in love with, so I decided to make one! This flag is so simple to make and turned out so cute! Let me show you how to make one for your yard!
- Blank burlap flag ( You can get one HERE)
- Pumpkin pattern ( I buy the wooden ones from dollar tree)
- Orange material (The size will vary depending on the size of your pumpkin pattern)
- Buffalo Check material for the center of the pumpkin
- Large button
- Stick ( This is for the stem but you could also cut one out of material)
- Fabric bond hot glue ( You can get this HERE)
- Hot glue gun
Step one: Lay the wooden pumpkin pattern onto the orange material, trace it and cut it out.
Step two: Next, cut a piece of buffalo check material for the center of the pumpkin. To do this I just lady the material over the pumpkin then drew a curved line from the top dip in the pumpkin to the bottom dip in the pumpkin. I did this on each side and then cut out the material. Once the material is cut out, glue it to the center of the pumpkin. For a better understanding of this watch the YouTube video using the link at the top of this page.
Step 3: Once the pumpkin is glued together use the fabric bond hot glue to glue it to the blank burlap flag. Make sure to center your pumpkin where you want it. Keep it low enough to add the stem. I also think it would be cute to stencil something like harvest above the pumpkin. I wasn’t able to do this because I didn’t have a stencil that would have worked.
Step 4: For this flag I decided to use a piece of wood for the stem. You could always cut a stem out of a piece of material if you’d like, too! Glue the stem down using the fabric bond glue stick.
Step 5: Now it is time to embellish the flag. There are tons of ways to do this but you know I like to keep thing simple. Because of that I am just going to add a raffia bow and a large black button. If you want to know how I made my raffia bow please refer to the YouTube video at the top of this page
