cream sweater pumpkin….that’s actually green….

nothing says fall quite like a knubby sweater. this cream sweater pumpkin was made from a lovely cream sweater. BUT it is actually green. you see, the only supply that is new, is the brown ribbon at the top. everything else is repurposed or reused. AND it is a no-sew project that takes all of 5 minutes from start to finish. no joke. i am so excited to add this to my fall decor!!

i used the sleeves of the sweater to make my Sweater Flowers and the rest to make this sweater pumpkin.
*don’t worry, i have a tutorial in the works for this dreamy pumpkin :)*

    Linda, that pumpkin is SO cute. I love the cream sweater. I just did a fabric pumpkin tutorial and used twin to define each of the little pumpkin sections…..might work on this little beauty too. NEVER would have thought to use a sweater, but I LOVE it!! Can't wait to see your tute :-).

    Have a great day,

    So simple and cute! I may have to go through my stack that I was going to take to the consignment shop and pull a few things out. :)
