Use up your fall fabric scraps and create a colorful pumpkin table runner

Do you have a towering pile of fabric scraps that you can’t part with? Turn them into a fun pumpkin-shaped table runner for a holiday tablescape that’ll last Halloween through Thanksgiving. This can easily be a no-sew project!

Supplies:

Step #1:

I gathered my fabric scraps and laid out a hand-sketched pumpkin shape on top. I cut seven pumpkin shapes from my scraps. Depending on the length of your table, you may need to add more (or less) pumpkins.

Step #2:

I pinned these scrappy pumpkins on top of muslin. I used them as a template to cut a larger pumpkin shape around it.

Step #3:

I used a corresponding fabric to cut rectangles, approximately 3×4” in size. I then rolled them into a cigar-like shape to use as a stem. I pinned the stem in between the fabric scrap pumpkin and the muslin to hold in place.

I opted to sew the fabric scrap pumpkin to the muslin pumpkin but you can just as easily use fabric glue or a hot glue gun to secure the two fabric pumpkins and stem together.

Step #4:

I laid the pumpkins  out in a row and used glue to overlap them and secure them together. I also used a green fabric to cut leaf shapes and used glue to adhere them to the pumpkins.

Step #6:
Add small strips of ribbon near the pumpkin stem for additional pumpkin detail.

Lay the pumpkin runner on your table to enjoy throughout the pumpkin spice season!
