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!
- Fabric scraps in assorted colors
- Drop cloth or muslin fabric
- Glue gun or fabric glue
- Sewing machine (optional)
- Craft scissors + straight pins
- Hand-sketched pumpkin and leaf shape templates
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.
I pinned these scrappy pumpkins on top of muslin. I used them as a template to cut a larger pumpkin shape around it.
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.
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.
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!
