chenille pumpkin

DIY vintage chenille pumpkin
 Chenille pumpkins are a great way to recycle chenille blankets. Super cute for a powder room, table decoration, and they look great lined up on a mantel or staircase! 
Don't have time to make one, you can purchase a pumpkin in my Sewsweetvintageco shop

*************
White chenille would make really cute ghost pumpkins. My inspiration for this project came from the pumpkins I'd seen at City Farm House.

  5. Oh, I just love your chenille pumpkins! I have lots of memories of my grandma's chenille bedspreads. But when they get old, they do cause a lot of lint! Glad you could save some to make these adorable pumpkins. Thanks for sharing at Krafty Kat!

  9. Hi Michele!
    Thanks for stopping by and following me!
    I have returned the favor happily :)
    As a note from one newbie to another - you come us as no-reply comment on blogger.
    Let me know if you need help changing that - that way other bloggers can reply directly to you.
    I had a lovely fellow blogger tell me how to do it, because my said no-reply, too. :)
    If you have a second, check out my post of my burlap, linen and twine pumpkins at http://belljarvintage.blogspot.com/2012/09/oh-hello-fall.html. I am making some velvet ones now, but might just have to add chenille to the mix! ;)
