DIY Plaid Pumpkins in 5 Minutes


5 Minute Plaid Fabric Pumpkin Tutorial


Do you decorate with pumpkins in the fall? I always want to add a few more pumpkins to my collection every year. Today I wanted to share a fun project with you! I have a buffalo plaid wreath on my front door (see my DIY tutorial here). Keeping with the plaid fabric theme, I wanted to share a simple DIY plaid pumpkins tutorial with you.


I originally posted this DIY 2 years ago, and since it’s one of my most popular fall craft posts, I wanted to share it again. Keep scrolling for my easy tutorial on how to make cute DIY plaid fabric pumpkins in only 5 minutes!

5-Minute DIY Plaid Pumpkins Tutorial

Pumpkin Supplies:

1/2 yard of plaid fabric or fabric of choice (1/2 yard will make two pumpkins)

Mega size toilet paper rolls

4″ – 5″ sticks or twig from your yard (I just went around our yard and picked up a few and then removed the bark)

Raffia ribbon

Plaid Pumpkin DIY:

Cut your fabric in half (it will be approximately 22″ square).

Unroll the toilet paper about 10 -15 times, then loosely re-roll it back up, twisting it to have a more rounded shape.

Grab one end of the fabric and tuck it into the center of the toilet paper roll. Continue folding and tucking with the other corners.
