How To Make A Pumpkin Hair Clip

I started out by cutting a pumpkin shape out of orange felt. For the stem I used a little brown piece of felt.

I then embroidered on some little details, but if you’re not into sewing you could just use little pieces of black felt to create a jack-o-lantern face and glue it on with fabric glue.

I did a little running stitch around the outside. Then I tied French knots for the eyes, and did a little embroidered mouth. Simple, and so cute.

For the pumpkin vine I used a little curled green ribbon.

To make the curls, wrap the ribbon around a dowel -I used a wooden spoon since that’s what I had on hand. Secure with cloths pins or anything oven safe, and bake in your oven at 250 degrees for 25 min. Let cool then unravel.

I used a little hot glue to attach the ribbon and the pumpkin to the hair clip.
