Choose Between 2 Sizes!

Turn scraps of fabric into charming little yo-yo pumpkins for fall. They will be fun grouped together on a mantel or shelf, as part of a table centerpiece, decorating a wreath, or even as nametag placeholders for special fall meals, like Thanksgiving (affix name tags made from stiff paper to the stems).

Yo-yos are stacked on 1/4″ wooden dowels with the ends painted brown. Attach felt leaves and natural or imitation grapevine bits with a glue gun to finish the pumpkins (the designer used Natural Grapevine Wire).

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
