Active Time 1 hour
Total Time 1 hour


  • Felt Craft Sheets – Orange Dark Orange, Dark Brown, Olive Green, Dark Green (approx 9″/22cm wide)
  • 1 4″/10cm Wooden Embroidery Hoop
  • 1 Green Pipe Cleaner/Chenille Stem
  • 2 Large Googly Eyes


  • Glue gun and glue sticks
  • Pencil
  • Scissors


  • Remove the label from the embroidery hoop. Loosen the screw at the top of the hoop and separate the inside hoop from the outside hoop. Tighten the screw back up. Use the inside hoop in another project.

    Separating Embroidery Hoops
  • Cut the orange and dark orange felt into 50 (total and approximately) 9"/22cm long strips, some thin and some thick.

    Cut Strips of Orange Felt
  • Start tying the strips of orange felt around the embroidery hoop in double knots. Use the 12, 3, 6, and 9 o’clock marks as a starting point. Continue working around the entire hoop, pushing the strips together to get as many tied on as possible. The more scrap strips tied onto the hoop the fluffier the wreath will be. You can use scissors to neaten up any overhanging pieces of felt if you wish.

  • Adding More Orange Felt to Hoop
  • Cut a strip of Dark Brown, Dark Green, and Olive Green felt 9"/22cm long. Tie at the very top of the hoop, near the screw. Position the dark brown scrap at the top, standing up to resemble the pumpkin stem.

  • Flip the hoop to the back. Take one orange scrap strip and fold it over the screw, so that the tails are hanging down into the center of the hoop. Attach two large googly eyes, one on each tail with a glue gun and glue sticks. Trim excess orange felt from under the eyes.

  • Attaching Eyes
  • Cutting Excess Felt Away
  • Wrap the green pipe cleaners around a pencil then slid off to reveal a coil. Bend in half and glue into the top of the pumpkin near the stem.

    Attaching Pipe Cleaner Vines
  • Create a hanging loop with ribbon or twine if desired, then hang (or place) where desired. Happy Halloween!
