    Fall Fabric Scraps + Little Time = Cute Pumpkin Pin or Candle Ring

    I was thinking the other day what tiny little project could I made with my fall fabric scraps. I was also burning my favorite candle at the time, (yankee candle autumn leaves scent) and this is what I came up with!
    Enjoy!
    1. Using pinking shears cut out 2 circles about 4" with a flat bottom for front and back of pumpkin.
    2. Cut out 1 from quilt batting and trim around the quilt batting another 1/4" so that it is smaller than the fabric pumpkin pieces.
    3. Sandwich the quilt batting between the 2 pumpkin pieces.
    4. Make a stem in the same manner from green fabric.
    5. Pin the stem to the top of the pumpkin. Stitch around the outside of the pumpkin and stem 1/4".
    6. Using pinking shears cut out 3 straight moon shaped pieces from a different orange fabric. Pin in place and stitch down center through all layers.
    7. Place little pieces of raffia, and hand-sew a button catching the raffia and all 3 layers of fabric.

    YOUR CUTE LITTLE PUMPKIN IS DONE!
    Now, you can turn it into a magnet, lapel pin, Autumn ornament, or a fabric candle ring!

    To turn it into a candle ring, measure around the candle jar and cut the elastic. If you are using a large Yankee Candle jar like I did, I cut my elastic 12.5". Overlap the elastic by 1". Pin. Stitch in place. Attach the elastic to the back of the pumpkin and stitch in place.

    Have fun!

    They are so cute, I think I will take them to work and make them there when I am not busy.
    Let God be your quilt and wrap you in His loving care.

    Really cute! I like that they are low enough on the front to be safely away from the flame.
