Hello everyone and welcome to another fabulous blog post. I loved working on this post and I hope that you enjoy it as much as I do!
So I was toodaling around the intranet (also known as the internet for those who don’t understand young adult lingo lol) and came across this wonderful blog post on Simple as That. Okay, so my mom found it for me, but it is still adorable! Rebecca made these cute no carve pumpkins, so I wanted to make my own! Check out her blog post by clicking on the picture below!
So here on Home on the Corner, I decided to try to make the fox and the owl. Neither my mom or I are real big into raccoons, but he is still cute none the less.
Here are the supplies I used for these pumpkins.
2 Fake Pumpkins-I bought both of mine from Michaels. Also, the turquoise one came that way.
1 Hot Glue Gun
1 Pair of Scissors
Lots of Felt!
Also, I have a pencil in the picture, but didn’t end up using it.
So I started with the owl. I started with measuring my pink felt to see how big of a wing I wanted. I folded the felt in half and drew what I wanted my wing to look like and cut it out.
Next I took the beige color and drew what I wanted for a belly. I drew a half circle since the bottom of that piece wouldn’t be seen.
I then went for the nose. I just cut a small triangle out of orange felt to make a nice small beak.
The final part was the eyes. Unfortunately, I was so excited to get them done that I didn’t take a picture…sorry. But, I took white felt and used the bottom of a candle to make big bug eyes. I then used my sharpie to draw little pupils in the eyes.
Then I moved onto the fox. I used the white felt to draw the face. I wanted her to have a bit of a mask, so I made a slit down the middle to symbolize the snout. From there, I went to draw on two little eyes and a nose.
I then took the beige fabric to make another tummy. I did the same half circle shape for her little tummy.
Finally, I took some orange felt and leftover white to make the ears. I wanted them to be a bit big, so I over drew them and trimmed them where I needed.
The final step for both of these pumpkins was to hot glue everything on! This was by far the most exciting because I wanted to see the finished product!
And here you go! The final look of my owl and my fox!
I think that they are absolutely adorable! I love how they turned out and can’t wait to find where I want to use them as decoration. I know I didn’t put a tail on the fox, but I ran out of orange and white felt and didn’t have any orange paper to make a tail. I’m sorry…I failed at making a fox!
But in all seriousness. They are super cute and super easy to make. I love how they turned out and I hope you found this tutorial easy to follow!
