Gather your suppliesYou’ll need very basic supplies:

  • old sweater sleeves
  • a bag of dried beans
  • 2 rubber bands per pumpkin
  • fiberfill stuffing
  • jute twine
  • scissors
  • craft felt (optional)
  • hot glue (optional)

If you want to make leaves for your pumpkins, you’ll also need craft felt and a hot glue gun.

Cut sleeves from old sweatersYou simply cut the sleeves off, each sleeve will make one pumpkin. Turn sleeve inside out, and tie one end tightly with a rubber band. Turn right side out. Then you’ll fill with dried beans and stuffing and tie off the top with another rubber band.
