DIY VELVET PUMPKINS
Velvet pumpkins are expensive!! Well, you can definitely make your own. Watch the video below to see how easily it is done. I found this video particularly helpful as to while other tutorials are a bit labor consuming with sewing and such, this video is well streamlined by using rolled socks and cotton batting so that you can just stick the stems right in the middle. No sewing's required!! Genius!
Most of the materials are easy to get. However, the most crucial thing is the pumpkin stems. You need to save them and dry in the oven at 200 F for an hour. The more drier and aged looking the stems are, the more rustic and best looking velvet pumpkins will be! Read this article for different DIY tutorials. She uses rice and beans for stuffing and her pumpkins look really lovely! HAPPY DIY!~~
