Pumpkin Board

This was a very easy project All I did was pick paper that I liked and used modge podge to glue it on and then put a coat over the top.  It is the same process I used here.
To help with storage I put it on the back of the Patriotic board.
I feel like I still need something, but it is a work in progress.

I am not the best seamstress at all, but these pumpkins were so easy to make. Here are the directions.
1. Cut your fabric in whatever shape you want your pumpkin. Place right sides together.
2. Sew all the way around the outside, but leave an opening at the top to put your stem in.
3. Now feed the bottom through your opening at the top to get the fabric to the front side. Then add dried beans to the bottom so that it will stand up.

4. Use pillow stuffing and fill your pumpkin.
5. Make a stem by cutting fabric in a rectangle and sewing all but the bottom part. Flip the right side out by using scissors if you need to.

6. Then hold the stem in place at the top and tuck in the ends so it is smooth and then just sew across to secure it.
Then you have your finished product!
