DIY Felt Pumpkin Banner

Supplies Needed:

Notes about supplies


I used acrylic felt for this banner, but you can use nicer wool felt if you want. Wool felt is so lovely to sew and the color variety is a bit better.

Acrylic felt is just fine though.

Alternatively, you could make this pumpkin banner with paper instead.

Cricut Maker

I used my Cricut Maker and rotary blade for this project to speed up the cutting, but it’s possible to cut everything by hand.

I’ve included a printable PDF template if you choose this option.

Embroidery Floss

I love embroidering my felt projects, but you can use fabric glue to speed this project up if you want.

Baker’s Twine

Baker’s twine is my favorite string to use for felt banners, but feel free to use yarn, string, ribbon, or even twine!

Using Cricut Design Space

I used my Cricut Maker for this project, so these directions are for using the Cricut Design Space. If you’re using a different cutting machine, the exact directions will vary a bit.

  1. Upload the SVG to Cricut Design Space.
  2. Ungroup the pumpkin, stem, and leaf.screenshot of cricut design space pumpkin design
  3. Turn off the visibility for the design elements that you aren’t going to cut first.
  4. Duplicate the pumpkin 3 times.
  5. Arrange the pumpkins so that 4 fit in a 9″ x 12″ area. (This is the size of a sheet of felt.)pumpkins in design space
  6. Group the pumpkins and attach them. (Sometimes Design Space acts weird and wants to place every element on a different mat.)
  7. Click Make It.
  8. On the mat page, select 9×12 and make sure that your pumpkins fit. I like to give them extra space around the edges to make sure that I get a perfect cut.screenshot of cricut design space cutting pumpkins
  9. On the next page, select Felt Acrylic. (I have this option saved as a favorite.)
  10. Make sure that the rotary blade is installed.

Cutting the Felt Pumpkin Elements

  1. Place a sheet of orange felt on the fabric grip mat, smoothing it as you go to make sure that it sticks well.
  2. Load the mat.
  3. Press the C button to start cutting the design. cricut maker cutting orange felt
  4. After it finishes cutting, unload the mat, remove the pumpkins and excess felt, and apply another sheet of felt.
  5. Repeat these steps until you have enough pumpkins for your banner.
  6. Repeat this whole process for the leaves and felt, changing the felt color as desired. (In Cricut Design Space, turn on the visibility for the element you need and duplicate it the correct number of times.)

Cutting the Felt Banners

The banners can be cut with the Cricut Maker as well, but I decided to cut mine by hand since it’s pretty easy.

  1. Fold a sheet of felt in half and cut it down the middle. felt folded in half
  2. Fold the cut piece in half again.
  3. Measure 2″ up along the folded edge.ruler and felt
  4. Cut from the 2″ mark to the other corner to make a banner flag shape.cutting triangle from folded felt to make banner flag

Embroidering the Pumpkins

  1. Center a pumpkin on a banner and pin it in place.pumpkin shape pinned to felt banner
  2. Attach the pumpkins using a blanket stitch in a matching color of embroidery floss. felt pumpkin sewn to banner
  3. Continue until all of the pumpkins are attached to the banners.
  4. Next, add the stem using a running stitch in a matching color of embroidery floss.stem sewn to pumpkin banner
  5. When you’re done with the stems, attach the leaves with a running stitch as well. leaf sewn to pumpkin stem

  2. Thread the baker’s wine through the banner flags. I used a small crochet hook to help with this process.threading string through banner slits using crochet hook
