Dropcloth Pumpkin

Happy weekend!!

I've been finding so many amazing crafts and recipes for Fall! 
I've especially been loving all the recipes using pumpkin, as well as the neutral pumpkins for Fall decor.

Inspired by all the neutral pumpkin projects for Fall decorating, I decided to turn one of our orange trick-or-treat buckets into a more chic, girly pumpkin for my daughter to use for trick-or-treating.  At $2.99 a piece, I might make some for my Fall decor as well!

Here's my materials used...
Pumpkin trick-or-treat bucket ($2.99 at most stores)
8 strips of dropcloth , approx 2 inch by 26 inch
 Hot Glue Gun
Sharpie marker (or anything to mark on the dropcloth)
Rosettes made of various scraps of fabric

Here's my pumpkin trick-or-treat bucket, after I removed the handle (it does come off, and can be put back on).

To start out this pumpkin project, I cut out eight strips of dropcloth...approx 2 in' wide, and approx 26 in' long. 

I used one of the stips of dropcloth, and wrapped it vertically around the outside of the pumpkin, in the center.
(there will be some fraying of the drop cloth along the way, just trim as you go along, or go with Fray Check)

I placed hot glue on the ends of the strip, and tucked the ends into the inside of the top of the pumpkin, gluing them in place.   
  Then I added a second strip to the pumpkin.
When I covered the hole for the handle with a strip, I marked where the hole is with a sharpie.
Then I continued adding strips until the whole pumpkin was covered.

I used a knife to cut a slit in the dropcloth where I placed my sharpie marks, and put the handle back on.

Then I hot glued on a few fabric rosettes, and that's it!

Who's ready for Halloween?
