What You’ll Need:

  • sock(s)
  • plastic grocery bags or stuffing
  • scissors
  • thread
  • needle

Oscar Wilde

“And all at once, summer collapsed into fall.”


Cut your sock

The bigger the more stuffing you’ll need.  I cut mine 4″ to 6″.  


Flip & Sew

Turn your sock inside out and sew one end closed.  Pull tight and bring to a bunch and wrap your thread around to secure the bottom..


Flip & Stuff

Flip right side out and stuff.

I decided to reuse plastic grocery bags to stuff them or you can use stuffing.  The 6″ pumpkin needed about 8-10 bags.  The 4″ pumpkin needed about 6-8 bags.  *will vary depending on you sock material, width and length.



Sew the top of the sock and pull tight.  Wrap and knot to secure and create a ‘stem’. 

*Optional – glue a small stick for the stem or cover it to make a stem.


Shape It

Thread through the bottom and wrap all the way around to create the shape of the pumpkin.   Pull snug and continue as many times as you like then knot to secure it.
