DIY Buffalo Check Flannel Pumpkin

There is only one thing better than buffalo check….buffalo check flannel!

This project all stemmed from my need for pumpkins to mingle in with my fall decor. Grab you some fabric (or an old flannel shirt) and a old pillow and you’re on your way to DIY pumpkin heaven!

Grab a pillow you don’t mind sacrificing and cut that bad boy open. You’re gonna need the polyfil for later.

Next comes your fabric. I had debated on using a farmhouse printed fabric but ultimately decided on buffalo check, because well…it’s buffalo check and I literally can’t get enough of it.

Simply cut out a large circle, mine was about 9 in, and place a handful of polyfil in the center.

Then simply bring your edges to the center, hot gluing as you go. I literally placed a lump of hot glue in the center of my poly and folded the edges inward and pressed down into the glue.

I used a tiny little scrapwood cube for my stem. A stick from your yard or a thread spool would also work.

Embellish your stem with a simple little raffia bow and this little pumpkin is a wrap!


Now that you have the perfect little buffalo check pumpkin, make a cute little wood box pumpkin to pair with it! FIND IT HERE

    Thanks for the tutorial! I’ve been wanting to make some but I DO NOT sew and most call for sewing! It’s SO cute! Love the flannel, too!
