Mini Crochet Pumpkins

Monday, October 14, 2013

Hello everyone, I hope you are all enjoying fall.  I shared with you all the mini crochet pumpkins that I made last year HERE and the pattern to make them is HERE in a recent post.  Well I have been busy for the past few weeks crocheting these little mini pumpkins in all sorts of colors.  Come take a look!

I made white pumpkins with a black stem which are all the rage in blog land right now.

And this deep orange color with a brown stem!

Here are my little crocheted pumpkins sitting in the fall leaves.

And more little pumpkins!  Look how cute they look sitting together.

Here is my mantle decorated with my mini pumpkins.  Notice on the left there is a white pumpkin missing!  Well that is because I am still in the process of finishing it!  I need to sew it up.  The painting in the background I painted when I was in high school.  I do need to make a burlap wreath for next year to hang there.

I used tiny cotton balls to stuff the pumpkins.

There is still time left to make some mini crocheted pumpkins for fall and Halloween!  I hope I have inspired some of you to create one.  They are so much fun to make and I will be making a few more for some of my friends in my crochet group since I have a lot of yarn left over.

The white yarn is Caron in the color Fisherman White.  The deep orange yarn is Lion Brand Yarn Wool-Ease Chunky in the color 133 Pumpkin.  The bright orange yarn is Lion Brand Yarn Vanna's Choice in the color Radiant Orange.  The black yarn is Red Heart Super Saver in the color 0312 Black.  The brown yarn is from Red Heart (I don't have the label) but the yarn color is dark brown.

If you want to crochet these pumpkins you can use whatever yarn you have and color.  

I also want to thank and welcome all my new followers to my blog.  Thank you for all your sweet comments, they mean a lot to me.  

I also would like to thank all the wonderful friends that I have made in blog land who have featured me on their blogs with all of my crochet creations and my recipes!  Thanks it means so much to me.

I am on Twitter, Ravelry and Pinterest.  My username is @brklynhousewife.  Please don't forget to follow me on Bloglovin too!  All of my crochet/knit creations and recipes are on my Pinterest Boards, so please have a look there also.  

Thanks everyone and enjoy.

Julie

  4. Julie, I saw these on Kathe With an E and had to come over here and get a better look! I love anything to do with fall and pumpkins, so I really fell for these! You are so artistic and creative- that painting you did in high school is lovely. Old churches are wonderful- do you have a larger picture of the painting?

    Hope you have a great week,

    Love, Joy

  5. Oh.. this is so gorgeous and the crocheted pumpkins are to die for!!! I am gonna look for old sweaters to make them from...but than, I usually give them away for the poor, so I haven't any. Mother says her back hurts, so she doesn't kneat any more. You are talented and creative sweet lady. I love your mantel too, it's lovely. Thank you for your sweet and kind comments. Love,
