Isn’t this “Lovely Pumpkin Tower” gorgeous? It is perfect for Fall Decor! This would be perfect to set in your foyer during the Fall and Thanksgiving season or at a Wedding. You won’t have any trouble crocheting these pumpkins either, as they are easy and you can grab the pattern here on Etsy and here on Ravelry.
Every year I become obsessed with making pumpkins. New ideas seem to come out of nowhere and I have to create them. I decided to make a “Big Pumpkin” and then I thought…TEXTURE! My pumpkins need TEXTURE! So the really big Textured Pumpkins came off my hook, but it didn’t stop there. They needed embellishments, and the Lovely Pumpkin Tower was born.
Keep scrolling to find the tutorial on how to make your Lovely Pumpkin Tower.
The biggest pumpkin is big! It is 34″ around; 5.5″ high. Next is the medium sized pumpkin, which is still big at 30″ around; 4.5″ high. The smaller one is just plain old big at 26″ around; 3.5″ high. Of course you can make them bigger! I have seen a few of them on facebook and they are gorgeous!
If you don’t want to make big pumpkins, I have a free pattern for smaller pumpkins. You can find it here! Free Pattern
Stacking them together and adding a big satin bow, with big tie ends that drape over the sides would be lovely at a Fall or Thanksgiving themed wedding!
Tutorial on how to make a Lovely Pumpkin Tower.
1. Choose the pumpkins you would like to stack together. Choose the lace you would like to embellish with. (If using the large, medium and small pumpkin, each lace piece should be 22-24 inches long. I prefer 3 pieces of lace, but you might only want two, or you could use 4 pieces)
2. Stack your pumpkins together in a fashion that pleases you. Proceed to hot glue them together or insert T pins, if you would like to take the tower apart at a later time. At each layer, stick the pins just under the edge of the pumpkin above, pushing into the pumpkin below it. Bury the “T” wings of the pin into the stitching. It takes a little bit of patience, but you can do this. If you are gluing them together, keep the glue close to the very center of the pumpkin.
3. Stuff the end of one piece of lace under the stem and either glue or use straight pins, to secure the lace into place.
4. Let the lace fall over the edge of the 1st pumpkin, and then stuff it evenly under the pumpkin. Push it back in there under that pumpkin, so that it doesn’t slip out. Apply glue or use straight pins to secure the lace into place.
5. Let the lace fall over the edge of the 2nd pumpkin, and then stuff it evenly underneath the pumpkin, pushing it under there just as before. Apply glue or use straight pins to secure the lace into place.
6. The rest of the lace will naturally drape over the last pumpkin. Stuff that lace underneath and trim off excess, and then glue or use straight pins, to secure the lace into place.
7. Add the second piece of lace in the same manner as before.
8. Add a third piece of lace. I am only adding three pieces of lace to this design. Please feel free to add a 4th or 5th piece of lace.
9. Prepare your pull tie bow. (Click the link to find a tutorial on how to make a pull tie bow) I like my bow to look like it is stuffed down next to the stem. I fold the bow in half at the knot and then continue to shape it.
10. Glue or use a straight pin or pins to secure the pull tie bow into place.
11. I think an Ivory colored Satin Pull Tie Bow is a beautiful option. Leave the tails on your bow long and the loops a little bigger. Fold it in half and pin into place.
12. Beautiful! Just perfect for a Fall Wedding! I highly recommend gluing the tower together if using it at a wedding.
