About The Event

For our next LEXSA Members Giveaway & Workshop, we are creating DIY Sweater Pumpkins! 

Turn a sweater into a plush pumpkin!! Perfect for a Christmas gift! You can use it as a general decoration, bed topper, jewellery display, pin cushion, etc!

Your pack includes sweater sleeves (or opt to use your own), twine for the stem, thread for the sectioning, stuffing and a needle - *sharp* please be careful!

You'll also need a few supplies including a pair of scissors, and some glue. Dried beans, lentils, or rice is optional if you wish to create some weight at the bottom.


You can opt to use your own sweater! 

We will supply a sweater in this giveaway but if you have a sweater at home you think won't be need for next winter, then you can repurpose it as a pumpkin for yourself or as a Christmas gift! Just let us know if the form when you register if you are using your own!

The Process

We've picked an easy tutorial to follow together, which will teach you step-by-step how to create your sweater pumpkin.
