Here is an easy DIY pumpkin pot holder tutorial to whip up quickly for Halloween. These are super cute and can be used as hot pads or trivets to place hot food on. You can use a few different fabrics and make the pumpkin pot holders reversible for a little extra fun. My favorite detail of these is the stitching that makes the little pumpkin stripes and is fun to sew. Black stripe or purple pumpkins would be super cute too!

Oh my ! I am going to put this as my next project and make these pumpkin potholders for the Autumn and fall season. They are so cute and I love the idea of useing a different color of fabric on each side and the stitching just gives it the finished look. I can't wait and I am going to make some for a few family members too. Love the tutorial.

These are really nice and the shape is perfect! These would be easy to make for a fall fund raiser, make a bunch to sell for the scout troop or a church group. These are equally at home for Halloween, thanksgiving and all through the fall! would make a nice hostess gift as well! Add a few tendrils using thin metallic roping, or use for a wall hanging and add some leaves and a crystal dew drop.... Fun and creative idea, thanks for sharing!

This is a cute project for fall! It's nice when you can decorate using useful things, like this potholder.
