Can I Use PVA Glue Instead?

Yes! A craft glue will also work to help stick the felt together. Ensure it’s a strong hold that works on felt or fabric materials. This is a safe alternative for younger kids if you don’t want them handling a hot glue gun.

How to Make Felt Pumpkin Treat Bags

Step 1: Print the templates and cut out the felt

Begin by printing out my free pumpkin template. Ensure that your printer settings are set to 100% scale. Cut the pattern pieces out.

Once the pattern is ready, trace around the pieces onto the felt.

Cut list:

  • 2 x pumpkins & 1 x pocket from the orange felt
  • 1 x leaf from the green felt
  • 1 x stalk from the brown felt
  • 1 x face from the black felt

Step 2: Glue the pumpkin together

To create a sturdy base, I hot glued the two pumpkins together to make a thicker pumpkin. To do this glue around the edges and press the two layers together until dry.

Step 3: Attach the face

Next, add glue to the face and stick it onto the pumpkin pocket. I added glue to the bottom edge of the eyes as they hang over the pocket slightly.

Add some glue around the out edges of the pumpkin pocket (not along the top edge). Stick this to the pumpkin, lining up the edges and holding it in place until the glue dries.

Step 4: Glue on the leaf and stalk

Lastly, add some glue to the inner corner of the leaf and stick it to the top middle of the pumpkin. Then glue the bottom edge of the stalk and stick this on top of the leaf.

Now you can add your favourite candy to the pocket!
