I was so inspired by Katie’s post where she turned the Crafty Boho Wall Hanger pattern into a Pumpkin, that I just had to share how you can whip up a pumpkin wall hanger for yourself 🙂

Seriously how cute is this?! I knew if I wanted to make one, you would too! Fall is filled with pumpkin decor and I am a FAN!

I love modifying patterns to give them a new theme or look to match the seasons of life! If you haven’t seen the Unicorn Modification to this wall hanger pattern you can check that out below.

The free pattern can be found on my blog!

Modifying patterns is so much fun! You can pick out new yarn colors, or use different sized yarn, and boom you have a whole new pattern. The creativity is endless!

If you want to check out the original wall hanger pattern you can find that here on my blog.

Now if you are like me and love pumpkin projects I have some free patterns that you should check out 🙂

Stem

Ok friends. I had to get a little creative with the stem making here so if any of the instructions below on confusing please refer to the video that goes with this pattern.

With your stem color yarn chain 10.

Skip the chain closes to your hook and sc 9 in the back bumps of your stitches.

Now we are going to work back up the other side of our chain. You will place your stitches at the bottom of the stitches you just did.

I show this step-by-step in the video.

SC 9 back down your chain. Join into the top of your first SC. CH 1.

Rows 2-8: SC one time in each stitch around (18)

Do not tie off after row 8.

Attaching your stem

After you finished rows 1-8 of your stem, it’s time to attach it to your pumpkin wall hanger. We are using a method I am calling a Slip Stitch Sandwhich.

I’m sure there’s an actual name for it but this is what I’m going with. Again, if this is confusing, please refer to the video tutorial.

We are going to slip stitch our stem onto our pumpkin. You will need to line up the back 9 stitches with the front 9 stitches of your stem.

We will SLST 9 stitches of the body of your wall hanger between the front and back 9 stitches of your stem. That’s why its called a sandwich 😉

Turn your stem so it’s closed at the top and the opening is at the bottom.

Insert your hook into the first stitch of your front 9 stem stitches. This is going to feel a little weird because it’s kind of upside-down from what you’re used to, but just trust the process.

Then insert your hook into the first of 9 body stitches, then insert your hook into the first stitch of the back 9 of your stem.

SLST going through all the stitches on your hook.

Repete that all the way across the bottom of your stem until its fully attached.

Vine

These are the instructions for a vine that’s about 4.5″ long. If you want a longer stem just add more stitches to your starting chain.

Feel free to make multiple vines in all different lengths and different shades of green!

If you want your vine to be less “fat”, use half double crochets instead of double crochets. 

Using your green yarn chain 20.

Skip the first 2 chains and DC 3 in the next space. 

Continue to DC 3 times in each stitch back down your chain. (54)

Tie off leaving a long tail for attaching to your wall hanger.

Use your tapestry needle and whip stitch your vine/s to the side of your stem.

Now take a step back and look at your beautiful crochet pumpkin wall decor piece you created!! I think these wall hangings are stunning and would look so pretty in any room in a house.

These inexpensive hooks are PERFECT for hanging your crochet tapestry on!

I love how versatile the design is. You could get creative with different flower patterns, color combos, yarns, and textures and make each Crafty Boho Wall Hanger unique.

Katie also made a pumpkin wall hanger with some beautiful flowers across the top, her creativity is amazing!

I hope you guys love this pattern. If you make any crochet pumpkin wall decor hangings and post pics, please tag me @ACraftyConcept, I would love to see your finished piece! I’m excited to see everyone’s unique style shine through with this design.

Happy Crocheting
