Foilage Decoupage Pumpkins

Contributor post by Caitlin of The Merrythought


This simple way to spruce up a pumpkin is a great way to decorate if you aren't into spiders, skeletons, and witches. It can be hard to decorate for Halloween if you don't like the creepy decorations! But if you just want some sweet decor for this fall season - these decoupage pumpkins are the perfect thing! Plus these can easily stay around and fit in for Thanksgiving!

What you need:
-Pumpkins
-Masking Tape
-White Spray Paint
-Assorted Foliage
-Mod Podge
-Paint Brush



How to make it:
-Use masking tape to cover the pumpkin stem. Press it tightly around the base to seal it well.
-Spray paint your pumpkin and let dry.
-Use Mod Podge on the back of your leaves and press onto pumpkin. Let it dry slightly and then press down again gently along the sides.
-Brush Mod Podge carefully over each leaf to seal in place. Repeat for two or three coats, allowing it to dry in between coats.

Not wishing to be a spoil sport,
but aren't the pumpkins cool enough as is..what with the lovely colors and their inherit design?
Glueing leaves doesn't make them more interesting, it makes them trivia. Please don't slam me for being critical, but perhaps we can have a discussion about what looks better with a little "crafting" &
what should be left alone.
