First I have to give credit where credit is to. While at a gas station during a road trip my mom and I had about a month ago, we eyed the decorative pumpkins on the cover of the September issue of the Country Living magazine. We HAD to know how they did it! I had never even heard of decoupaging, but over the past couple weeks I've become quite the pro. My little Brookfield, WI pumpkin factory has been just a cranking these pumpkins out to get ready for the Shawano Farmers Market last weekend. With Halloween only a couple weeks out I wanted to share with you the decoupage technique.
Buy yourself a small/medium or pie sized naked pumpkin.
|The bigger the pumpkin the longer it takes. |
Small pumpkins are more decorative anyway!
|A straight edge paper cutter comes in real |
handy during this step
|Pour the mod podge into a bowl for ease|
Once completed apply a thin layer of mod podge to the entire pumpkin to completely seal the paper to the pumpkin.
And ta-da! A completed pumpkin that looks like this! This pumpkin will be going on my desk at work, but these would also make great center pieces for Thanksgiving.
|With a little raffia this will be a great fall desk decor.|
