This isn’t a unique idea but there are so many variations, it’s easy, fun and so pretty. I did decoupage pumpkins a few years ago but after seeing the cutest scrapbook paper at Canvas Corp…
I couldn’t resist doing another. There’s no such thing as too many pumpkins, right?
Supplies: Faux pumpkin, scrapbook paper (Canvas Corp. has a beautiful selection), sheet music, book pages or newspaper and Deco Art Decoupage.
Apply Decoupage to pumpkin using a paint brush or foam brush.
Apply decorative ripped or cut up paper and coat with Decoupage again.
It goes on white and dries clear.
Pretty! Festive for my craft room…
Have you decoupaged anything lately?
Yesterday’s theme was “fall/Halloween” crafts (party is open for a week!). Did you link up? Here are some fun crafts from my fellow October’fest of Fun hostesses:
Kristin from My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia shared her bath salt pumpkins…
and bling pumpkin…
Debbie from DebbieDoo’s shared her adorable DIY fall sign…
Shannon from Fox Hollow Cottage has a great tutorial for painted distressed glass vases…
The fun continues today!
Shannon from Fox Hollow Cottage is hosting the “fall/Halloween” mantel event. I love her spooky Gothic haunted Halloween mantel. Need some mantel decorating ideas? Check out the festive links!
What a great idea and I am loving ALL of the inspiration. I’m not quite ready for fall, but what a lovely way to prepare myself. Head over and check out all of the fall fun!
Here’s my post:
I know. I know. It’s a little early….
I don’t know what your weather is like, but here in PA, it’s beginning to feel a lot like Autumn. It’s still August for goodness sake! But chillier temps (currently 59 degrees!) and a trip to Michael’s where Halloween and fall have already been on display for a few weeks = autumn on the brain. (I didn’t procrastinate this year!)
(Note: I AM NOT ready for the summer to end just yet…where’d it go?)
Remember my house number flower pots? Well, soon those flowers are going to flower-heaven as fall frost gets closer, right? Then what? Well…introducing my House Number Funkins (faux pumpkins) with glow in the dark glittered numbers (which look so cool glowing but photographing in the dark is a little tricky):
I haven’t put them out yet. I’m not quite ready to say good bye to summer and my petunias are still soaking up the last of summer but I’ll be all ready when it’s time.
