Lesson 115- Mod Podge Pumpkins

I found these ceramic pumpkins at Hobby Lobby and decided to turn them into my version of designer pumpkins.  I know decorating pumpkins with scrapbook paper and Mod Podge is nothing new, but I love the way mine turned out.

 
 I picked out five different patterns in black and white, tore them in pieces, and used Mod Podge to put them on the pumpkins.  I liked that they didn't look like your stereotypical pumpkins.  But I was worried that they might not look too great with our other fall or Halloween decorations.  So...






I bought a metallic copper acrylic paint and put a very thin layer of paint over the pumpkins.  To keep the ridges defined, I painted a thicker line in the crevice.  And those are my pumpkins.

  1. Very clever! I'm not too crazy about the black-and-white print by itself, but the copper paint makes up for it, and helps it look "fall-y." :o) I may have to try this myself!

  2. Love it with the copper! The black and white looked really good too, but it definitely looks more like fall now. If you ever get tired of them, feel free to send them my way ;-)

  4. CUTENESS! I love 'em! I think I have paper that looks almost exactly like that. Might have to dig it out and use it up. Thanks for the fun idea!

  5. Very fun! I saw those too and thought paint rather than Mod Podge, which is hilarious. I love what you did!
