I don’t decorate for the holidays. I do not own any decorations for Valentine’s Day, Easter, St Patrick’s Day, 4th of July etc, however, Christmas is an exception. I do like to do a little seasonal decorating. My favorite is fall. I think I am drawn to the colors. I have noticed a few fall projects and all the stores are carrying fall decorations so I am jumping on the bandwagon and posting about pumpkins.
I made these using artificial pumpkins, leopard print tissue paper, Mod Podge, and floral stems.
I cut small pieces of tissue paper and placed them on my pumpkins using the Mod Podge. When the pumpkin was completely covered and dry, I painted on an exterior coat of Mod Podge to protect the edges of the tissue paper and prevent peeling. I hot glued floral stems onto the top of the pumpkins.
I like things in 3s so I made 3 different sized pumpkins.
A big one.
A smaller one.
And a tiny one.
The sunflower is my favorite part.
I also like that these can be displayed from Sept until Thanksgiving year after year.
So what are you waiting for? Fall is just around the corner. Grab a pumpkin and make something fun.
