I have never participated in Heidi's monthly craft challenge before, because well...I'm not crafty. But I love Fall and (even though it is still weeks away) Thanksgiving so I decided to jump in for this month's Fall-themed craft fun.
These decoupage pumpkins are really cute and so easy to make! Emma Jane even helped me!
(Sidebar: I don't know if "decoupage" is the correct word for what I did to these pumpkins, because I don't actually know what decoupage means. Like I said, I am not crafty! But it sounds good and I like saying it, so that is what we are calling it!)
To create these adorable decorations you will need:
a small pumpkin (or as many as you want to make)
fall-themed cocktail napkins
Elmer's glue and water
Step 1. Tear the napkins into small pieces
Step 2. Mix equal parts glue and water. Paint pumpkins with glue/water mixture.
Step 3. Place torn napkins over pumpkins and press down.
Step 4. When glue is dry, paint pumpkins with glue/water mixture again and let dry. (again.)
But when Thanksgiving is over and you start decorating for Christmas be sure to chuck these into the trash. Because pumpkins will eventually spoil and you really don't want to unpack your Fall decorations next year only to find rotten pumpkins have ruined it all! :)
