Another Fun Decoupage Pumpkin Idea

Decoupage Pumpkins

What you'll need: pumpkin, white spray paint, thin book pages or newspaper, Mod Podge or other decoupage medium, foam brush, die cut letters or letter stickers, ribbon and lace

Make it: Spray your pumpkin white and let it dry. Then, cut banana-shaped pieces from your book pages or newspaper. Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the back of the pages, and attach them to the pumpkin until it's completely covered. Use Mod Podge to adhere your letters to the pumpkin -- spell "eek," or "boo," or whatever message you want. (If you don't have die cut letters, you can use stickers or cut your own out of cardstock.) Add a ribbon and some lace around the stem to finish off.
