I wanted to share this little pumpkin makeover. It started out as plain, styrofoam, dollar store pumpkin. Bright orange, but plain. I bought it with the plans of making a Halloween themed pumpkin out of it. That didn’t happen. So I decided to make a Fall themed pumpkin.
I used a piece of fall themed scrapbook paper. I’m not the only one that has books and books of scrapbook paper but doesn’t actually scrapbook right? Anyway—I tore the paper into small-ish sizes and used Mod Podge to glue it down. I tore the paper because I wanted the rough edges and the little peeks of white. When gluing the paper down, it did wrinkle up in places because it’s a rounded surface…I like the look. It gives it a vintage-y feel.
Then I glued down a small crochet doily on the top. I have tons of these things that I pick up at thrift stores and I’m not always sure what to do with them. This is a great way to use a small one.
I’m still not sure if it needs a little something more, but for now it sits with my little fall display, nestled with the scarecrows and pumpkins.
