Decoupage Pumpkins, DIY using Martha Stewart Crafts
I was feeling crafty again this week.
I came home with Martha Stewart Crafts glitter paint, cake stencils, cupcake stencils, foam hangie spiders, treat wrappers, window clings, and lace pumpkin sleeves.
There’s enough stuff here for several projects.
Inspiration struck when I spied the Martha Stewart Treat Wrappers.
Perfect for decoupage pumpkins!
The wrappers come in 4 patterns; there is a spider, a skull , a black cat, and a Happy Halloween.
The inside of the wrappers (cupcake liners) are silver foil lined.
I brushed a heavy coat of Mod Podge on the pumpkin and the wrappers.
Past experience has taught me that more is better.
Since the wrappers were rounded, they were easy to fit to the pumpkin.
I smoothed the wrappers over the pumpkins until they were adhered well.
I didn’t align them perfectly and they had a few wrinkle’s but that’s ok.
Trust me, the final product will be awesome
I brushed Mod Podge over the outside of the wrappers also. This helps protect the paper.
The first pumpkin project went so well that I did two more.
It took about 45 minutes to decoupage the three pumpkins.
I set the wet pumpkins on top of canned vegetables to prevent them sticking to the Kraft paper.
I forgot to mention that I covered my work surface with Kraft paper and I also wore a pair of disposable gloves.
The pumpkins are still wet in this photo but the Mod Podge will dry clear.
I really like the skull design and I dressed up one of the pumpkins using the silver lined side of the wrappers.
My original plan was to cover the large pumpkin completely but I liked the scalloped edges, so half-way down the pumpkin I was done!
Notice the black lace covered pumpkins……Martha Stewart Crafts Pumpkin Sleeves…..
the easy way to decorate…..and such a cool look.
This is not a sponsored post. All of the supplies for this project were purchased by me.
I like Martha Stewart Crafts supplies. I love the stencil I used on the Cherry Red Chest and the silk screen template for my Up-cycled Urn Project was really cool. It’s the first time I used a silk screen.
What do you think about the decoupage pumpkins?
Cool or Crazy?
