Generally, my holiday style is a bit on the girlie side. I wanted to switch up our Halloween/fall decor this year & felt like getting crafty. I had a fair amount of Rifle Paper Co. wrapping paper leftover from Emery’s 1st Birthday Party, and I knew I wanted to create something with it. Enter these adorable floral pumpkins. They were super easy to make, didn’t take long & are so pretty!
-Fake or Real pumpkins (I used white ones, as I thought it looked best with the paper)
-wrapping paper (here & here)
1.) Cut out a strip of the paper. I choose to cut around the flowers. I didn’t want to cover the whole pumpkin, but you could also do it that way.
2.) Apply Mod Podge around the pumpkin where you are going to apply the paper.
3.) Tape the strip of paper onto the pumpkin where you want it. This just makes it easier when you are painting on the Mod Podge.
4.) Paint on the Mod Podge going up and down (similar to the ridges of the pumpkin) until it sticks & all the edges of the paper are flat. I went over a couple to times with just the brush to try & smooth out the paper.
Now it’s a waiting game. I painted mine before bed and in the morning it was all dry. I love that I can use this pumpkin again next year. I got mine at Michaels & I am guessing they are all on sale now. I hope you enjoyed this!
