Mod Podge Pumpkins

The girls wanted to decorate their pumpkins and I just wasn't up for carving with them. We ended up with 3 pumpkins this year so I let them each decorate their own small pumpkins. I carved an owl on the big pumpkin accidentally deleted the picture. Ooops.

The cat is Abby's and the witch is Aly's.

The supplies are really simple. All you need is Mod Podge, cheapo paintbrushes, a pattern and scrapbook paper, or picture of your choice, and pumpkins.

I used bits of leftover scrapbook paper to cut out the pieces of the witch.

Abby just wanted a simple black cat so hers was easy.

Spread Mod Podge on the back of the picture or paper you are using. Then stick it to the pumpkin and smooth out any wrinkles. Once you have all your pieces of paper glued to the pumpkin, add a layer of Mod Podge over your whole pumpkin. Since we didn't make ours until Halloween and they didn't need to last long, we only put on one coat, but to make it last longer, I would think 3-4 coats would be best.

It would be cute to do some leaves, turkeys, or pilgrims for Thanksgiving too.
