I'm trying to get an early start on my fall decorating. After seeing all the decoupage pumpkins last year, I definitely wanted to give it a try. I took a ceramic pumpkin from my existing decorations, and spray painted it white. I let it dry overnight. In hindsight, I realize I should have used an antique white, since the background of my tissue paper wasn't bright white. I cut the individual images form my tissue paper and applied over a coat of Modge Podge. I cut bits and pieces of tissue paper to fill in the gaps between images so bits of bright white wouldn't show through. When I had the entire surface covered, I applied a top coat of Modge Podge. I used a combination of black and gray paint to cover the stem. I wanted to use what I had on hand, so the only thing I bought was the tissue paper. Next time, I think I may buy some of the matte finish Modge Podge first.
Thanks for stopping by, and I hope all of you have a great week! September is almost here!
