Friday Flashback: Craft Edition

**I haven't been very crafty latley, so I'm sharing a little flashback craft. This fun Mod Podge project was originally posted back in November of 2009.**
*******
Fall Mod Podge Pumpkins
This is how our project ended:
Despite the major mess and the {now} dry and scratchy carpet, our Thanksgiving/fall pumpkins turned out SUPER cute!

Just in case you want to make a HUGE mess and some SUPER cute pumpkins...here is the list of supplies and steps we followed to make them.
*******************************
Plastic pumpkins {mine were $1 at Walmart}
Scrapbook Paper {8 sheets for $1 at Target}
Mod Podge
Paint Brushes
*********************************
Tear scrapbook paper into small pieces
Attach the paper to the pumpkin and continue to coat it with Mod Podge until all the paper is wet and stuck to the pumpkin really well. This is the messy part, because the only way to make the paper stick really well is to work it with your hands! Eli and I worked on some painting while Henry and Grant were finishing up their pumpkins. These SUPER cute and oh so chubby handprints are going to be turkeys and leaves once I get my paintpens after them! Just a little hint....be careful when painting with brown paint, because your kiddo might think it is chocolate and try to lick it off his hand! :)


Then use a foam paintbrush to apply a coat of Mod Podge all over the pumpkins and let them dry.

Pin It!

These are so so cute and kid friendly..Love it! I knew I should have bought those 10 cent pumpkins at the restore for a reason. Dang it! Going back to try and get some for this project.

Those pumpkins are super cute! And actually gave me a much needed idea for a Fall Festival!

And I am sorry about the Mod Podge on the floor! That stinks!!!

PS - I have heard that using vinegar sometimes helps break it up!!

Good luck!
