Good morning crafters!! Today I have another fun and messy-as promised :) -Halloween craft for you! Mod Podge Pumpkins! Aren't they cute?!
(did you miss the previous Halloween crafts posted? Check them all out here!)
I originally saw this idea from The 36th Avenue, but she did fall pumpkins-which I fully intend to do :) -and I wanted some for Halloween, so using her tutorial I got to work!
- $ store pumpkins
- Halloween/Fall/Leftover fabric
- black acrylic paint
- mod podge
Apply a layer of mod podge under and over each strip of fabric as you lay it onto the pumpkin. TIP: Pull the fabric downward tightly (not like Hercules strength tightly, we're not trying to tear it...just stretch it) as you place it on the pumpkin starting at the stem and moving towards the underneath side. Stretching the fabric a little as you pull will keep it from bubbling up.
Continuing adding strips around the entire pumpkin by overlapping each piece of fabric enough that no orange is showing through.
And then make as many as you want!!
I like the finished look, but felt it needed a little somethin' somethin'. Not anything too heavy since I used patterned fabric. Tulle tied around into a bow was the perfect solution for me!
See how the fabric cut into arrows on the top looks when the pumpkins complete? It gives you nice, clean lines.
Did you notice the little pedestal underneath the pumpkins?! That easy craft will be up for you tomorrow! :)
This is another great project to do with a little bit older kids. My 4 year old loved painting the mod-podge onto the pumpkin and sticking the fabric to it!
Thanks for coming over today, you're the best!! Can't wait to see ya back here tomorrow and as always...have a sweetly lovely day my lovelies!!!
