I mentioned that I am trying to keep our fall décor within a budget, so when I found carvable pumpkins at the dollar store I knew I had to grab a few and give them a makeover! This project was so super simple and only cost me a few dollars. Cheap and easy – now that is my kinda’ project!

Supplies:

  • Pumpkins (really any kind of material would work if you can’t find the styrofoam ones)
  • Mod Podge
  • Paint or foam brush
  • Tissue Paper
  • Scissors
  • Twine and washi tape for extra decoration (optional)

Directions:

  • Cut Tissue paper into one inch sized squares or rectangles. Don’t worry if they aren’t perfect!
  • Apply mod podge to small area of the pumpkin with your brush and then stick on a piece of tissue paper. Put another coat of mod podge over it and continue this until the whole pumpkin is covered and let it dry.
  • For the orange pumpkin I used washi tape to cover the stem and for the green one I left it as-is.
