Mod Podged Fall Pumpkins

After I had such a great response on my Halloween Mod Podged pumpkins, I decided that making some fall version ones would be the perfect thing to get me in the mood for fall decorating!


The pumpkins I did previously were from the $ store, but by the end of October not ONE dollar store in my city had ANY pumpkins whatsoever left! Isn't that crazy?! So I picked these ones up from Hobby Lobby when they were 70% off. The stems weren't too bad how they were, but I wanted them to really complement the fabric so I decided to paint them a copper metallic.

P.S. I am LOOOOVING this color right now, I'm painting everything I can get my hands on! :)


I had picked up these 3 scraps of fabric for about $1 each from JoAnns about a month ago and I still have plenty of each one left that I'm using for another project I'm working on right now! :)


Following the tutorial I wrote up HERE, I mod podged on the fabric in strips all around the pumpkins.


Although I was bummed that I couldn't use cutsey, easy, perfectly shaped for this project, $ store pumpkins, now that they're done I love that they're all different heights, and roundness. Good dimensions I think. :)




Thanks so much for stopping by today, I hope you're staying warm where you are! It snowed this weekend for me...and today...so we're bundled up inside crafting! What are you doing today?!
