Pumpkin Decorating Idea - Decoupaged Pumpkin

Posted by   + Show Post

                     

Decoupaged Pumpkin

This gourd gets its graphic appeal from Pictorial Webster's ($35; Chronicle)—a volume filled with cool black-and-white illustrations. Choose your favorite drawings from the book (we used approximately 120 for a medium-size Funkin, or faux pumpkin), then photocopy them onto off-white cover stock paper. Next, carefully tear out each photo-copied image, leaving about half an inch of white space around it. (The rough edges will give your finished product added interest.) Using our découpage technique, cover an entire Funkin with the images, overlapping their edges as you work.

(Funkins, from $19.99; pumpkinzone.com)

Cute idea. I would definately use a fake pumpkin so it would last from year to year.
