If you’re like me, you’re enjoying some beautiful fall weather!
One of my favorite things about fall is decorating my home, filling it with the warmth and beauty and bounty of the season. I have a buffet table in my dining room that I try to change up for the seasons.
When I saw these gorgeous decoupage pumpkins on the cover of the October issue of Country Living magazine, I knew I wanted to put some of my paper crafting supplies to work to create my own version.
How cute are these?!
And here is what I came up with…
Instead of decoupaging paper over my entire pumpkin, I sprayed them white and just added some die-cuts and alphabet stickers.
It was such a quick and fun project! I first wrapped the stems with painters tape, then gave them two coats of cream colored spray paint.
I let them dry overnight, then went to work adding the fun stuff! I added some Fancy Pants Summer’s End letter stickers and some pretty leaf die-cuts from Papertrey Ink’s Harvest Berries die collection. I adhered them with decoupage glue, then gave my entire pumpkin a top coat of the decoupage.
They look so pretty sitting on my dining room table! I just love it when I find other uses for my paper crafting supplies!
So do you have a pumpkin decorating/carving/gathering tradition? I’d love to hear about it! Leave me a comment here and I’ll choose one winner to take home this Harvest Berries die-cut from Papertrey Ink, and the Summer’s End collection by Fancy Pants!

Pretty as a pumpkin,
