Patterned Pumpkin

I first tried some material on a pumpkin with modge podge, boy was that horrible.  The material was very stiff and not at all the look I was going for.  I then found a pack of these patterned napkins on clearence for $.59 a pack at hobby lobby.

I tore the napkin into strips and blocks and modge podged the entire pumpkin and painted the pumpkin stem brown.

I like how it turned out and doesn't just have to decorate the home for fall or the holidays but can be a nuetral all year decor.

And, I only ended up using maybe 3 napkins.

Come party with us here.
