Modpodge French Terracotta Pot for a Spring Vignette

I am so glad you dropped by today and I truly hope you’ll stay a spell.
Today I am sharing a close up look at my DIY modpodge french style terracotta pot for a carefree Spring Vignette. 
Also, I have one small request would you mind sharing with me what you have been making too? 
Now friends, when I say making, it can be anything from a pot of stew recipe,  a new flower bed or whatever you have been doing to keep yourself engaged and vital while we wait just a bit longer to re-enter society.

Decoupage Pumpkins-DIY

This time of year is just fun and what better way to have 

some whimsical fun than to decoupage some pumpkins.  

Decoupaging is such an inexpensive way to decorate your pumpkins 

and also to make them last throughout the season.

With endless choices of scrapbook paper the sky's the limit for 

adding decoupage pumpkins to your vignettes.

These are the basic supplies you will need to decoupage pumpkins.

Supplies for this project:

1.  Two pie pumpkins
2.  Four sheets of scrap book paper
3.  One jar of Mod Podge
4.  Parchment paper
5.  Glitter glue
6.  Twine
7.  Two small burlap flowers
8.  Scissors
9.  Measuring tape
10.Paper towels
11.Paper plates
12.Paint brush

Directions for this project:

Approximate time to complete this project is 45 minutes per 

pumpkin with a drying time of 45 per pumpkin before moving.

Place on parchment to dry-this way the decoupage strips will not 

stick to drying surface.

1. Measure and cut scrap book paper into 1" x 7 3/4" strips.

2. You will need approximately 16 strips per pumpkin-this may vary according to the size of your pumpkin.

3. Apply mod podge to pumpkin with paint brush-or fingers. 

4. Apply the strips of scrap book paper and work out all bubbles and bumps so strips lie flat.

5. Continue applying mod podge and working strips into place until you are pleased with the project.

6. Option-apply glitter glue.

7. Place on parchment paper to dry for 45 minutes.

8. When pumpkins are completely dry add twine and burlap flowers to pumpkin stem.

9. Place decorated pumpkins on a terracotta saucer.

Everyone needs a little inspiration and mine was Lemony Snicket.   

A Series of Unfortunate Events.

I remember my girls enjoying this series, so I just sort of went with 

that whimsical theme! 

This project is all about fun-so if the strips are not even, there are

a few bubbles and bumps, just forget about it and enjoy the fact

that some projects are all about enjoying them!
