Decoupage Pumpkins

I found these really cute pumpkins on Tracy's Trinkets & Treasures, and I have a friend who loves leopard print so I needed to make one for her! Plus they are super cheap and easy to make.

What you need:
Craft pumpkin, any size
Tissue Paper
Mod Podge, I used matte, but glossy would work too
Fake flowers or leaves
Hot glue gun

Clean the craft pumpkin with a damp cloth so the Mod Podge will stick better. 

I cut the tissue paper into one and two inch strips to male it easier to apply. I think squares, or circles would be easier.

After “gluing” the tissue paper onto the pumpkin with the Mod Podge, I sealed it with a layer on top.

After the whole pumpkin was covered with tissue paper I added some leaves and a flower to the top to add some decoration and to cover up ends on the paper on the top. Not really a fan of the flower, maybe just leaves next time.
