Fall Craft

So randomly 2 nights ago when I was thinking about when it was appropriate for me to put my fall decor out and not look like I was overly anxious, I got this crazy idea to give these pumkins that I have had for 6 years some PIZAZZ!!!! And what do you know I had all the supplies on hand and they turned out so CUTE!!!! Who does not love a leopard pumpkin? There also will be a 3rd pumpkin with them but I will leave it orange and print a big vinyl S on it for Smith! Now I just have to wait to put them out!!!

What you need:
Pumpkins
tissue paper
mod podge

Steps:
-1st I washed my pumpkins because they have been in the garage
-Then I cut my tissue in squares
-Then I painted the mod podge in sections on to the pumkins
-Whatever section I just put the mod podge that is where I put the squares
-After the pumpkin is covered in your tissue then mod podge over the whole thing to give it a little sheen
-Then I put mod podge over the stem and dipped the stem in glitter
*Sorry no pics of the steps I didn't know 1 it would turn out so good lol and 2 so many people would be interested

Put them out now, they are too cute to keep in the closet.

How the heck did you do that??? Don't tell me you handpainted all those spots. Those look awesome! I agree, put them out now. Screw summer.

Are these real or faux pumpkins? I'm thinking faux would be even better! Thank you, this gives me sooo many ideas! :)

Where did you find the leopard tissue paper? I realize you did this 2 years ago but have you seen any lately?
