Hey, everyone! It's Fall, yay!
So . . . I've been getting the house ready for autumn with a few fall pumpkins. I do have a little different take on Fall, I decorate my house more Fall coastal style. I have pumpkins mixed in with shells, etc. so every year I make a new coastal pumpkin. This year I decided to add a sand covered pumpkin into the mix!
I know we all go on vacations to the beach during the Summer and some of us even save some sand in a jar for a keepsake. This is a great way to use some of the sand you saved!
For this craft you're going to need:
- Fake Pumpkin
- Matte Mod Podge
I rounded up all my supplies for this craft! I already had an awesome foam pumpkin on hand, which I was super excited about.
Step 1 – Take off Stem
Pull the foam stem out of the pumpkin and paint on your color. I picked a pretty blue and brown color and let dry a couple minutes.
Step 2 – Add Mod Podge and Sand
Now it's time to add the sand. I lightly covered the pumpkin with my Mod Podge and then sprinkled my sand on top. The biggest tip is not to “glob” your Mod Podge on, then when you add your sand it looks inconsistent and heavy in spots.
I let the pumpkin dry completely for two hours. Once it was dry I added another coat of sand to the pumpkin.
Once your Mod Podge is dry you're ready to display!!
As you can see this is a pretty simple project to make. I just love it, and I can keep a piece of Summer with me into Fall. It's a simple pumpkin craft but I think it turned out pretty cute! Would you decorate fall pumpkins this way?
