This pumpkin craft uses Mod Podge and fabric to turn a gourd into fantastic fall decor! Learn how easy it is to make with this great tutorial.
Fall is almost over BUT I wanted to do one last pumpkin craft while I can. On a recent trip to Wal-Mart I found this awesome anchor fabric. I’ve done several Mod Podge pumpkin crafts, but I’ve never done one with fabric.
I knew I had to give it a try!! This anchor pattern was perfect to try out.
For this pumpkin craft you’re going to need:
- Mod Podge Matte
- Foam Pumpkin
- Glue Fun
Since I just got the material at Wal-Mart (for .99 cents!!) I just needed to round up the rest of my supplies.
Time to get crafting!
Step 1 – Remove Stem
If your able, remove your pumpkin stem before you start the craft. With this foam pumpkin I was able to pull it right out!
Step 2 – Cut Material into Strips
I cut my material into LONG strips. Long enough to fit down the pumpkin.
Step 3 – Mod Podge on Material
I added on my Mod Podge first, then gently laying my material on top. I added another coat of Mod Podge on top of that and smoothed down with my foam brush.
Next I used my fingers to push the material into the grooves of the pumpkin. I did a section at a time, letting them dry for 10 minutes each.
Step 4 – Wrap Stem in Rope
Finally I wrapped the stem in some decorative rope. I used my “trusty” hot glue gun to keep my rope in place.
This was such a quick and easy project. Plus I think I like using material better then scrapbook paper. It really makes it a lot easier.
But I do still have ALL my Fall decor up. I can’t take it down before Thanksgiving!
