Off the Page and onto a Pumpkin

When it comes to pumpkins, most people carve them. Some people actually enjoy digging into a pumpkin and getting their hands filled with all of the wet, gooey insides. If you are NOT one of these people, you will love this no carve pumpkin!

This project takes scrapbooking off the page and onto a pumpkin! Adding your favorite papers, stickers, and embellishments to a pumpkin allow you to display your work in an unexpected way! The Simple Stories Sweater Weather is a great collection to add to a pumpkin. The designs and embellishments in this collection are the perfect way to carry you through the Fall season.

Here's what you'll need:
- Pumpkin
- Mod Podge
- Scissors
- Glue
- White Acrylic Paint Spray Paint
- Paint Brush

Let's get crafty!

Step 1: Paint your pumpkins. I originally went with acrylic paint (since it is all I had), but decided that was not the best idea. I put a sticker on my pumpkin and when removed it so I could reposition my sticker, the paint came off with the sticker! So, I went and got spray paint, which worked much better! Let the paint dry.

Step 2: Cut your your paper, grab your embellishments, stickers, etc. Arrange your layout.

Step 3: Glue your layout to your pumpkin using Mod Podge. Place a layer of Mod Podge over your paper to seal it. Let your Mod Podge dry.

Step 4: I added a raffia bow to my stem and put a heart brad in the center.
