Halloween is just around the corner, so it is only fitting that this week, we focus on pumpkins. I absolutely love the many shapes, colors and sizes of pumpkins that I usually come across at our local farmers market, but this year, I wanted to take my pumpkins to a whole new color level.

With a bit of Mod Podge and some beautiful handmade paper, I managed to craft myself a beautiful variety of jewel toned pumpkins, perfect for decorating my fall tabletop.

Materials to Make Colorful Pumpkins:

Mod Podge
brush
miniature white pumpkins
colorful tissue paper.

Instructions to Make Colorful Pumpkins:

Using a paintbrush, apply a thin coat of Mod Podge over a section of the pumpkin.
Immediately cover it with a small piece of tissue paper.
Continue in small sections until the entire pumpkin is covered.
For very thin, translucent paper, you might need to do more than one coat of paper—in that case, wait until the first coat is dry before applying the second.

*Note—For the polka-dot and striped pumpkins, I just used an acrylic paint pen! Super simple!
