Looking for easy pumpkin decorating ideas, this mod podged pumpkin features gorgeous watercolor wrapping paper, and is perfect for your fall decor. This is a great kid’s fall craft, too!

It may not officially be fall, but Labor Day has passed and school has begun, so it’s close enough for me. Looking for an easy pumpkin decorating idea to add a dose of fall to my home, I pulled out my trusty Mod Podge, and some watercolor floral wrapping paper and ended up with the cutest pumpkin around!

Want to make your own? Here’s what you need:


Let’s take a closer look at this floral wrapping paper. Isn’t it lovely? I found it at Michaels, though, really any thin paper would do, whether it’s wrapping paper, tissue paper or scrapbook paper. I’d stay away from cardstock, as thicker paper can require more work to adhere properly to your pumpkin.

Simply cut strips of your paper (approximately 1″ wide), apply a coat of Mod Podge to a small section of your pumpkin, and apply your strips to your pumpkin, making sure it adheres completely. Once you’re pumpkin is covered, let dry, and apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to seal.

I just love how this turned out. Super cute, and EASY, too! I love crafting with Mod Podge, how about you?
