So I have been seeing fabric pumpkins everywhere in the blogging world and I have been telling myself that I want to try making it but I don't have as much cute fabric as I do paper. I am a paper addict - I admit it and I know that it is a problem so I need to make more using paper. So I had an extra styrofoam ball from the candy corn topiary and thought - hmmm pumpkin! So here comes some Modge Podge, scrapbook paper, and the stryofoam ball.
First, I cut some strips of paper out - they were 1 1/4" by 12". That fit around the ball that is 4 inches.
Next, I cut off some of the bottom so the ball would lay flat.
Then, I started to Modge Podge the strips of paper and put them on the ball. I used some pins to hold the paper into place until it dried a little bit. The paper would crinkle up as I continued to put it around the ball but I liked the look so I keep going.
When I had all the strips in place, I put some circles of paper to cap the ends and put another layer of Modge Podge on it.
I had a piece of stick or square dowel and I cut off a piece of it for the stem. I painted it a brown color and tied some tulle and ribbon on it for decoration. Let me know what you think. This was simple but I still might have to try a fabric pumpkin. According to me, you can never get enough fall decorations.
Thanks and I hope you enjoy your crafting!
