Step 1: Cut Paper

Begin by cutting out elements of your paper to decoupage onto the pumpkin. Cut a mix of large and small pieces; larger pieces will make up the base layer that covers the majority of the pumpkin, and you can fill in with prettier small pieces. 

Look for paper with large bold patterns. They'll stand out best on the pumpkin. Choose a pattern that has lines that can be easily cut out for the cleanest look.

Step 2: Decoupage Pumpkin

Paint a layer of decoupage over a small area of the pumpkin. Place a piece of cut paper onto the glue, pressing the paper into the grooves of the pumpkin, and paint over with another layer of decoupage. Repeat this process with large pieces all the way around the bottom half of the pumpkin.

Step 3: Fill Gaps

Use the same process to add smaller pieces to fill gaps and create a pretty border around the top, leaving the top of the pumpkin exposed. To personalize the project even more, you can paint the pumpkin beforehand - just make sure it is completely dry before you begin decoupaging! 

Try displaying these stunning pumpkins in a bowl as a centerpiece or attached to a simple greenery wreath.
