Faux Pumpkin Makeover

After seeing adorable pumpkins on Confessions of a Plate Addict, where she was inspired by Country Living, I had to give them a try.  I hadn't used Mod Podge in years, having done numerous projects back in the 1960's-1970's.   I was anxious to try it again!!  A friend & I got together & we did these cute cheetah print pumpkins.  The faux pumpkins were from Michael's and the tissue paper was from Hobby Lobby.  Of course, Mod Podge can be found at either of those places.  We tore the tissue paper into strips, put Mod Podge on the back & stuck them on.  You really need strips to fit onto the pumpkin.  After they were all glued on, then a final coat of Mod Podge went over the entire pumpkin.  For added embellishment, we added some decorative elements.  For a good tutorial, check the above site.  I think the cheetah pumpkin turned out pretty cute!
