Make your own decorative pumpkin for the season.

It’s the season, whether it is Halloween or Fall, this DIY Decorative Pumpkin works. I started with a plan to add flowers and a bow at the top, but after finishing the pumpkin, it was grand enough on its own. Nothing more is needed.


I found the pumpkin and napkins at Hobby Lobby. To apply the napkin, I made a mixture of white glue and water that got applied with a foam brush. Before applying the napkin, separate the layers and tear it into pieces.

This project turned out better than I envisioned. The Easter Bunny Decor is made from a foam shape, napkins, and ribbons that I purchased at the Dollar Tree. It was a fun decoupage process. My youngest daughter loves bunnies and claimed this as her own.

Above is the back view of the bunny. Pink flowers on the napkin are so bright and perfect for spring. The green leaves were added over the first layer of napkins. This added activity and visual direction to the final piece. In total, it took two napkins to cover the bunny because I needed to grab a few more green leaves.

When I saw this napkin at the Dollar Tree, I knew I wanted to use it with some kind of candle craft. I love this technique for making a festive candle for your Christmas decor. But, depending on the design of your napkin, you can do this any time of the year or for any season.
