Summer is in our rearview mirrors and fall is upon us. Fall decorating is in full swing at 716. In the coming days I will share a few of my favorite fall decorating projects. One of my recent favorites – this simple fall leaves silhouette pumpkin project.
I found my pumpkins at Old Time Pottery for around $6. Most major craft stores carry faux pumpkins. Choose a shape and color that tickles your fancy and you are ready to go. Using Pinterest, I searched and found the free leaf silhouettes to download. I printed the silhouettes on standard copy paper and trimmed them.
Next, using Mod Podge and a brush, I applied the leaf silhouettes to the pumpkins.
I added the leaf silhouettes to the pumpkins at imperfect angles using the Mod Podge and let them dry – Voila.
I placed the leaf silhouette pumpkins on four small scalloped cake stands from World Market. The added height helps display the pumpkins on a sofa table.
These fall leaves silhouettes pack a big fall punch. Grab some Mod Podge and let’s get this season started.
