Dollar Tree Crackle Pumpkin Decor

You will need:

*Pumpkin cut-out-Dollar Tree

*Mod podge

*Orange paint

*Waverly “moss” paint

*Khaki apple barrel paint

*Ribbon-optional

The first step is to paint your pumpkin orange and your stem with the khaki color.

Once that is dry, you will then brush on a coat of mod podge. You can also use Elmer’s glue for this step if you don’t mod podge on hand.

Once that is dry it is now time to paint the pumpkin with the Waverly “moss” color.

As this starts to dry, it will begin to crackle. Once dried completely I also ran my sanding block over it to expose a little more of the orange color underneath.

Next, I took a strip of this rust colored burlap and cut it to fit across the center of the pumpkin. I found this at Hobby Lobby in the Fall section.

I used mod podge to glue this down and then added the “blessed” word on top. This pack of words also came from Hobby Lobby.

Now to finish the project off, I made a bow using a Fall ribbon I had on hand from Michael’s and some orange deco mesh from Dollar Tree. I simply crisscrossed the ribbon and mesh and tied in the center with a piece of jute twine.

So, what do you think? Pretty stinkin’ cute if you ask me! Be sure to share a picture if you give this project a try!
