Super easy Mod Podge Pumpkin: a quick autumn craft that’s perfect for kids and adults. Adds a classic, vintage touch to your fall decor.
Please don’t faint from shock. Yes…you are at the right blog. This is a craft post. I actually opened my jar of Mod Podge, and used it to make this Mod Podge pumpkin. And you know what? It was fun! It took just minutes, and I love the vintage look it gives the faux pumpkin.

Mod Podge Pumpkin Supplies Needed
With your scissors, open the hole in the center of the doily. They all have a hole in the middle. Open it up and place it over the stem of the pumpkin to make sure it fits. Remove it and set aside. Using the sponge brush, apply a thick coat of Mod Podge on the top of the pumpkin. Mod Podge dries clear, so it doesn’t matter if you cover more area than the doily needs.
Place the doily back on the pumpkin, and press it into the Mod Podge. Stretch it out, and make sure it’s placed where you want it. Dab a good amount of Mod Podge around the opening of the doily so it doesn’t fray. Let it dry.
Apply a second coat of Mod Podge over the doily and let it dry completely.
This mod podge pumpkin project was a blast. I plan to make a few more and will show you how I I use them soon. I seriously considered using vintage lace doilies, but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. I just didn’t want to cut them. If you have a collection of lace doilies, and don’t mind giving up a few, you could definitely use them for this project. That would be a great way to recycle what you already have. One more note…I used a small pumpkin with a small doily. Doilies and faux pumpkins come in all sizes, so it’s a personal choice what size(s) you make.
