There are so many things to like about this DIY mod podge pumpkin craft. It’s cheap, it’s fun, it’s super easy, and it uses Mod Podge! Trust me…when you’ve finished this project, you will want to mod podge doilies on everything!

DIY Mod Podge Pumpkin Craft Supplies Needed

1.) Faux pumpkins 2.) Lace doilies  3.) Mod Podge  4.) Sponge brush 5.) Scissors 

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 DIY mod podge pumpkin craft was a blast. One thing to keep in mind. 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 big 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.

I have two of these mod podge pumpkins, and over the years, I’ve used them everywhere in my fall decor. Inside and out, in the kitchen, and in the living room. They are light-weight, and so simple to store. Both of my pumpkins look as nice today as the day I made them. If you have older children or grandchildren, this would be a fun thing to do with them. It’s also the perfect craft for a ladies night out, or senior center craft session.
