Easy Damask Pumpkin using trashed craft supplies.

Remember my first pumpkin of the season and that it was a major Craft Fail?  (The one with the orange feathers that looked like a cross between a Muppet and pumpkin…?)  Well, I hate to throw things away…
And remember my easy DIY Halloween invitations?  Well, I hate to throw scraps of cute paper away…

What’s a girl to do?  Why, salvage both items, of course.  I made a Damask Pumpkin.

I took that sad pumpkin (which still looked like it had orange mange, even after I cleaned it off), my scraps of Damask print paper and some Sparkle Mod Podge  and got started.

All of the paper scraps had the same basic pattern, to starting at the top and working my way down, I did my best to line up the pattern as I Mod Podged the paper to the pumpkin.  I found that slightly damping the paper strips made them easier to smooth into the pumpkin’s grooves.

Definitely a way to make sure that none of my craft supplies go to waste.  We like that!
