A great no-carve pumpkin craft!
I created a decoupage photo pumpkin with some of my favorite pictures of him… I know it seems a little obsessive, but how cool is it?! I also used a faux pumpkin so I can have it for years to come. This perfect decoupage photo pumpkin can be a Halloween decoration for years to come!

    Step 3

    Paint a thin layer of Mod Pog on the back of a photo then place on the top of the pumpkin. I started from top to bottom, no order, just went with an organic pattern.

    Step 4

    Continue adding pictures on, layering from top to bottom until the entire pumpkin is covered. Embrace the crinkles… It’s decoupage so it’s supposed to have them and it gives it a cool rustic look!

  • Step 5

    Let it dry for an hour then paint a layer of Mod Pog over the entire pumpkin.

    Let that dry for 2 hours and paint another layer. Continue to paint layers until you get the texture you like on the outside. I did 4 layers of Mod Pog. Enjoy!
