Fabric Covered Halloween Pumpkin

So, I saw those mod-podged pumpkins in Country Living that *everyone* is talking about this October and I thought I would try my hand at it. Problem is....I don't keep colored ink in my printer and I'm not going to go buy some ridiculously priced ink for this ONE project. 

So, I just used fabric (that would have been scanned and printed onto paper, had I been following their directions) that I had on hand and wrapped it around my plastic pumpkin to get an idea of how much I needed. Then I trimmed out the piece, covered the (wrong side) middle of the fabric with Elmer's Spray Adhesive and pressed it onto the plastic pumpkin. I did my best to keep the creases near the valleys of the pumpkin and I trimmed off the extra fabric at the top and bottom. I used hot glue to made the top and bottom sections lay nicely....and then I used a little fabric rosette wrap around the stem to cover up the extra fabric on top. 

It's certainly not as smooth and fancy as all the mod-podged pumpkins out there, but I will say took a lot less time!!

I shared this post at the following parties:

Pom Pom Pumpkins

This is my latest in fall decor creations. :-) Now that I know how to make pom poms....I just can't help myself. I've been using THIS pom pom tutorial from Martha Stewart. To make these pumpkins, I just used orange tissue paper, green floral wire (instead of white), and a green tissue paper top. To make the twirling vine, I just swirled the wire around my finger a couple of times.  
You have GOT to try these!! They're pretty simple and, in my opinion, quite cute!!
I linked up to these parties!!
