DO-IT-YOURSELF NATURE PUMPKINS

Adorn your pumpkins with a little bit of nature. Take a walk outside and find autumn inspiration nearly everywhere. With just a few clippings from your garden, you can transform ordinary pumpkins into a nature-inspired masterpiece.

What You'll Need:

  • Faux or Live Pumpkins in any color or size
  • Fine-leaf ferns, boxwood or other foliage
  • Pansies or Violas
  • Dusty Miller
  • Spray Adhesive
  • Modpodge
  1. Choose pumpkins you'd like to embellish.
  2. Collect a selection of cuttings. We recommend using fine foliage as it adheres to the pumpkin easily.
  3. Spray the back of your botanicals and working quickly arrange on pumpkin.
  4. Add several layers of modpodge over the botanicals and pumpkin letting each layer dry in between.
  5. Place your finished creation in an undisturbed location to let dry overnight.
  6. Scatter these beautifully embellished pumpkins throughout your home or even wire to a wreath and enjoy!
