  • A faux pumpkin
  • black and white photos
  • Water based glue like - Mod Podge
  • a paintbrush.


  • Print about 50 of your favorite photos in black and white on regular paper. All different sizes and cut them out.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • 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!


allow 2 hours to dry between layers
