Instructions:

  1. Take your paper napkin and separate out the layers so that you only have the printed layer.
  2. Tear the napkin into small pieces.
  3. Wet each piece thoroughly with your watered down glue mixture.
  4. Place the wet napkin pieces onto the pumpkin in sections, and try to press them onto the pumpkin so that the napkin adheres.
  5. If you need to, you can give the pumpkin a final pressing with the foam brush.
  6. Let the pumpkin dry upside down or on wax paper so that the napkin doesn’t adhere to a surface.
  7. Enjoy in your table decor for fall!

Place Card Mini Pumpkins

I am a little biased in saying that this mini pumpkin DIY just might be my favorite. They do double duty as a favor, decor and a place card… wait! Make that triple duty. Fabulous!

Supplies:

  • Mini Pumpkin
  • Glitter Glue
  • Washi Tape
  • Scissors
  • Marker
  • Corsage Pin
  • Foam Brush
  • Wax Paper

Instructions:

  1. Cover your pumpkin with glitter glue – a LOT of glitter glue – and let dry on wax paper. Another alternative would be to cover the pumpkin in glue and sprinkle glitter on it.
  2. Take your washi tape and create a leaf. I did mine by laying 3 sections of tape side by side with a slight overlap (so they’d stick to each other!). Then I folded the entire thing in half so that it stuck together. Then, I cut out a leaf shape and wrote a name on it.
  3. Once the pumpkin is dry, take your pin and stick the leaf into the pumpkin.
  4. Voila! Set at a place setting and enjoy your fun decor. Super duper cute!!
