Beautiful Painted & Decoupaged Pumpkins

Who doesn't love decorating with pumpkins in autumn and of course for Halloween? 
How about trying something new this year? Instead of carving a pumpkin, 
try painting or decoupaging it instead. 

The basic decoupage supplies that you will need are: decoupage 
medium (Mod Podge is commonly the chosen decoupage medium of the masses),
a wide brush or sponge brush to apply the decoupage medium, and of course you 
will need whatever material you plan on applying to your pumpkin. Some ideas
include: paper party or guest napkins, lightweight material scraps, paper images, 
sheet music, and tissue paper. 

For painted pumpkins, you can use a variety of different types of paint, from basic
household spray paint (please follow the manufacturer's instructions for use and 
work in a well-ventilated area, such as outside), to acrylic craft paint. Check out a
few of my favorite painted and decoupaged decorate pumpkin inspirations 
below and maybe you'll be inspired to create a unique pumpkin too!
