My latest Dollar Store Pumpkin makeover is in bright traditional fall colors using a pretty floral fall napkin.
This fall for some reason I have been distracted by crafting Dollar Store pumpkin makeovers. See the picture below, also a napkin and part of a little vignette I created.

How To Decoupage A Napkin To A Styrofoam Pumpkin
CUT OR TEAR
This is a really easy craft. It is just a matter of either cutting or tearing the napkin into workable pieces and gluing them to the pumpkin using Mod Podge.
Making small cuts along the way helps to keep the wrinkles to a minimum. It isn’t very difficult to match up the pattern. I usually do small sections at a time applying small amounts of Mod Podge to the pumpkin and smoothing the napkin onto it. It’s easier to smooth out the wrinkles when you do small sections.
Peel apart the layers of the napkin before beginning. You only want to glue the top layer to the pumpkin. If you do not want the orange to show through, then you can paint the pumpkin white first.
One of the great things about using decorative napkins for dollar store pumpkin makeovers is that it only takes a couple. Each package of napkins contains more than enough so go ahead and match your patterns.
Allow ample drying time after applying the napkins to the pumpkin. Then I cover the exterior with about three coats of Mod Podge allowing each coat to dry before adding the next. This serves as a sealer and leaves a nice shine.
The stem is covered with jute and the top is embellished with a couple of faux leaves from my fall decor.
This Dollar Tree pumpkin makeover made a nice addition to our Fall Beverage Bar which you can get the details of right here.
