Learn how to make these darling DIY Decoupage Flower Pumpkins using real pumpkins, foraged petals and Mod Podge!
Here we go, our first Halloween craft of the season! Can you believe that Halloween is one month away.
Last year, we made these decoupage confetti pumpkins that were a hit. I love using the decoupage medium to create one of a kind Halloween pumpkins.
This year we wanted to add a natural element. I went to the garden and gathered flowers. To be honest, the little yellow flowers I foraged are actually weeds.
Simply separate the petals to flatten and you have got yourself some pretty pumpkins! If you are looking for other creative ways to decorate your Halloween pumpkins, check out the string art pumpkins we made last year.

What is decoupage?
Decoupage is the art of glueing paper, tissue paper or other materials to another object (wood, plastic and pumpkins in this case). Mod Podge is the most commonly used decoupage medium. Some people make their own Mod Podge by mixing Elmers school glue and water.
