Take a look....it's so easy! In case you don't remember how decoupage works, here are the easy steps!
My friend Amanda gave me this ceramic pumpkin trio a couple years ago (thanks Amanda!).
To change them up a bit, I used:
- Decoupage glue
- Rub n' Buff in Gold Leaf
- Foam brush
- Sheet music (although you can use any kind of paper you like)
To start, I used Rub 'n Buff on the pumpkin stems....because everything is prettier when it's gold! I wore a plastic glove for this step, so I didn't have to scrub the Rub 'n Buff off of my finger.
Now, if you're a decoupage veteran, you'll know what to do next. Coat your project surface with the decoupage glue, as well as the backside of your paper.
Apply your paper to the surface, glue side to glue side. Add a top coat of glue to your paper. Don't worry! It dries clear!
I was a little worried that the orange would show through the white paper, but in the end, it dried completely opaque!
Here's how they look now!
What do you guys think? Have you decoupaged anything recently?! I've been enjoying looking at my new pumpkins around the house, along with my other fall decor. I'm going to share that with you guys later this week! Have you decorated for fall yet? Let me know in the comments!
