Primp Your Pumpkin Home Decor

Primp Your Pumpkin Home Decor


Everyone ielegant fall home decors thinking about the change of seasons these days and that includes me. The first day of Autumn is on Sunday, according to the calender. I am soo ready! When I saw a fun party for holiday home decor and craftiness at my lovely friend Shannon’s blog, Fox Hollow Cottage I knew I wanted  to join in.  It’s a Primp Your Pumpkin Party! There are some wonderful pumpkins included in the party and Shannon’s are lovely too.

I gathered up some crafty supplies and got down to business. I had already started painting a bit when I realized I should take a photo. Because lets face it, I’m making time to be crafty and that is blog worthy. :-)

For my pumpkins I used

modge podge

styrofoam pumpkins

wrapping paper


sponge brushes

                                                                                   disposable bowl


and the watchful eye of Izzy my creative supervisor

Carefully remove the stems. Cut strips of wrapping paper. Brush on some modge podge. Add a piece of wrapping paper, repeat until completely covered.Brush modge podge all over . Let dry and paint stems. replace stems and taa daa.

schapsoMy big taa daa moment!

Modge podge is so fun, it’s like paper mache’ for grown ups, giggle.

My primped pumpkins are sitting on our living room mantle . A hopeful reminder of the upcoming season change. It’s still very warm here, but fingers crossed, my favorite season will show up, not just on the calendar but outside too.

  10. Jennifer Fay

    very pretty. I figured out how people can get massive detail for the cut pumpkins. they use linoleum cutters!!!

    1. Katherines Corner

      that is brilliant!!!

  11. Angela

    This is so, so pretty! One of the nicest ones I’ve seen!!! Looks very spendy and rich! Love it! ~~Angela

      Thank you Angela, I loved creating them and it makes me smile when I see them on the mantle. xo

    Aw, the cake plate looks so cute with your new pumpkins. It was a good idea to buy it! AND those pumpkins look MUCH better than what we saw at the store! You’re so ‘crafty’. Can’t wait so see what ends up on the platter for the rest of the holidays.

  19. K. Elizabeth @ YUMMommy

    What gorgeous pumpkin. And what I like most is that since you picked such an elegant pattern you could pretty much leave the pumpkins out year round without them feeling too Autumn-ish. Stopping by from TGIF hop.

    1. Katherines Corner

      what a lovely idea, thank you, I could probably put them in our guest room. :-)

  20. Rosey

    It’s awesome! I’m pinning it, definitely. :)
