Book page pumpkin {fall craft}

One of my favorite things about fall is PUMPKINS! I love to decorate with them and I especially love baking with them. There’s just something about them you can’t help but love. Today I’m going to show you a fun little fall craft… a book page pumpkin. ๐Ÿ™‚

Supplies:

  • Pumpkin from Hobby Lobby
  • Newspaper or old book (find one from Goodwill)
  • Foam brush
  • decoupage
  • Glamour dust

Instructions:

1. Paint a thick coat of decoupage onto the pumpkin stem.

2. Then pour the glitter onto the stem and shake off the excess. I did this same thing with the acorns pictured above.

3. Tear strips (about 3 x 1 in) from an old book. Place a thin layer of decoupage onto the pumpkin. Push the paper onto the pumpkin and then apply another layer of decoupage so it sticks. Repeat this process all the way around the pumpkin. Note: Your hands will get messy! ๐Ÿ˜‰

You can add a few rhinestones on top for a little extra bling! Then display your new book page pumpkins! See wasn’t that easy?!

  1. That’s a great idea. Normally, I wouldn’t tear up a book for anything – but I can see that getting a used copy of a favorite Jane Austen, for example, would be fun to use for this craft and then give it to someone who loves Jane Austen. It could keep them busy for hours. SO CUTE!!

  2. Very cute Idea! I have some well-worn pumpkins and this will be just the thing to update them for another 5 years! Thanks!

  3. WOW! That looks so much easier than I would have imagined! And I love how it turned out. My husband and I are book lovers so I think this would be a really fun thing for us to have in our home this fall. I wonder if I would be brave enough to let my almost two year old help me. ๐Ÿ™‚ (I’m shaking my head “no” vigorously as I type this.)

    I’ve never really worked with decoupage, is it thick or runny? Also, does it work on lots of different types of materials? Specifically ribbon? Sorry if you don’t know! This post just got my creative mind stirring!

    Thanks for the post, can’t wait to try!!!

  4. For those of you who wouldn’t want to wreck a book – I just found text wrapping paper at Target in the $1.00 section at the front! YAY!
