I love an easy but pretty craft. And I know you do, too! Today I am going to show you how I made this pretty and chic feathers decoupage pumpkin to decorate my home. This year I am not adding much orange to my fall home decor but more blacks and neutral colors. I was standing in front of these pretty orange pumpkins, but I just could not put them in my basket. I found great white ones at Trader Joes so those came home with me. I am in love with feathers. Not so much of birds, though. But feathers are so fascinating and each of them is unique in a way. I picked up a few bags of feathers at Michael’s the other day and as soon as these white pumpkins got home, these feathers were decoupaged on minutes later. I think I even waited with putting out the groceries from the bags.
Yep. Tha’s how I roll. When some crazy idea hits my mind, it has to be done right away.
Isn’t this feather just gorgeous?
- white pumpkin, real or fake
- paint brush
- a wet paper towel
As you see, I only added so much feather to the pumpkin. I did not want to over do it so I added the feathers spaced out. I only picked out the ones that had white dots on them.
I applied a small amount of mod podge to the pumpkin’s surface then I pushed the feather onto the pumpkin with my brush and fingers. I nicely finished it with another couple brushstrokes to make sure that the feather was nice and smooth.
I let the mod podge dry thoroughly. I used a wet paper towel to clean the mod podge around the feather where there was a lot. It was a super easy and quick ” pretty me up” moment for this ordinary pumpkin. I added a piece of black fabric to the stem and I stick in a few more feathers to the top to embellish.
Love it? Pin it:-)
What do you think? I think it’s LOVELY. It looks perfect on my dining room table on that crazy fun KILIM runner from Target.
