DIY Leopard Print Pumpkin
There are so many ways to makeover a plain pumpkin. I like to use leopard print because I feel like it gives that pop to any decor. When I was thinking of what I wanted to do with this pumpkin, leopard print was the answer. It only takes a few supplies to create this pumpkin, and I will walk you through step by step!
Supplies need to make leopard print pumpkin
(5) 3 pack of 54 gallon paint sticks – Lowes or AMAZON STORE
12″ paint sticks
Paint- any color you like, my sign was done using Waverly Ink Color and Agave
Leopard print paper – Hobby Lobby
Pumpkin – Hobby Lobby
Let’s start off by cutting our pumpkin! This started off as a very large pumpkin I bought from Hobby Lobby. I used some scissors and really had to work at it to get it cut, but after some work I got the job done.
Next, all you have to do is tear your leopard print paper into pieces so that it will be easier to mod podge onto the pumpkin.
Here’s a tip, tear your paper on the back side and it will eliminate showing the white tear marks
You will need a lot of mod podge because you have to coat the pumpkin generously. Make sure to coat the pumpkin in sections. Also, make sure to apply it to the back of the leopard paper and the pumpkin for extra stick. I just started laying it in all directions, covering the entire pumpkin. Once I was happy, I put even more mod podge all over the pumpkin to seal it. Now, put it to the side and start working on the sign while it dries.
For the sign I used 5 gallon paint sticks. I lined them vertically and then used 12 inch paint sticks horizontally as the support.
Once you have your base secure, start painting. This is the fun part because you can choose any color you like! I chose a black background and used the agave paint. I like to just add the agave lightly in some sections to give it that cool affect.
I am absolutely loving how this is coming together. Now I happen to have a pumpkin sign I picked up at Target and the banner from AMAZON STORE.
Then grab some embellishments and make it look awesome!
I know this look isn’t for everyone and usually I decorate in neutral colors but this was something I’m glad I did! It’s fun to come out of your comfort zone and try something new. If you loved this I would love for you to comment below and let me know.
Also I know life gets busy so make sure you save the leopard print pumpkin and Pin It so you always have it on your boards. Here’s another project you may like Diy Copper Leaf Pumpkin
