Here’s how to embellish pumpkins with lace

 

STEP ONE

 

Gather all supplies.  Basecoat exterior of paper mache pumpkin with Spiced Pumpkin paint.  Let dry and then apply a second coat, if necessary.

STEP TWO

 

Create dimension on your pumpkin with Jack-O-Lantern Orange for the highlights and Burnt Orange for the low lights.  Blend all edges of the paint colors so there are no sharp lines.  Let dry.

STEP THREE

 

Hold a scrap of cardboard under the paper mache leaves and base coat with Hauser Light Green.  Let dry and apply a second coat if necessary.  Add dimension by painting on the veins in the leaves with Hauser Medium Green.

Carefully roll the leaves around the stem and position the doily over the top of the pumpkin.

Lift up the doily and generously apply Decou-Page Medium over the entire surface of the pumpkin that comes in contact with the lace doily.

STEP SIX

 

Apply a generous coat of Decou-Page Medium over the top of the lace doily.  Make sure to get into all of the nooks and crannies of the lace and don’t worry about the excess because it will dry clear.
