  2. Trim the orange paper to fit the pumpkin. Trim the Thanksgiving paper to the shape of the stem. Apply Mod Podge Satin to the pumpkin and to the back of the orange paper. Position the paper onto the painted pumpkin. Use a squeegee to remove any wrinkles. Apply the stem piece in the same fashion.
  3. Allow to dry for 15 minutes, Top-coat with Clear Chalkboard. Use two coats with dry time in between. Once dry, season with chalk by rubbing chalk over the surface. Wipe clean.
