Instructions

  1. Using black paint and a round paintbrush paint a spooky tree on the surface of the pumpkin.  Use the image as a guide.

  2. Paint over the black paint with coffee bean brown.  Add small highlights with gunmetal gray.  With a dry brush add wispy brushstrokes from the branches and base of the tree.  Allow to dry.

  3. Cut small paper leaves from the book pages.  Using Mod Podge as a glue, attach the leaves to the branches of the trees.  Top-coat with a layer of Mod Podge.

  4. Cut pumpkins from scrapbook paper, apply a coat of Mod Podge to the back of the pumpkins, position onto the pumpkin at the base of the tree, press with your fingers and top-coat with a layer of Mod Podge.

  5. Add glitter highlights with Extreme glitter to the pumpkins and base of the tree. 

  6. Paint the stem of the pumpkin black.
