Book Page Pumpkins

Earlier this year, I made some book page eggs for Easter decoration. I just loved them so much that I left them out with my other dining room decorations until just recently.
Hey, eggs aren't really just specific to Easter right?

So I used the same technique and made a few of these book page pumpkins!
{and alot easier to do that the eggs, I might add!}
Just LOVE how they turned out!

Here's a quick little run down of how I made them....

First I grabbed these items:
pumpkins: from Dollar Tree
book: From Dollar Tree
Some Mod Podge
and a bit of spanish moss if you wish.

I simply ripped the pages into various pieces and started putting them on with the mod podge glue.
{and I just realized that I've always called it "modge podge", but looking at the picture just now it clearly says "mod podge" on the bottle. Huh..... learn something new everyday I guess!!}

Here's a shot halfway through the process.

And then I added a bit of spanish moss to the top (hot glued) and stuck a piece of a tree branch from my backyard in for the stem.
That's all there is to it!
What I also love is that you can find any ugly old pumpkins you might have in a pile to get rid of and decorate them using this idea. You don't have to buy expensive pretty pumpkins!
