The phrase commonly used today is 'pumpkin spice everything,' but for us, a twist can be applied for it to say 'pumpkin craft everything'. 'Tis the season of pumpkins, and we are adoring the way mambi Design Team member Erica Canant (IG | blog) used mambiSHEETS to decoupage cardboard pumpkins for her outdoor autumn display.
About this project, Erica writes:
"Every fall, I love to make some sort of fall display outside our door. Fall is definitely my favorite season and it's my second favorite time of the year to decorate (sorry, can't beat Christmas time for me). As I walked the aisles of Hobby Lobby one day with my mom (like we do at least once a week), I came across these adorable Papier-mâché pumpkins. Once I saw those cute little guys, I knew I wanted to decoupage them using mambiSHEETS and use them in my fall display!"

"What you'll need:
• Papier-mâché pumpkins
• Modge Podge or any other decoupage glue
• A brush
• Your favorite mambi washi
I cut strips and decoupage'd away! For the stem of the pumpkins, I used some gold washi. Really, any of the mambi washi would make the stems pop! And voilà - cute and unique pumpkins for your fall display! And although I didn't do this project with my little ones (they're toddlers and modpodge just didn't seem like a good idea), this would be a great project to do with your older kiddos during this fun fall and Halloween season!"
