Mod podge pumpkin! {Fall decorating}

Love playing with mod podge!
and I love Fall decorating!
Pumpkins are of course all the decorating rage now, with Fall and Halloween of course they would be. I had a plan!
Remember this?.....

ahhhh..yes, I had a vision...

I hunted and gathered some pretty Fall leaves from our backyard....

WELL, things did not work out for me with this project...
oh crap now what?

hmmm....I have this very old cookbook that I scored from an antique store some time ago.
I love how some is even hand written and other recipes are pinned in the book.

I suppose I could make a kitchen recipe mod podge pumpkin!
So that's what I did....

I was able to mod podge the outdoor leaves, and topped off the pumpkins with them.

Maybe this was a better idea, than the original!

I even left the pins in tact.

Check out some of the pages, talks about phosphates and energy, etc...
pretty neat.  What I am gathering is this woman would cut out recipes from the paper that she liked, then pin them in her own personal cook book.  Not sure just a guess.
Oh btw, all these pages I used were loose leaf.
 I did not tear anything out, they were already falling out.

And here you have my mod podge kitchen recipe pumpkin!

Perhaps there are more out there in google/blog land, but I checked and did not see a specific kitchen recipe one.
If you do, let me know I would love to see it.

Another cute idea would be to mod podge some terra cotta pots with the kitchen recipe, and then add herbs to the pots...
see my mind is already thinking ahead!

You are ever so crafty and creative. Where do you get your energy and ideas? I want some of that drug.

Very clever idea Debbie. That would be perfect in a kitchen or dining room. I'd probably make copies of the recipes though and use the copies if I was going to make one, but only because I love collecting recipes. The history behind the ones people keep and make notes always feel too personal for me to throw away or use in another project.

Have a great night Debbie!

That is adorable Deb! I like the idea of using a cookbook on it!

BTW I downloaded Goggle Chrome and it still didn't work! It's only on the ones it seems that have the dropdown!

Hi Debbie...

Oooh...I just love your olden recipe decoupaged pumpkin, my friend! It turned out sooo pretty! Bet you had lots of fun doing this. Was just wondering...are the leaves that you used to embellish the top of the pumpkin...real leaves? And...if so...did you mod podge them as well? They look fabulous!

Thank you for sharing your new autumn pretty with us! What a creative and talented lady you are, my friend!

Warmest autumn wishes,
