Vintage Doily Pumpkins

By: Mitzi Curi from Mitzi's Miscellany

These Vintage Doily Pumpkins from Mitzi Curi are the perfect way to decorate for the fall.  Decoupaged with vintage lace doilies in various colors, this no carve pumpkin decorating idea is great for weddings, Thanksgiving, and even Halloween.  You can use some black lace to add a more festive Halloween touch, or dye crocheted doilies various fall colors for a Thanksgiving centerpiece that's sure to impress all your guests.

Materials:

  • Vintage doilies in shades of white, cream, and ecru
  • Dried real gourds or craft store faux pumpkins and gourds
  • Mod Podge for Fabric
  • Paintbrush or foam brush
  • Spray paint in an off-white or ivory
  • Tin foil
  • Wax paper

 

Instructions:

  1. The only prep work I did prior to painting was covering the gourd stems with tin foil.

  2. A couple light coats of paint with drying time in between was adequate to give the pumpkins an even color.
     
  3. I selected just the right doilies to fit each pumpkin. I cut some of them apart into smaller shapes that were easier to fit onto the pumpkin.  For the two small pumpkins, I just used one whole doily which I slipped over the stem to create a slightly different look.

  4. I usually cover my work table with wax paper when I work with Mod Podge.  I followed the directions on the bottle when applying the Fabric Mod Podge to the doilies.

  5. After coating one side of the doilies, place them on the pumpkin and tap all the edges down with your fingers.  Once the pieces are adhered to the pumpkins, wait for two hours while the initial coat dries.  Then a topcoat of Mod Podge can be applied to the entire piece.
