How to Make a Cheetah Print Pumpkin DIY Fall Decor
Start this project by hot gluing the two Dollar Tree signs together so that there is a base on the top and bottom of the sign.
Then, paint the entire sign with white paint. I used Apple Barrel Snow White Acrylic Paint because not only is it affordable, but great quality for my DIY decor projects!
Once the white paint is completely dry, apply a coat of Mod Podge to the middle portion of the sign and place the tissue paper on the Mod Podge.
Place a piece of plastic saran wrap over the tissue paper and smooth out any wrinkles or bubbles in the tissue paper.
Once the Mod Podge is dry, remove the excess tissue paper from the sign. Next, I decoupaged the cheetah print napkin onto the wood circle.
First, paint the wood with white paint, then apply a coat of Mod Podge. Separate the plies of your napkin and place the patterned ply onto the wood circle.
Bring it all together
Apply the Waverly Antique wax to the frame parts of the sign and wipe the excess off with a wet wipe. Then, hot glue the decoupaged wood circle at the bottom of the sign.
Next, cut the nautical rope and fray one end of it to create the stem for your pumpkin. Hot glue it at the top of the decoupaged wood circle.
Then, I brushed the Waverly Antique Wax over the nautical rope to give it more of a darker color. Now, it’s time to make the bow!
Cut a few strips of the yellow ribbon, lace ribbon, burlap ribbon, and some raffia. Place them in an X pattern, alternating as you go. Pinch and secure the center with a piece of jute twine.
Hot glue the bow at the base of the stem, hot glue some pieces of the Dollar Tree eucalyptus around the bow, then hot glue the sunflower over the center of the bow.
Finally, hot glue the Spanish moss at the base of the cheetah print pumpkin!
