DecoArt your Pumpkins!!

DecoArt sells more than just paint! Although that is awesome!
They sell decoupage  for gluing different types of stuff. 
To start my craft pumpkins (from Joann Fabrics) I painted them both white, then I decoupaged a fall napkin that I found at Dollar Tree. Be sure and peel apart the layers-you only need the printed layer. Then rip it in different sizes. I covered the whole smaller pumpkin.
Then painted the stem brown.

I go so busy on the next step-I forgot to take pictures!! I used their antiquing creams in
Brown.  I then finished with their Metallic Lustre's in Rose Gold, Iced Espresso and Orange Flicker. Up close you can see the brilliant shine from this product.

I saw a tutorial on Facebook that showed me how to make my bows. 

 A little trip to Big Lots completed my tablescape!  A runner and a little bouquet of flowers.
It turned out great! Thanks to DecoArt.
