Doable Wedding Diy: Decoupage Pumpkins

In previous Styling a Wedding posts I have highlighted pumpkins twice in a row.  Last week, I’ve discovered a DIY tutorial on how to paint pumpkins to match your wedding motif.  Here’s another lovely idea on what you can do with pumpkins or other gourds ~ turn them into decoupage!

The term “decoupage” originated from the French word “decouper”, which means “to cut”.  It is the art of cutting out figures (usually from paper), pasting them into an object, and then covering it in varnish or lacquer to give it a textured finish.  The technique is commonly done in vases and decorative objects, and this time around, in pumpkins.  {source}  You can see the step-by-step guide on how to make these beautiful decoupage wedding pumpkin decor at Pocketful of Dreams.
