1. Place pumpkin shapes on decorative papers and trace around the shapes. Cut 1/4″ inside pattern line, cutting off stem.
2. Add small curved cuts as pictured to imply the sections of the pumpkins.
3. To create a color wash, mix acrylic paint with a little bit of water. Vary the layers of color to create color variation. Dry brush along edges with bronze. Let dry. (You can speed up the drying process by using a hair dryer.)
4. Brush the front of each pumpkin and the back of the papers with Aleene’s Decoupage, position the papers on the pumpkins and immediately brush the front of the papers so that the paper adhere smoothly to the wood. Let dry. Display in groupings.
