We made these blue toile and plaid pumpkins using acrylic paint, mod podge, and our blue toile napkins! We used foam pumpkins for this craft and lots of dusty blue and white paint. To paper mâche the toile pattern on, we pulled back the paper layer of the toile napkins and adhered the front to the surface of the pumpkin with mod podge.

These truly add such a unique twist on traditional Thanksgiving decor and make such make such a stunning statement on any holiday table.
