How to Decoupage Pumpkins & Chargers
To begin this fun DIY, spray paint or brush an old charger with white acrylic paint. Note: you will not be able to wash these chargers once they are decoupaged.
Allow plate to dry before next step. Follow the photos below for each application. This is an easy project. If you don’t like the blue & white, just find paper napkins that you love and use those. Just remember to separate the paper napkin. See instructions below.
Whether creating centerpiece or chargers keep in mind that the items cannot be washed or dipped in water. The napkin will crumble and peel off.
Be sure to paint the charger or pumpkin pure white before applying colorful napkin. The color of the pumpkin or charger will show through the thin napkin ply so painting the base a good coat of white will make your napkin shine!
I used a bristle brush but you can use a sponge either one will work for applying the decoupage liquid. Have a cup of water handy to place the brush in between applications of Mod -Podge to keep the brush from drying. I used Mod -Podge matte finish but you can use whatever sheen you want.
Remove stem from faux pumpkin before applying podge for best results. Hot glue back in place when piece is dry.
Allow the pieces to dry completely before using or displaying.
