DIY Fall Pumpkin Table Decor with IOD Moulds and Inlays
Transforming pumpkins with IOD moulds is one of our favorite autumn crafts, and we’re excited to guide you through creating your very own. Once you master this technique, feel free to explore Pinterest for additional inspiration, experimenting with various colors and moulds to make something unique that fits your style.
In this tutorial, we’ve chosen a paper mache pumpkin for its distinct textured appearance. If you prefer a smoother canvas, foam or plastic pumpkins are excellent alternatives.
To add an extra touch of elegance, we’ve incorporated the Rose Chintz paint inlay into our design. Remember, since paint inlays are water-reactive, you’ll definitely want to seal your artwork upon completion.
For sealing, you have options: either a spray-on sealer or a brush application. If you choose the latter, prep the surface with a light mist of a 50/50 mixture of polyurethane and water. This step is key to preventing any smudging of your beautiful design!
