Make It: Decoupage Lace Pumpkin


Lace Pumpkin Tutorial - love everything from the color to the type of lace!  #12monthsofmartha #marthastewartcrafts


It sounds so sophisticated …

like I should be wearing a Chanel jacket while sipping a glass of champagne on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées and watching the beautiful people stroll by with their poodles and baguettes.


In reality, I’m in flip flops and jeans drinking a margarita.

But I can decoupage!


Remember my ugly plastic pumpkins that I turned into the world’s cutest planters?  Well, now they have company.

Decoupage Lace Pumpkin Tutorial


– Funkin – or use a real one!
– Martha Stewart Crafts Decoupage White Floral Lace Trim
– Martha Stewart Crafts craft paint (I used Pool)
– Martha Stewart Crafts matte decoupage medium
– Paint brush

1) Paint funkin in your favorite craft paint color (I used Martha Stewart in Pool – 3 coats)

2) Snip pieces from the floral lace trim

3) Add a thin layer of decoupage medium to the lace pieces and apply to the funkin

4) Let dry then apply a thin layer of the matte decoupage medium to the entire funkin

 Lace Pumpkin - love everything about this fun fall craft!

I’m suddenly craving a baguette – see what decoupaging can do to a girl.

  1. Okay … so, if I throw my flops on and pour a margarita, will I be able to whip up a fancy funkin like you did?! Love the color you chose! Martha will love it and have it pinned to her page in no time!

  2. Such a cute idea! Now that’s what I call a “beautiful” pumpkin, and that isn’t a word I usually use to describe them. Usually, it’s spooky, or scary! Thanks for the new idea!

  3. Now that is one classy…..pumpkin! Although, I’m not quite ready for pumpkins and fall decor (Fall officially begins September 22) I’m hanging on to every last bit of summer. You’ve inspired me with some ideas for fall decor to go with my new coastal cottage colors. You come up with the coolest and creative ideas!

  4. Noooooo! Don’t want any pumpkins yet, but I must admit they are pretty darn cute Kelly! Makes me NOT think of fall but Spring! So maybe a YES then for those pumpkins. 😉

  5. hi Kelly … that is so cute. Guess it is time to start thinking about Fall decorating. I am ready. Summer has not been a lot of fun. Too hot and dry.
    Thanks for the inspiration.

  6. I am so delighted with your blog! I’ve been following you–in a completely non-creapy way–for months and just have to tell you that I identify with your stylings and philosophy like we were twins separated at birth! Sympatico, sister!

  7. Love that pumpkin, love the color and lace decoupaged on it. I’ve never bought one of the funkin punkins but just might to be able to do what you’ve done. How darned cute can it be? Love that color also. I’ve been so into aquas/corals this summer it will be hard to change to Fall colors even tho I love them best.
    I’ll have to see if any of pumpkins I have can be decoupaged that way so I don’t have to buy another pumpkin. Seems kinda wasteful to spend money on another one when I have several already.
    Love yours and you’ve totally inspired me to decoupage one of my existing ones. Glad you shared this great post.
    I’ll have to look into the posts you mentioned about Martha. Sounds intriguing. Happy days

  8. Oh Kelly, Got to try this one for sure. Mine will probably be just a bit different- as I am bare foot with a Jack and Coke slushy. Oh But that color grabs me, like you made it just for me. Wonder what I will crave next, Oh on that could be scary…(get it) lol

  9. Wow!!! I love the pumpkin ! What a great way to transition from summer to fall. I was going to do my patio up in fiesta style this weekend but now I think I will be spray painting several aqua and teal pumpkins and hanging aqua shears on the pergola instead. As luck would have it I found a set of teal candle holders today that will go perfectly. You made my day. I am new to blogging and don’t know the ins and outs but I would love to list this blog as my inspiration for my patio decor for the early fall season.

  10. Love, love, love this blue pumpkin so much that I am sharing it on I’ve Got The Monday Blues, today 🙂 Thanks for sharing Kelly!
    Make it a blue Monday.
