  1. Open the napkins and cut into fourths or cut a motif from the napkin. Separate the plys of the napkins so that you are left with just one decorative layer.
  2. Begin in the center of the pumpkin. Apply Mod Podge to the pumpkin. Work in small sections. Apply enough to have about a half-inch border around your napkin size. Apply an even coat. Not too thick or thin.
  3. Position the napkin onto the wet Mod Podge. Use the brush to gently press the napkins into the ridges of the pumpkin. Don’t top-coat at this point.
  4. Continue adding napkins until the entire pumpkin is covered. Depending on the napkin pattern you might want to overlap them a little bit or just place them right next to each other. For the area around the stem, trim smaller pieces of the napkin and attach in an over lapping pattern.
  5. Allow the napkins to dry for 1 hour. Then top-coat with Mod Podge Satin in an even up-and-down pattern.
  • PROJECT TIP: Separate the napkins so you are only working the 1-ply printed section. Napkins tear easily so don’t over work the napkin.
