Mod Podge ® Brush Set, Decoupage
Item #24781
Whether you’re embellishing a gift box or smoothing your work across a canvas, this 3 piece brush set can help you achieve impeccable results. The set includes three brush sizes: ½”, ¾”, and 1 1/8” – perfect for anything from fine detail work to larger art pieces. The short Gold Taklon bristles are ideal for ornate surfaces, and make pressing paper or fabric into creases and tight corners a breeze. These brushes are excellent for projects that require fewer visible brush strokes - optimal for high gloss and flat matte finishes. The brushes clean up readily with soap and water. For best results, be sure to reshape the brushes after washing and before standing brush-side up to dry.

Other Supplies
Foam Pumpkin
Thanksgiving paper napkins


  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.
