If you want a pumpkin that will last for months, try using mod podge to preserve and display fresh foliage and flowers. Working especially well with light colored smooth backgrounds, gather some interesting foliage, like ferns, pressed roses, autumn leaves, and hydrangeas. Spray a bit of adhesive to the foliage, adhere the foliage to the pumpkin, and layer over with some mod podge, which is ideal for gluing, sealing, and finishing. I like to add at least 4-5 coats of the mod podge, sealing in the botanicals and these creations will last for a long time.

Yes, you read it right. As the season transitions from summer to fall, pumpkins will slowly be filling your home. From your front steps to your kitchen table, there are plenty of uses for all shapes and sizes of pumpkins. Instead of carving the traditional scary faced pumpkin, transform your pumpkin into a handmade vase. Show off your favorite fall flowers above your fireplace or use a few mini pumpkin flower vases as a centerpiece for your next fall party. Parts of this post Originally posted on Porch.com
