Doily Pumpkins

 So I am the girl that only likes flowers that match my house. I decorate for Christmas with white and silver and I don't decorate for fall. So I was trying to think of a way to bring some fall into the house with too much orange and I came up with doily covered pumpkins. This project probably took 10 minutes and when you are done just peel off your doilies, wash them and they are good as new. The step by step instructions are below images.

Doily Pumpkins:
Materials Needed: 1 Pumpkin, 4-6 Doilies (Vintage), Liquid Starch (Wal-Mart).
1. Pour starch into a bowl and dip doilies in the liquid starch
2. Place starched doilies on pumpkin and stretch until flat
3. Continue placing doilies until the pumpkin looks they way you want it too
4. Let it dry over night
5. Wipe off excess starch.
6. Enjoy
