  1. Hi! Love your style! A year or so ago you featured a plaid throw for your porch and I lost the link to it. Do you know if it is still available? I regretted not buying it!
    Thanks in advance.

  2. Oh my gosh these are gorgeous and so simple! I love blue and white, but also love the idea you could use any color or pattern of napkin. Now I want to make some! Thank you, what a fun project this is going to be. I love the idea of giving them as gifts.

  10. Thank you for this tutorial and idea, such a gift! After checking two of our local stores for the napkins and came up empty handed, I clicked on the napkin link and would have paid the high price they are asking but the delivery time is one to two months! I know I can use any napkin, but these are really beautiful! Will keep looking……

  11. I love this idea! I just spent 30 minutes browsing beautiful paper napkins on Amazon. I found a floral design that has the phrase Friends Gather Here in small enough writing that it should work on a slightly larger pumpkin.

  12. I love this idea! Since I would rather have a different color, I just spent 30 minutes browsing beautiful paper napkins on the internet. Can’t wait to try this.

  13. I’m usually not a fan of blue but these are stunning along with the autumn colors you have chosen. It goes so well together. I ordered some of the napkins on Etsy. Can’t wait to make these. I have been decoupaging pumpkins for many years but never did them the way you demonstrate. I’ll have to try your way for this pattern. I have a friend who loves blue and I’ll make her a couple of pumpkins for Thanksgiving. She’ll love them!

  21. Yvonne, I love your DIY projects (and everything else on your blog)! But these pumpkins and the velvet ones are so adorable! Thank you 🙂

  22. I just stumbled across your blog and these DIY pumpkins. Thank you for the detailed instructions. I am hopeless when it comes to craft projects but I want these so badly that I am going to give it a try. I clicked on the Amazon link to the napkins and all 3 items are shown under Frequently bought together. You must have inspired quite a few people to make these! Fingers crossed that these end up displayed in my home and not in the trash.

  23. So, the pumpkins are sold out. Ugh. So for this year was wondering if real white pumpkins would work

  24. Good Morning!

    I learn so much from you regarding decor and enjoying
    life itself. Thank you for being there.
    Recently you had a free Pumpkin print out on one of your posts. Is it still available?I would love to frame it

  25. I’m a new subscriber and enjoy all of your posts, especially this one. Just ordered all 3 items to make these pumpkins ; can’t wait!! We visit Lancaster county from northern Virginia occasionally and hope to run into you one day!!!

  26. These are not easy peasy and I am an experienced crafter. I’ve spent so much on supplies and very disappointed with the final product.

  27. I love these pumpkins. I could not find the napkins, so I used a blue & white fabric to decoupage on the pumpkins & it worked great. I just can’t decide if I should spray the finished pumpkin with gloss sealer.
