Supplies: FloraCraft® Make It Fun® Foam Discs, FloraCraft® Smooth Finish, a wooden sign (I painted mine white), wooden letters, acrylic paint (brown, yellow and orange), a small spatula, something to stir the Smooth Finish, green curling ribbon and a cinnamon stick cut in thirds (each piece approximately 2 inches long). You’ll also need three paintbrushes, a spouncer and a glue gun.

This is pretty COOL… you are going to transform a foam disc into a pumpkin, with texture!

Step 1: Stir the Smooth Finish until it’s well mixed. I used a wooden spoon.

This is what mine looked like. It’s pretty fun! Let it dry overnight.

Step 3: Do a base coat of brown paint on the disc (this will give your pumpkin some depth). While you’ve got the brown paint out, paint your background brown too.
