Fall Pumpkin Decorations

I've had an urge to do a little crafting this fall, which is unusual for me. I decided to play with some pumpkins and see what I could come up with. I took a couple of packs of paper doilies from the Dollar Tree:
Then I used Mod Podge and added them all around a pumpkin, then coated them with another coat of Mod Podge.

It is serving as the centerpiece on the kitchen table, accented with a few more leaves from the Dollar Tree.
I also decided to see what would happen if I painted a pumpkin with chalkboard paint, so I spray painted one with paint I had on hand.
I liked the way it turned out, too! Jonathan wanted to write "Boo!" on it, so we did. I can erase it if we want to change it!

What fall crafts have you been doing?
