Using black paint and a round paintbrush paint a spooky tree on the surface of the pumpkin. Use the image as a guide.
Paint over the black paint with coffee bean brown. Add small highlights with gunmetal gray. With a dry brush add wispy brushstrokes from the branches and base of the tree. Allow to dry.
Cut small paper leaves from the book pages. Using Mod Podge as a glue, attach the leaves to the branches of the trees. Top-coat with a layer of Mod Podge.
Cut pumpkins from scrapbook paper, apply a coat of Mod Podge to the back of the pumpkins, position onto the pumpkin at the base of the tree, press with your fingers and top-coat with a layer of Mod Podge.
Add glitter highlights with Extreme glitter to the pumpkins and base of the tree.
Paint the stem of the pumpkin black.
