Grab a faux or real pumpkin, along with some vinyl and my hand-drawn sloth face SVG and you have yourself the cutest sloth pumpkin!
I used a faux white pumpkin for my project which enabled me to actually omit the entire face and fur layer of the design (which was also white) when I applied my vinyl. If you are using an orange pumpkin, you will just want to keep that white layer intact!

– How to Apply Vinyl
You may need to cut slits in your vinyl and slightly overlap depending on the curvature and smoothness of your pumpkin. That’s OK, you will barely notice and that’s the best way to get the vinyl to lay flat!
