Step 9:

Apply a medium coat of Mod Podge to the surface, too little Mod Podge and you will get wrinkles - you can always wipe away excess Mod Podge, place one napkin on top of the Mod Podge: let it dry for 15 minutes, when ready, use a paint brush or sponge to add another coat of Mod Podge on top. Repeat until you cover the pumpkin fully.
