Tissue Paper Faux Pumpkins


Pick up some faux pumpkins at the dollar store and let the fun begin.

 Buy some patterned tissue paper and lets get started.  I recommend two layers, only because you could see the orange under neath.  You could add a quick coat of brown spray paint to the pumpkin (or whatever color matches your tissue) to eliminate the second coat.  You can either use mod podge to stick on your layers, or use about 1 tablespoon of elmers glue mixed with 1/2 cup water to create a paste.  Tare up the tissue paper and drag it through the glue and then slapped it on the pumpkin-it's like making a pinata. When you are finished, you can seal it by painting an entire layer of mod podge over the whole thing and maybe some glitter and decorations to make beautiful Thanksgiving centerpieces.
