Oct 12, 2017

If your kids are fans of painting and gluing, this is a simple no-carve idea. It's just like making a collage, but on a cute little pumpkin. Make these with any colours you like!

What You'll Need

• acrylic craft paint
• paint brush
• coloured tissue paper, cut into circles of various sizes
• Mod Podge
• sponge brush

How To

1. Clean off any dirt from your pumpkin with water. Let it dry.

2. Paint the whole pumpkin with a coat of paint. Let dry. Add a second coat of paint. Let that one dry too.

3. Cut the tissue paper into circles of different sizes.

4. Apply a layer of Mod Podge to the pumpkin and stick on the polka dots. Cover the dots with another layer of Mod Podge. Let dry, and then you're done!
