I have seen many projects similar to the one's I made here,
but I am thinking these may be rather unique...
- tissue wrapping paper
- assorted ribbons
- Mod Podge
- sponge paint brush
- white primer spray paint
- Sharpie markers
Next, I measured from the base of the stem down to the bottom middle of the pumpkin (in this case the measurement was about 8 inches).
Starting at the top of the pumpkin, I painted a 3" line of Mod Podge down the pumpkin to the center of the bottom, and taking the a piece of the tissue paper, I placed the short, flat shaped end up against the base of stem and smoothed the paper down over the pumpkin until it adhered well. I used additional Mod Podge to make sure that all the edges stuck down tight. I carefully pressed the surfaces to make sure it was well stuck down and and the small wrinkles were smoothed out. I repeated these steps again, this time using the oval cut end of the paper up next to the stem, and overlapping the 2nd piece of tissue slightly over the 1st piece of tissue. Continue on around the pumpkin, staggering the flat end with the oval shaped end around the stem, until the pumpkin is completely covered with the tissue strips. Then working carefully completely coat the outside of the pumpkin/tissue with more Mod Podge until ALL of the tissue paper has received a layer. Don't over coat with the glue however, because the thicker the coat, the more the pattern in the paper will become foggy in appearance. Let this all dry-usually 3-4 hours in an airy place.
I think this pumpkin is my personal favorite.
~You use the exact same steps with the sack paper as you do the tissue paper~
What do you think? I'm lovin em!
