Decoupage Pumpkins

This simple craft makes a great activity for a group: even the littlest

hands can help tear the tissue paper into small pieces. Use an

artificial pumpkin, and you'll have a lasting family memento.

Gather tissue paper, several paintbrushes, and a container of Mod Podge

or watered-down white glue. Working on a protected surface, simply

tear the tissue into squares and paste them in place. We found that

double layers of tissue produced the boldest colors, and a topcoat of

Mod Podge gave the finish durability.
