I love fall! I love fall so much, it gets my crafty juices flowing and I can't help but MAKE ALL THE THINGS. So although I'm neck deep in sewing costumes right now (oof, seriously, why do I let them pick their own costumes?!) I took some time to craft a few pumpkins.
These guys are fake pumpkins, because I really wanted them to last. But you could mod podge real pumpkins too, I've done it before.
Also, these guys are indoor decorations, so I used regular mod podge on them. If you want to make tissue paper pumpkins to go outside, you should use outdoor mod podge.
Tissue paper pumpkins are so easy to make. Really. All you do is decide on a design, cut the tissue paper, put the mod podge on the pumpkin, and place the tissue paper on, pressing down gently and carefully so it doesn't tear.
Hubby made this guy by weaving strips of tissue paper. Very ambitious!
I cut out little triangles and overlapped them randomly to create this look:
Here's a cute and fun little project for your Easter!
I made cones from orange cardstock by rolling is diagonally and trimming the wide end straight. Then I wrapped the cones in orange yarn, making sure not to pull too tightly and collapse the cone. I added some lighter orange yarn over the top, to add some interest. Then I made green pom poms from two different green yarns. I hot glued them into the open end, so they stuck out like carrot greens. Finally I took orange yarn and tied the carrots onto a metal trivet that I had painted white. I tied them all along the trivet, pulling nice and tight in the back on each one to keep it stationary.
I sort of love it.
Mini told me there would be rabbits waiting by our front door now.
