papier-mache pumpkins


i saw this idea from martha stewart's magazine years ago and finally got around to making it.

supplies
orange balloons
yellow and orange tissue paper
mod podge


i cut the tissue paper into strips.

then i brushed glue onto the balloon and add layers of tissue paper.

i used a clothes pin and hung the balloon up to dry. i let is dry for 24 hours before cutting out the face and an opening at the top and bottom.

  1. Very cute-I wonder if this would work with normal white glue?

  2. So cute! Does the balloon stay in tact or does it pop?
