I love using Tissue Paper in my faux finishing business to add texture to walls and furniture so why not use it on a pumpkin? I have incorporated several of my wall tricks from my Rekindled Spaces Business into my pumpkins. This pumpkin craft can be upscale decor or kid friendly fun!

Pumpkin Craft Instructions:

Step 1) Using a foam brush start applying Mod Podge to your pumpkin. For my pumpkin I used a small foam pumpkin.

Step 2) While the Mod Podge is wet, start placing tissue paper sections on the pumpkin. The tissue should crinkle up, that is what gives the pumpkin texture.

Step 3) Repeat this process until the entire pumpkin is covered in tissue paper.

Step 4) To seal tissue, brush one more coat of  Mod Podge over all of the tissue making sure all edges are laying down. Let dry

Step 5) Paint pumpkin with your paint color. You can use acrylic paint, left over latex paint, just about any paint will work. I love metallic so I am painting my pumpkin with Modern Masters Metallic Paint in Statuary Bronze

Step 6) Paint the entire pumpkin including the stem. I painted my stem the same color but you can paint it a different color if going for a realistic pumpkin stem look. Paint your stem last so you have something to hold onto while painting pumpkin.

I left more aging glaze in the creases and along the stem for a “sooty” look. I am not even sure if “sooty” is a word (LOL) but I use it a lot to describe something as old and dirty.
