Are you looking for a fun way to decorate pumpkins that does not involve carving? Last week I shared a post featuring our drip painted pumpkins. And this week I’m sharing another kid-friendly and creative way to decorate pumpkins – tissue paper pumpkins!
For this activity, I gathered the following materials:
- A pumpkin for each kid
- A large paint brush
- Some watered down glue (I added a bit of water to the glue to make it runny)
- Tissue paper squares
The second way way to place the tissue paper squares onto the pumpkin and then apply some glue on top using the brush.
Both ways worked well, and the kids had a great time decorating their pumpkins.
Here is XGirl’s finished pumpkin.
And here is my finished pumpkin.
Beautiful, fun, and way longer lasting than a carved pumpkin. 🙂
