How to make a tissue paper teal pumpkin
Check out these step by step instructions and then watch it all in action in the video below!
Start by punching holes out of the tissue paper.
This might not be as simple as punching out regular paper…maybe I used too many pieces of tissue paper, but a few times I would have to pull the paper to get the last bit out.
Since we will be layering our circles it doesn’t hurt the end result if a few aren’t perfect.
Once you have a handful of dots it’s time to start applying some Modge Podge to your pumpkin. Lay a dot down and add a bit more Modge Podge to the top.
Space your dots apart first then go in with your next set and layer them. It will give a darker tone the more layers of dots you lay.

I worked from larger dots at the top to smaller ones at the bottom on my large pumpkin.
When you are happy with the look set it to the side to dry!
You can mix up the tissue paper pumpkin and make a pattern around the center, dots from the bottom up, or even cover your whole pumpkin!
