I am a 32-year-old transplant from Seattle living in Atlanta, Georgia. I was born from creative genes, so I'm carrying on the tradition. I have been knitting for 17 years, sewing for longer and decoupaging for just a few. I do all of these things on a daily basis, or at least as much as I can. Follow my crafting adventures on the ModPodgeRocks blog.
Dole out your sweet treats at this year's Halloween party in these adorable little containers.

Instructions

  1. Paint your pumpkin treat containers with White. Give several coats and let dry.
  2. Cut the tissue paper up into lots of small squares – both the orange and the green.
  3. Begin to cover each pumpkin with tissue paper. Paint a medium layer of the Mod Podge Washout on the pumpkin, add tissue paper and then Mod Podge over the top. Keep adding tissue paper until the entire pumpkin is covered (using green for the stem). Let dry.
  4. Paint the details on the pumpkin face with either Pumpkin or Black paint. Let dry.
  5. Optional step: add Mod Podge Sparkle over the top for some Halloween bling!
  6. Let pumpkins dry completely before using. These are perfect for Halloween candy or as party favors!
