Happy September y’all! How crazy is that?! What better way to celebrate the new month than with the first challenge for the Michaels Makers program– diy pumpkins! And what is a celebration without a little confetti? Here’s how:
Time: 30 minutes
Materials: plastic craft pumpkin, confetti, mod podge, sponge brush
I purchased my confetti, but you can easily make your own using tissue paper. My pumpkin is from Michaels.com. If you aren’t into white, they have a variety of other colors and shapes. You can even get a half pumpkin!
So this tutorial is easy peasy. Apply a thin layer of mod podge, working only 4 inches at a time, and then lay down your confetti. Smooth over with another thin layer of mod podge. Keep going until your pumpkin is covered then let dry!
