It’s Teach Me Tuesday and we are continuing our Halloween/Fall theme with DIY Glass pumpkins which you can make 2 for under $8! These pumpkins are cute for your porch, table or another place in your house. If you opt to get plastic bowls or can trust your child with Glass (even with the 10-year-old I am weary) you can have he kids participate in making these pumpkins!
Originally, I was going to do one pumpkin and one leaf bowl but our leaves went from green to a yucky brown so it was not even worth the attempt. Some of supplies came from the Dollar store which were the 2 glass bowls and the package of 2 battery-powered tea lights. The Modge Podge, foam brush and tissue paper came from Michaels. The price breakdown: bowls $2, lights $1, Modge Podge $2.50 (40% off coupon used), brush $.50 and tissue paper pack $1= 7! Plus, I have enough to supplies to pick up a couple of more bowls and make more for the Thanksgiving Decor or if I get other tissue paper, they would make a cute gift!
Cut the tissue paper into small squares, rectangles or any other shape you desire
When applying the Modge Podge to the tissue paper on the glass, I always dab the Modge Podge on first to create a sticky surface.
Then, I sponge the Modge Podge over the piece of tissue paper to help the paper soak it up.
Next, I swipe the Modge Podge over the paper to ensure it’s stuck on the glass. For the Jack-O-Lantern, I added the black triangles after the layer of orange was placed down on the glass. Note: A little Modge Podge goes a long way!
After allowing them to dry for a few hours, I placed the tea lights in the bowls and enjoyed them.
