Craft Project.... Paper Mache Pumpkins


For paper mache:

Flour, Water, Salt, Balloons, Newspaper

For decorating:

Orange Tissue paper, Black Tissue paper, Green pipe cleaners, Glue


To make paper mache add 2cups flour, 2cups water, and 1T salt in large bowl. Stir until mixed and no lumps. Then use strips of news paper to cover a balloon that is blown up. Let dry for 24 hours or until completely dry.

Use orange tissue paper and glue it to hardened paper mache. I popped the balloon after it dried and it let the pumpkin stand up better. Cover the entire pumpkin with the orange tissue paper. Then cut out face parts (eyes, nose, mouth) with the black tissue paper and glue on to the pumpkin. Last step is to poke the green pipe cleaners around the top to make a stem. These came out really cute!!
