These fishbowl pumpkins are a fun and inexpensive way to add
some Halloween atmosphere to your home! Working around
the face is a little tedious so I would leave that for the adult to
do but kids can get in on the rest of the action. They look best
with a variety of sizes and different expressions!
any sized fishbowl - I got mine at the thrift store for $1
orange and yellow tissue paper
dish of water
Tear the yellow tissue into a variety of sizes
I thinned down the Mod Podge with a little bit of water in a dish.
Paint a smallish area of the bowl with Mod Podge and lay on
the tissue then cover with more Mod Podge.
Repeat until you have covered the whole bowl in about two
layers of yellow. I didn't do the bottom and don't worry if you
go over the top edge, you can trim that later.
After the yellow layer has dried (maybe about 20 minutes) take
a pencil and very lightly draw on the Jack-O-Lantern's face.
Tear the orange tissue into different sizes but also cut with
scissors some small straight edge pieces to work around your design.
Cover the whole bowl with two layers of orange tissue.
After it has dried, trim the top edge with scissors.
Put in a candle and admire your work! As always,
never leave a lit candle unattended!
