I made this decoupage Halloween Treat Bowl with the help of my 4-year-old grandson, Nick. (It may or may not have gone a little quicker without his help.) Since Halloween is for the kids anyway, it didn’t matter if the paper was perfectly smooth.
Confession: I’m a little bit of a craft hoarder. (neatly contained though) I have been hanging onto this Martha Stewart Halloween tissue paper for a few years. I guess I’ve been waiting for just the perfect project like this one.
To make the project you’re going to need a few simple ingredients:
- 12″ Smoothfoam half-ball
- Mod Podge Gloss Lustre
- Halloween-themed tissue paper
- Foam Brush or Small Paintbrush
- Eager 4-year-old (optional)
Cut the tissue paper into small squares. I started with 3″ squares and added some random sizes. Decoupage the tissue paper onto the half ball with Mod Podge
Tip: For my bowl, I started on the bottom and worked my way up. At the time, I thought it was a good idea. By the time I got to the top of the bowl I was getting a little more random in how I placed my tissue paper. Next time I think I’ll start at the top of the bowl and work my way down. I really like the way the bottom turned out.
Fill with treats and enjoy. (don’t forget to buy an extra bag or two for yourself)
