Decoupage Halloween Treat Bowl

Smoothfoam Halloween Treat Bowl with Watermark

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.

Smoothfoam Halloween Treat Bowl Products with Watermark

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

Smoothfoam Halloween Treat Bowl Bottom

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.
