Modge Podged Pumpkin Project

I have decided that instead of cutting my pumpkin I am going to Modge Podge him.  I have got some gorgeous napkins and cannot wait to get started.  I modge podge all the time and nothing is sacred.  I will attempt to modge podge just about anything.  Want to try?  Well it is really easy and can turn a plain jane thing into something special.  I thought I would share some with you before giving you the directions.
Like what you see?  I hope so because here are the instructions and let me tell you it is so easy.  I have done clear plates and platters, frames, a chair, you name it. Instructions
  1. You can modge podge anything....but for this adventure we are using a pumpkin.  You can use a real one or artificial one.  Next you  gather tissue paper, lightweight fabric, napkins, several paintbrushes, and a container of Mod Podge or watered-down white glue. Working on a protected surface, simply tear the tissue into squares or strips and paste them in place. We found that double layers of tissue produced the boldest colors, and a topcoat of Mod Podge gave the finish durability.  Let it dry completely and voila!  I hope you have fun if you try it.  It is a great destresser.
