The kids will have so much fun with this project! To make, fold a sheet of tissue paper over itself a few times and place a thicker sheet of paper underneath to give the punches something to grip onto. After that, cut a variety of circular shapes from paper. Now, using the paintbrush, apply a layer of Mod Podge to the surface where you intend to begin affixing the tissue circles. A circle is then placed on top, and Mod Podge is painted over it. To complete the look, overlap the circles and repeat Step 3 until you're satisfied with the coverage.

Mini Pumpkins with Ribbons
We love how a few simple black bows can transform a plainly painted pumpkin into a truly one-of-a-kind decoration. To begin, you should either cut equal lengths of ribbon (ours were about 5 inches) and tie them into bows, or you could purchase pre-tied bows. Then, attach the bow to the pumpkin with a dab of hot glue. Let the pumpkin dry, then do it again all over.

Pressed Flowers Pumpkin
This pattern is the most beautiful way to improve your home's interior. You can make your own by painting a patch of Mod Podge on the pumpkin surface that's just big enough to hold your flower or leaf. Carefully position the flower atop the Modge Podge using the tweezers. Next, dampen the brush with Mod Podge and use it to polish the flower's or leaf's petals. Allow it to dry completely before applying another coat. When the flowers and leaves are dry, add another coat of Mod Podge to seal them. Several hours of drying time is required for proper curing.

Toenail Polish with a Pumpkin Marble Design
It's easier than ever to try one of this year's most popular Halloween trends—marbling your pumpkin with nail polish. To get started, fill a plastic container with hot water. Then, choose a shade of nail polish, give it a good shake, and remove the cap. The next step is to slowly pour in the nail polish colors near the surface of the water, and then swirl them with the toothpick to create a marbled effect. Quickly dipping the pumpkin on its side along the water's surface and twisting it as you see the polish adhering will ensure that the pumpkin is polished all the way around. Then, put it somewhere out of the way to let the polish dry completely. Finally, you can wipe away any polish you don't like with a tissue or Q-tip.

Wrapping your pumpkins in lace is a sophisticated way to decorate for Halloween. To make, remove the stockings' waistbands, leaving you with just the legs. Next, lop off the end of each foot. You can cover multiple smaller or medium pumpkins with each leg if you cut it into smaller pieces, as we did. Then, secure the snipped end of the stocking with a rubber band. The material should be stretched around the pumpkin, but the top stem should be exposed (the rubber banded section should be secured to the bottom of the pumpkin using a straight pin). You can make the lace pattern bigger by pulling the fabric tauter. Next, wrap the top of the stocking around the stem using a second rubber band; cut off any excess fabric. Finally, cover the rubber band with a decorative ribbon and secure it around the stem.

Pumpkins Carved With Crayons
Take apart a box of crayons, or use bits from an old set, and you've got the materials for this look. Put crayons near the pumpkin stem one at a time and melt them with a low-heat hair dryer. As they start to melt, you can direct the dripping by shifting the pumpkin. Cover the entire pumpkin in this manner, and then wait for it to dry.

Dry it completely. Pin a shower cap decorated with ribbons or other embellishments over the pumpkin's "head."
