Mod Podge Rainbow Dot White Pumpkins

This is my new favorite craft with white pumpkins (use real pumpkin-patch pumpkins or craft pumpkins from Michaels).

Super-creative Halloween DIY Confetti Pumpkins by Cloudy Day Gray have me seeing polka dots in all the pretty colors.

You'll need Mod Podge and tissue paper circle confetti dots (affiliate).

Do you have some extra gift tissue paper and circle hole punchers at home?  You can make-your-own tissue polka dots for this project.  Shown in bright rainbow colors, you could use your own unique color combination like pink and green, orange and black, or team colors like blue and orange!

Once you have your tissue polka dot circles cut and ready to go, paint the entire pumpkin surface with Mod Podge glue.  Then start sticking on your dots.

Once dry, cover with a second layer of Mod Podge that will dry clear and act as a sealer.

Enjoy your polka dot pumpkin and receive rave reviews from all your friends!

Thanks, Cloudy Day Gray for the great polka dot Halloween craft!

Patriotic Polka Dot Party

There are so many great ways to celebrate America, summer and the good 'ole Red, White and Blue.  We like to mix a few polka dot touches into ALL of our parties, especially for holidays like the 4th of July and Memorial Day.  Follow our Pinterest board for even more great ways to bring patriotic polka dots into your summer party decor.
We'll see you there!

One of our very favorite ways to bring polka dots into our party decor is with a handmade polka dot banner.  This can be made with paper or fabric, or painted burlap!  Did you know there are large rolls of burlap for CHEAP in the garden section at Lowe's ($10 for 8 yards)?  This has been a party lifesaver for me many times!  We love how the super-talented girls at Eighteen 25 curated this Patriotic Popcorn Bar with Polka Dot Banner for summer parties.
It is perfection to look at - your guests will love this! 

Here is our favorite patriotic entry - learn how to create an inviting Front Porch with Polka Dot Pillows with Midwest Living and your neighbors will feel so welcomed!

There are even MORE ideas on our Patriotic Polka Dots Pinterest board dedicated to your red-white-and-blue polka dot parties for Memorial Day and July 4th.

If you like to "shop the house" like me, walk into each room and open those closets full of old blankets, pillows, fabrics and candles.  Grab anything red, white or blue and pile it all on the dining room table.  I bet you can create something wonderful for your own polka-dot-themed patriotic party or vignette on a porch or table too!
