I wouldn’t classify myself as a “hoarder” per se, but I do have a weak spot for a few things.  Tissue paper is one of them.  After a birthday party or other celebration, you will find me lovingly rescuing tissue paper from gift bags (which also get reused), smoothing out the wrinkles, and folding it to go into a special drawer.  Yes, I have an entire drawer devoted to recycled tissue paper.  When I come across craft ideas like this Halloween jack-o-lantern, it makes me so happy to know that I can simply use what I have on hand.

Start by ripping your tissue paper into small, irregular pieces, no bigger than about 2" x 2". As you can see, even the baby is "helping" with this one!

Since our balloon was a pretty dark color, we did about three layers of tissue paper to make our jack-o-lantern nice and orange.
