Turn 2 Placemats Into a Holiday Purse Inspired by Pillsbury Cookies
There are many tutorials out there on Halloween costumes you can make, but not so many on Halloween accessories.
Here, I’m going to show you a super cute pumpkin purse inspired by Pillsbury cookies.
It’s also made from placemats, so it’s a very unconventional technique. Let’s get started!
Tools and materials:
- E600 glue
1. Glue placemat
Glue E600 about ⅔ of the way around the periphery of a woven placemat.
2. Stick second placemat on
Stick another placemat on top of it.
3. Add clips
Clip the two pieces together so that they can stay in place as they dry.
4. Paint pumpkin
Once the glue has dried, paint a pumpkin with some orange paint.
First, paint the outline and then fill it in.
5. Add detail
Add some green paint around the eyes and at the top.

Here is the finished pumpkin bag made from painted placemats.
This is such a cute accessory for Halloween, and it was really enjoyable to paint. It’s also usable - you can put all manner of things inside and not have to worry about them falling out.
Give this a go for yourself!
