Halloween Craft for Dummies


It's no secret that I am not crafty, but I do know how to put tape on things, which is the extent of this Halloween decoration. All you need is a pumpkin and washi tape, which you can find here or here, among other places. Make your pattern as simple or elaborate as you like and feel free to mix different tapes. I kept it simple and ended up with what I'm calling my little Tim Burton pumpkin.

  6. Had you not told me, I would never have known that was tape. At first glance it looks as if it were expertly painted on the pumpkin. It's so cute - i love it!

    I'm fairly new to the washi tape trend, but I'm pretty obsessed. Such a great idea!

  10. That's fantastic! I have to say, I much prefer what you have going on to most halloween decor. Never been huge on it. I may even pull out my washi tape and grab a pumpkin - you've inspired me!

  11. Some people say duct tape is useful in every situation. I think duct tape should look like THIS tape so I would actually use it in any situation! Beautiful@

  13. I love it! I have two of those small pumpkins and didn't even consider getting crafty with them. I'm a wanna be crafter, but never have any original ideas.
