It's a Halloween Pumpkin!
It's October and before you know it, Halloween will be here. Today I have an easy way to take a dollar store pumpkin and turn it into something fabulous for Halloween, and the best part? There's no painting involved! What do you think?
Here's what you need:
Black rose & spider pick
Purple flower pick
Old pumpkin stems - yes I save them!
First, remove the green styrofoam stem from your pumpkin and make the center hole a little larger. I used a pair of scissors.
Next, cut a piece of spider fabric large enough to go around the pumpkin and 'tuck in' at the top. Begin wrapping and tucking your fabric around the pumpkin.
....until the entire pumpkin is wrapped.
Then, choose a stem to hot glue to the top. I also added one of the spiders from the black rose pick.
Add two purple flowers for some color and black twigs from the black rose pick.
Finally, add a black rose because it's Halloween!
A word about the spider fabric. I was lucky enough to find this fabric on sale two years ago. I bought a bunch of it and used it on two other projects. A Wire Pumpkin Wreath and a Witch Hat. Both were a lot of fun to make - I hope you'll check them out.
However, I realize this fabric is not available to everyone, so I have an alternative. Get a pair of spider web tights and wrap your pumpkin with them. You should be able to make a few pumpkins with one pair of tights.
