Washi Tape Pumpkin

 Hey everyone!!

Halloween fun is in full swing at our house, and the kids have been begging to get out our decorations!  They were very sad when they realized our decorations consisted of one or two signs and some fabric-covered pumpkins I made last year ;)

Obviously I needed to add to our dwindling decorations, so off to the store we went!

I found these great craft pumpkins at Target for $6!  I thought that was pretty good for a pumpkin that will last for YEARS :)  Plus I loved the white color...I don't do orange at Halloween in my house ;)  



I got my pumpkin home, placed it on my mantle...and realized it desperately needed SOMETHING :)
I am just not in the place of life to be doing ornate, messy crafts right now so I needed something quick and mess-free.  

My choice?  Washi Tape!!



Weeks ago I got a few packs of Washi tape from Pick Your Plum and have just been waiting for the perfect occasion to use them.  I knew this pumpkin makeover was just that!

This was crazy easy.  Starting at the top I would run the strip of tape until I reached the bottom of the pumpkin, then repeat until I had the pumpkin striped just the way I wanted it.


After I finished I thought it still needed a little bit more.  Luckily when you buy Washi Tape from Pick Your Plum it comes with another coordinating roll...I thought the polka dots finished my pumpkin off perfectly!


Turned out pretty cute, right?! ;)

I am THRILLED with our newest addition to our Halloween decor!  Its simple, chic, and I literally threw it together while my kids were eating breakfast this morning :)


Thanks for checking out my most recent crafty attempt!!  I hope you are having a fantastic day wherever you are, stop by later for some fun Witchy activities for your little girls!!
