Get Crafty with your Pumpkin this Halloween

Posted on

Is it just us or has Halloween got spookily stylish this year? 

No longer do you need to mop up a mess of orange guts after making your best carving knife blunt all for a wonky smile or a tree silhouette that doesn't look quite like the one you were copying from Pinterest.

This year you can make pumpkin decorating easier by painting, wrapping, bejewelling and even pinning a pumpkin or gourd into crafty perfection.

Take a look at our top picks and have a go yourself!

1. Wrap it up

Spray paint the stem of the pumpkin then simply glue wrapping paper around it in strips. Good practice for Christmas wrapping also - sneaky.

2. Paint and Pin

Paint the pumpkin then use drawing pins to create a pattern or word. We love this green and gold combination.

3. Use Glitter Nail Polish 

A Week from Thursday - Glitter Nail Polish Pumpkins

Buy a cheap bottle of glitter nail polish and simply paint the top of the pumpkin for dazzling effect. Opt for gourd to decorate as they are a bit smaller and you can paint the whole thing then use another colour to streak across the top.

4. Dripping Crayons 

The Swell Designer - Crayon Dripping Pumpkin

Paint a pumpkin with your base colour then pop wax crayons on the top and use a hairdryer to melt them down the sides to create this artistic look.

5. Get Floral 

Chatelaine Pumpkin Vase

Ok so we know we said no clearing up pumpkin insides, but making a pumpkin into a vase is just too gorgeous to ignore. Depending on the flowers you choose you might not even need to paint the pumpkin - just make sure you pop a little vase inside to hold the flowers and water.
