I really had fun with this project…duct tape pumpkins! Can you believe all the wonderful colors and patterns this stuff comes in now? And there are even special ones just for Halloween! A couple of trips to Michaels armed with coupons and I was armed with a selection of styles.

BK As usual, I was assisted by my handsome co-host Baby Kitty who was hoping for a  mouse-themed pumpkin…maybe next year!

Duct Tape Pumpkin TutorialIt was really simple! Here’s what I did:
1. I started with a faux pumpkin from Dollar Tree and painted the stem to match my tape…in my case, black.  Then I covered each side with a section of tape to give a it a straight start.
2. Next, I added a second length in the middle each of the four empty spaces, smoothing it out as I went.
3. I finished it off by adding strips that were cut in half, thus half as wide. You really only need to start a cut and then tear the rest. (Please ignore my co-host's tail in the photo!)
4. Finally, I gave it a good smoothing all over. I should say that there will be wrinkles no matter how hard you try. It just has to be part of the “charm.”

Leopard Pumpkin And here is the final product! I think will enjoy these…really different from my other pumpkins!

Duct Tape Pumpkins with Bat Then I had to play with them a bit using Picmonkey’s Halloween effects!   

Duct Tape Pumpkins And here’s a final look. I think I really like the candy corn pumpkin! It just looks like Halloween! Hmmm…all of a sudden I’m craving a treat!
