A QUICK & EASY Way to Decorate a Pumpkin

I am obsessed with fall decor and pumpkin decorating and this is one of the quickest ways to get a lot of bang for your buck with a pumpkin!
This pumpkin is "decorated" with duct tape! Duct tape makes everything cuter!
First, you need to find a small pumpkin and your duct tape. Hobby Lobby has a great duct tape selection. One roll will do a couple small pumpkins!
This short video shows you which duct tape patterns will work great for this pumpkin project and which will NOT. You need a random pattern to make it look good!
Start by cutting 4 strips of duct tape to put on your pumpkin like this.
Then fill in your other areas with more strips of duct tape until it is covered. You WILL have some crinkles and folds but if you press them down tight, they will not show up at the end.
Add a burlap bow to the top and that will cover the face that your duct tape doesn't fit perfectly up against the pumpkin stem!

This is a cute hostess gift idea or teacher gift or fall project with the kiddos.
