Washi Tape Pumpkin

As I eluded to, I'm all about super easy fall decor - and this project fits perfectly!  Check out this Washi Tape Pumpkin:

I was at Michael's Craft Store and saw their Halloween decor section - which included tons of choices of Halloween washi tape - awesome!


 Of course I had to have some - and then I knew it'd be perfect for a simple way to decorate a foam pumpkin:

Because of the curve of the pumpkin, I decided to run the washi tape down the sides of the pumpkin instead of around it.  Just tape pieces all the way around like shown below:

I left spaces in between the tape strips because I was going to fill them in with a different color of washi tape.  But I ended up really liking how the pumpkin was peeking through, so I left it that way.  The choices are endless on pattern and design that you want to focus on.

I also found theses cute die cut 3D spiders and thought they'd be a fun addition:

I love how it turned out!  I also like how it balances out my bling pumpkin - they compliment each other well.  If you want that tutorial, head here: Super Easy Bling Pumpkin

 Have you started busting out your fall decor??  Being this early is a first for me!

Such a cute and kid friendly project! ...gotta love washi tape! lol

This looks like a fun project for me and the girls! I like the 'bling' pumpkin the best! I have not gotten out any fall decor, but I do have a bag of 'fall' items I found for a few dollars at dollar general at the end of the season. I pass that bag in my garage every day and I can't wait to get them out and hang them up! :)

Love this little pumpkin. Funny, I just picked up that washi tape this past weekend :)
