I love pumpkins. I love Duck Tape. I really, really love houndstooth… so it’s only natural that I would make a Houndstooth Duck Tape Pumpkin.
This is so, so, SO easy to do.
Grab yourself some fabulous Duck Tape and a Dollar Store pumpkin. Split the tape down the middle so that you have thinner strips of tape. Even though there will still be a little bubble or two, they will lay flatter this way. Start covering the pumpkin from top to bottom, trying to match up the pattern as you go. It doesn’t have to be perfect… you’ll get the houndstooth effect no matter what.
I used a bit of double sided tape to cover the stem and covered the top with a few strips of ribbon. Then just took some grosgrain ribbon and wrapped it around the sides.
Easy, peasy. Note: I may be crafting up some Halloween goodies right now, but they will not be going up in my home until October 1st. I try not to rush the seasons, even if I’m super excited for them!
