Introduction: Tricked Out Pumpkins

Picture of Tricked Out Pumpkins

Pumpkins signal the start of Fall, and are so cute decorating the house. But sometimes we want more than just the plain orange or white...so I tricked mine out!

I used a mix of real and fake pumpkins, sharpie marker, sisal rope (available at the hardware store) and ric rac ribbon (from the craft store). You'll also need a glue gun or your adhesive of choice.

Step 1:

Using your sharpie marker, draw spider webs directly on the pumpkin. You can glue cheap spider rings for more fun.

Step 2:

Sisal rope and jute ribbon are two of my favorite crafty items...they are inexpensive and always add great natural texture. You can glue strips of jute in a stripe pattern around the pumpkin. or wrap one completely with sisal rope.

Step 3:

Another cute accent is black ric rac ribbon. Again, you can glue stripes directly to the pumpkin, or leave the ends loose on a baby pumpkin to give it a spider effect.

The options are endless, but I made myself stop with these! You can check out these and other projects on my blog, Hi Sugarplum!

These are great! I particularly like the white pumpkin with the black ric rac! You just don't see ric rac used in crafts enough anymore :)

I agree! Ric Rac makes everything cuter! And pom-poms ;)
