Ugly foam pumpkins from the Dollar Tree become beautiful Halloween Washi Tape Pumpkins with a little bit of chalk paint and washi tape. This tutorial literally has 2 steps with the hardest part being letting the paint dry!
I told you I was on a mission to decorate for Halloween this year.
I promised you there would be more tutorials for inexpensive decor coming your way.
I warned you.
This tutorial is so easy I almost didn’t even include numbers in the steps. It’s literally as simple as painting some foam pumpkins and laying on washi Tape. By the way, have I ever told you about my addiction to washi tape? Oh yea, I did. Several times in fact.
I have been collecting Halloween inspired washi tape for the past year, and now I finally have something to show for my hoards. AND I didn’t even use all of the patterns I have in my stash.
Halloween Washi Tape Pumpkins
What You’ll Need:
- Foam pumpkins
- Chalk paint (in color of choice)
- paint brush
- Washi Tape (in halloween colors)
- Start by painting the foam pumpkins. I chose Sheepskin from FolkArt
- Once dry, apply washi tape in desired pattern and colors.
- That’s it!
Note: If you wanted the pumpkins to be permanent Halloween washi tape pumpkins you could paint on a layer of Mod Podge. I didn’t.
I have HUGE commitment issues when it comes to my decor. Seasonal or not. I’ll most likely change my mind about these Halloween washi tape pumpkins next year.
