Duck Tape crafts: make a Halloween pumpkin

Make a fun spider pumpkin using duck tapeI’m a huge, huge fan of Duck Tape. What can I say? I think you can tell by this blog that I’m partial to craft supplies that are easy to use! I was tickled purple when I found out that was Halloween printed Duck Tape. I may have even squealed out loud. And I knew that I needed to make something for Halloween, and that a decorative pumpkin was in order. I think this may be one of the easiest Halloween crafts I’ve ever made – it literally took about five minutes. Here’s how I did it.

Gather These Supplies

  • Faux pumpkin (you could use a real one too!)
  • Duck Tape in the Halloween pattern of your choice
  • Scissors
  • Googly eyes
  • Craft glue

IMG_2663Starting at the top of your pumpkin, roll the tape down the front and to the bottom, smoothing as you go. Keep layering your tape as you go.

IMG_2665Keep working your way around the pumpkin, and patch in areas as necessary. I had to patch a few areas since the surface was so round (but you won’t be able to tell at all).

IMG_2666Once you are done taping all the way around, glue the googly eyes on with craft glue. Trim the tape at the top toward the stem if necessary.
