Duct Tape Pumpkin

I’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, and both children and adults can do it. The wiggly eyes make it one of my favorite Halloween crafts for kids. Learn how to decorate a pumpkin with Duck Tape below.

Duck Tape Pumpkin

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
Roll of Halloween duct tape

Here’s my Halloween Duck Tape – it’s got spideys with big eyes. Cute, huh?

Layering duct tape

Starting 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.

Applying duct tape to the surface of the pumpkin

Keep 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).

Applying googly eyes to the pumpkin with craft glue

Once 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.
