Decorating Pumpkins with Washi Tape, Glitter, and Twine

On my recent trip to the pumpkin patch I picked up a bunch of little cute tiny round pumpkins. This week I had fun decorating them. Here's how they turned out.

For this project I knew I wanted mini pumpkins, but instead of the normal mini pumpkins, I thought these rounded mini pumpkins would be easier to decorate.

I gathered up my art supplies, Tacky Glue, fine glitter in harvest colors, some orange twine, and my newest crafting supply- washi tape, which I have been wanting to try out for some time now. I found Halloween print washi tape at the craft store earlier this fall and thought I'd pick some up to try out.

I had fun with this project and ended up with a bowl full of decorated pumpkins. I glittered polka dots on one using gel glitter glue, I wrapped twine around a couple using tacky glue, some I just wrapped a band of washi tape around the middle, I really loved the chevron patterned tape.

Washi tape was fun and easy to use, I am glad I picked some up, I have found a few more to use with paper crafting and I'm already thinking of Christmas projects to make with Washi tape- it comes in so many fun patterns!

I really love the way these pumpkins look on my table, definitely a fun and easy craft.

Have a wonderful fall week!
