Looking for a fun and unique way to decorate your pumpkins this Halloween? Try using washi tape to accent your design! We have an entire wall of colours, patterns and textures of washi tape (prices ranging from $2.95 to $11.95) that will surely serve as a point of inspiration for your next project.
Make sure your pumpkin is clean and dry before attempting to tape. If you intend on carving your pumpkin as well I would recommend doing this first before taping. I found the metallic sharpies that we sell in store work very well on pumpkins for drawing out your design before carving.
One of the benefits of working with washi is its slight translucency which makes it very interesting to layer patterns and manipulate colours. I had a lot of fun cutting and manipulating washi to create this skull face. For precision cutting I would recommend picking up a pair of detail scissors that we have in store (prices ranging from $5.95 to $10.95).
Using washi tape on your pumpkins is a really great no-cut alternative for young children who are too young to carve. While adults can use washi to create a stylish alternative to the classic Jack o Lantern face. I achieved the above look by simply layering strips of washi which was very easy and created an interesting ombre effect.
Try something new this Halloween and impress all those ghosts and ghouls.
