Houndstooth Duct Tape Pumpkin

I bought a couple of rolls of patterned duct tape a while back and didn't really know what I was going to do with them but I liked the patterns and they were on sale. When I saw The V Spot's Houndstooth Pumpkin, I knew exactly why I bought that houndstooth duct tape (well besides the fact that I like houndstooth).

Here's my Houndstooth Duct Tape Pumpkin:

 
This is one of those REALLY EASY crafts. The kind you can do while watching TV. All you need is a craft pumpkin and duct tape. This pumpkin came from the Dollar Tree.
 
 
You'll also need some black acrylic paint or something to cover the stem. This was an after thought, so the paint didn't make it in the picture. I just started covering the pumpkin in duct tape. I didn't split my tape strips in half. I just taped off four sections with tape and then filled in the middle of those strips. When I finished, the hubby says" you can see the orange through it". Well, we can't have that can we? So I did a second layer of tape on mine. Last, I painted the stem black.

 
I love how it turned out. It will fit nicely with my black and white Halloween theme this year. BTW, is everyone doing black and white Halloween? That's all I'm seeing in blog land. I'll be throwing a few pops of color into my decor.


Be sure to follow me if you don't and check back next week to see a round up of duct tape crafts I've put together and another duct tape project I've completed.
