Decorate a colorful pumpkin in 5 minutes!

I had one of those moments today where I just had to get up from my computer screen. My eyes and body was getting so tired and I needed to take a mini break.

So I walked into our design studio and saw a pile of ripped fabric scraps. Each of the ripped scraps were about 2 feet long and were in assorted colors. I picked four colors of fabric and alternated them around a small faux pumpkin. On the top, I tied it into a big tattered bow at the top of the stem. Since I did this in 5 minutes, I didn’t really use any glue to hold it together permanently, but I may go back and add a little Aleene’s Tacky Glue to attach it to the pumpkin.  The bow covers up the stem, but if you were using a real pumpkin, you could just pull the stem off if that bothered you.

I actually think this would look really cute next to a red painted pumpkin and a turquoise painted pumpkins (like these from my friend Jen of Tatertots & Jello). I love the idea of non-traditional Halloween pumpkins, don’t you?

Until next time Swellions!
