As Halloween is fast-approaching, The Style.Lab Squad thought it would be the perfect time for a DIY! Although DIY costumes are always a blast, we thought that pumpkin decorating would be the best way to get into the spirit of Halloween.
To get inspired, we made a pumpkin inspiration board. This board is a collection of photos that helped us decide how we wanted to decorate our pumpkins — check it out below so you can get inspired, too!
After finding inspiration, we gathered the supplies: pumpkins, spray paint, glitter, unicorn cut outs, emoji stencils, sequins, gems, shimmer sticks, paint and hot glue! Don't forget to grab a parent before starting your pumpkin (especially for the hot glue and spray paint)!
Since we decided to create three different pumpkins, we used three different colors of spray paints: pink, blue, and yellow! You can use whatever colors you think will best create the Halloween pumpkin of your dreams! Once your pumpkin(s) are sprayed, give them enough time to dry — preferably an hour or two.
Now, if you want the same pumpkins as us, you'll first need to print the pieces to the pumpkin decorating puzzle. See the links below to print our unicorn and emoji pieces:
Once printed, you're ready to get started! It's super easy to copy our pumpkins exactly, but don't be afraid of doing your own thing. You can make each pumpkin unique in their own way! On the other hand, our third pumpkin design is a little more difficult, and it's okay if you're not exact! Have fun with it! This is your chance to do anything to your pumpkin — use the paint, glitter, shimmer sticks, and gems to make your pumpkin stand out and shine.
We would LOVE to see all of your pumpkins! Take a picture of the pumpkins you decorated this year and share them on social media! Don't forget to tag us @stylelabgirl!
