Fast and Classy Halloween Pumpkins!

Do you love Halloween but not really crazy about the gaudy decorations? Here is an elegant way to celebrate your Halloween without breaking the bank!

You will need:

  • White/Orange Pumpkin(Plastic will last longer but you can use a real one )
  • Colored panty hose with print
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Twist tie
  • Rubber band

Step 1-Cut the leg off of the torso of the panty hose.  I would suggest, depending on the size of your pumpkin, that you cut as high as you can.  This will allow you the most usable material, so that you can make as many pumpkins as you want.

Step 2-Stick your pumpkin in the panty hose leg.  You have a lot of freedom with this:  depending on the size of the pumpkin, you can choose where to place it!  I would suggest putting your biggest pumpkin in the thigh area, which has more threads and elasticity, than trying to squeeze it in the foot area of the hose.

Step 3-Rubber-band the top, tightly.  This part can be a little tricky:  you want to rubber-band it tightly enough that the hose do not slip out, but not so tight that the tension causes it to slip upwards off of the pumpkin stem.

Step 4- Twist and knot the bottom.  Simply twist the hose at the base of the pumpkin, and either pull it through on itself and knot it (which I didn’t do because I didn’t want my pumpkin sitting lopsided, but, if you have room in the base, that would be easiest), or tie a twist tie around it.

Step 5- Trim the remaining panty-hose.  Simply cut off the loose end, as close as you can while leaving enough that it won’t slip off. Tie your ribbon, and voila!
