It’s October 2. It’s the weekend. Let’s pimp a pumpkin.
We’re not going to pretend this is going to win us any pumpkin carving competitions – particularly as it doesn’t require any ruddy carving – but we will not deny that it’s a pretty cute, and dare we say it, stylish, way of inviting Halloween into your home.
Plus, it’s so easy we can’t believe we’re writing a 3-step how-to.
Nevertheless, there’s a 3-step how-to after the pics.
3 simple steps to a stylish pumpkin
What you will need: a selection of gourds from your local greengrocer – it’s nice to mix it up on the size and colour front; a Sharpie
1. Draw a circle for an eye 3/4 of the way up one pumpkin rib
2. Draw a nonchalant v-shape for a smile half-way up the next rib
3. Draw another circle for an eye – just a smidgeon less than 3/4 of the way up – on the next rib for a lovably wonky look
Now find a home for your pumpkin friends somewhere nice in your home. As you can see from the picture below, we created a whole pumpkin family. We kept it chilled, however, by only adding faces to three of the five pumpkins. Because we’re cool like that.
Gourd-jus, eh? (Never gets old, that one.)
Will you be decorating your home for Halloween? We’d love to hear your ideas if so.
