DIY Halloween Ribbon Pumpkin

DIY Halloween Ribbon Pumpkin, a fun project in the spirit of Halloween, change the appearance of your craft store ordinary pumpkin and make it stand out with different Halloween ribbons!
Hola Amigos! A pretty craft here to give your Halloween pumpkins a different look with more texture and character than just plain orange or white gourd you find at your craft store.
It's really put together in no time once you get the hold of it. I was watching a night show when I made mine, One thing though, Tulula, my ribb-pumpkin was made in the "before blogging" times, so the pictures I took were for personal reference and not for posting, so my apologies for the quality.

This is what I used: Halloween themed ribbons, depending on the size of your pumpkin you might need 4-5 rolls of ribbon. I used about 4 plus a few more I had around, I wanted Tulula to be colorful, 1 fake pumpkin from your craft store and glue gun sticks, lots of them.
This is how I did it: First, cut your ribbon in 1.5 2 inches in length. Glue the end edges very carefully because with your sheer ribbon the hot glue goes right through it. Make a loop.
Starting on the very top of your pumpkin, hot glue the ends of your loop around the stem, interchanging different colors of ribbon, textures and even widths to give your pumpkin more visual interest. Keep doing this until your entire pumpkin is covered in ribbon.
Finally decorate your pumpkin stem is you choose too with a little bling from the floral section of your craft store very popular this time of the year.

Isn't she cute! I will make her more sisters and display them all together, perhaps since she is so colorful the others could be in plain matching colors! Possibilities are endless!

How do you decorate for Halloween? Do you like sweet and cute? traditional colors like orange and black? Do you got for the creepy and spooky? Do you pick a them to decorate around every year? Let me know in your comments please, I'm "dying" to know, lol...I just had to say that!

Thank You so much for your visit today! Hope you are looking forward to this first Back to School weekend I am for sure. I miss my little man so much! He on the other hand is having a blast...go figure!
DIY Halloween Ribbon Pumpkin, step out of the ordinary orange, black or white pumpkin and have fun with all those ribbons you find in craft store during the holidays! Colorful and fun, Easy to make and above all very festive!

Besitos,
Lizy
