I picked my pumpkin because I liked all of its freckles!
The pumpkin was a little dirty and there was a ton of dried mud stuck to the backside. So the first step was giving it a bath. (I thought this picture was hilarious but my kids just rolled their eyes at me. Come on, I’m funny! I wrapped the pumpkin in a towel like a baby!)
How to Make a No-Carve Duck Tape® Witch Pumpkin
When my baby pumpkin was all clean I started with the eyes. Very simple. Cut a piece of black Duck Tape®, cut an oval shape and a smaller circle, and cut a circle out of the white Duck Tape® to make the eyes.
The mouth was a little tricky because the tape kept wanting to stick to itself, so I cut a strip and lightly applied it to some transfer paper, like what you would use for vinyl. I cut it out, removed the transfer paper backing and put the mouth in place.
Now that my pumpkin has a face it is time to start working on the green witch hair.
I cut one strip of the green Duck Tape® and cut another piece that is just a little bit shorter. I put the two sticky sides together. Making sure to leave one side with the sticky still exposed.
Cut the strip into smaller strips and use the exposed sticky end to stick the “hair” to the pumpkin. I did about five rows on each side and scrunched up each strand to give a crazy hair look.
The witch hat is also made out of Duck Tape®. I made 2 sheets using the same technique as for the hair but kept adding strips until it made sheets with no sticky exposed.
I rounded an end of one of the sheets and rolled it into a cone.
For the brim of the witch hat, I took the second sheet and cut it into a large circle. I taped the cone to the circle by using small strips of Duck Tape® and taping the cone to the rim from the inside of the cone.
When the whole ensemble is put together, my witch pumpkin is so cute!! I think she turned out even cuter then I thought that she would.
