How to Decorate a Pumpkin with Duck Tape – Leopard Style!


I feel so out of the loop… I have never used decorative Duck Tape. If I remember correctly, the last thing I duct taped was a moving box… years ago. I’ve been “unlocking” little achievements here and there, I thought it was time to finally get with the times and get creative with Duck Tape. I decided to decorate a pumpkin with Duck Tape and I decided to take a different approach instead of a typical Halloween theme. The project was easier than I expected and the outcome was fabulous!

Materials Used

1 Foam Craft Pumpkin
Leopard and Black Duck Tape


Start taping from the stem to bottom of the pumpkin. Be sure to keep tape as smooth as possible to avoid creases and folds. Repeat this process until pumpkin is covered entirely.


Cover the stem of the pumpkin with black tape, wrapping it around for full coverage.


Using the black tape, cut out assorted black triangles and place them around the stem.


And you’re done!


Voila, the finished product! Simple and funky!
