Halloween is just around the corner… Have you started decorating yet? We’ve had a busy month around here and I’m just starting to get into the swing of Halloween. I’ve got one costume made and I’m in the planning stages of the second. I dragged all of our outdoor decor out last night and am waiting for the kids to get home so they can help decorate.
We always go to the pumpkin patch every year and pick out several pumpkins, though we haven’t carved a pumpkin in ages. The last few years we have been coming up with all sorts of creative ways to decorate the outside of the pumpkins. This year is no different, but the decoration of choice was Duck Tape.
Duck Tape® has so many fun patterns available that the Halloween decorating ideas are endless!
The best part of our pumpkin decorating plan is The Duck Tape® Stick or Treat Contest! It’s a great way to show off your creative talents. All you have to do to enter is submit an image of your Halloween pumpkin (real or fake) decorated with Duck Tape®. The contest will end on October 31st. So get crafting! (If you need additional inspiration check out all the entries here.)

My little pumpkins don’t even come close to the creativity of some of the entrants but I think they are cute and look adorable on our bar and on my desk…
These pumpkins were so easy to make and would be a perfect craft for a Halloween party or Girls Night in too. Here is how I made them:
Now go make some Duck Tape® pumpkins! Be sure to show them off by tagging me on facebook or instagram and using #StickOrTreat. For tons of awesome inspiration, you can follow Duck Tape® on Twitter @TheDuckBrand.
