To give your no-carve pumpkin a rocker chic vibe this season, try this no-muss, no-fuss DIY push pin pumpkin. It’s simple to create, but makes a hardcore impact.
To make a push pin pumpkin, you will need:
A Stencil and Scissors
Step One: Cut Your Stencil
Print a design you’d like to create on your pumpkin and cut out the design (or go free-hand if you dare!). We’ll be using push pins to outline a block letter “H” for Halloween, but there’s really no limit to the designs push pins can create.
Step Two: Affix Stencil to Pumpkin
Using adhesive dots on the back of your stencil, affix it to the pumpkin.
Step Three: Paint Pumpkin and Let Dry
Paint your entire pumpkin, going right over the stencil. We’ve chosen a white paint to contrast with the orange pumpkin and gold push pins, but black would work well, too!
Step Four: Peel Off Stencil
Once your pumpkin is fully dry, peel off the stencil.
Step Five: Pin the Border
Using your gold push pins, outline of the design on your pumpkin to really make it pop!
When placed on a front stoop or table surrounded by candles, the push pins glisten in the dark, and create major Halloween drama.
