diy halloween: not your average jack-o-lantern

A normal carved Jack-o-Lantern is definitely a Halloween staple, but it's also kind of BO-RING. I'm a huge fan of changing up the pumpkin with paint, yarn, fabric and most definitely glitter.

Sort of like these: (from Pinterest)

For a more chic look, keep a color palette of 2-3 colors and use pretty stencils.

Pumpkins covered in gathered velvet have a nice posh vibe to them.

How about a little paint AND some sequins? Oh, and a glittered spider too!

How about some yarn-wrapped pumpkins? Yes please!
