It is on like Donkey Kong, guys. I’m in full-out fall Halloween mode and I ain’t mad about it. Every year, I love putting together a super-simple no-carve pumpkin idea for all my peeps who hate getting pumpkin guts underneath their fingernails, so here we go! May I present to you: No-Carve Copper Herringbone Pumpkins! These little cuties are just the right amount of chic and spooky, so get your materials (of which there are only two) and let’s do it.
Make Time: 10 Minutes
I’m pretty sure you are all smart enough to get the gist of how to make these buddies, but just to hear myself talk I’ll tell ya anyway. Start by tracing down each of the vertical pumpkin lines.
Next, between two of the lines fill in the space with closely set diagonal lines. In the next space, repeat the diagonal lines at the opposite angle.
Continue your way around the pumpkin until all of the space is filled in with the herringbone pattern.
If you’re fancy, color the stem with the paint pens too! I think that’s maybe my favorite part.
I tried with a slim pen and also one with a heavier tip, so don’t be afraid to experiment! I’ve got these beauts on my kitchen table, giving me a little fall sass. I think it would look great on full sized white pumpkins, too — set ’em on your front porch and let everyone ooh and aah. xoxo
