5. Just a little tape and some black paint for a chevron design on your pumpkins

The following DIY nails the look of elegant pumpkins with this chevron design.


To achieve a chevron effect on foam pumpkins, start by taping out your desired pattern using painter’s tape, then trim any excess tape. Apply white spray paint for a large pumpkin or brush on latex craft paint for a smaller one. Allow the paint to dry, peel off the tape, and touch up any imperfections with a fine-tip paintbrush or black Sharpie if desired. This technique transforms plain foam pumpkins into stylish chevron-patterned decor for fall or Halloween.
