With an October 31st birthday, I would be remiss not to love Halloween. In fact, I think I love it even more as an adult (especially as a mother, seeing it through my children’s eyes) than I did as a child myself.
My 9-year-old daughter, 6-year-old son and I love decorating our NYC apartment for Halloween. We may not have a front porch or yard at our disposal, but inside our four walls we manage to make our home look very festive.
In this post, I want to share how to make our latest pumpkin creation. It’s very pretty and soooo easy. I’m no Martha Stewart, so I’m always on the lookout for deceptively easy ways to decorate beautiful pumpkins. Thanks to a Halloween decor magazine at the supermarket checkout (I apologize I can’t remember which one), this year we perfected our “Zebra Pumpkin.” Take a look:
Amazing, right? You, too, can make a gorgeous pumpkin that will fool your friends into thinking you are the best artist on earth, when in fact all you did was show some good taste in choosing a roll of tape.
