To make this chevron pumpkin, you can go the easy route and buy a white pumpkin and paint the black chevron pattern or you can do what I did and use what you already have. Still easy.
After it dries, peel off the tape to reveal your chevron pattern. You may notice that I used electrical tape. Please don’t do this. I beg you. Don’t do it! Electrical tape peels paint right off…. like so
So I needed to do a bit of touch-up work with some black acrylic paint. But after the touch up, I had a pretty stylish pumpkin.
