Bored with cute pumpkins, sweet looking pumpkins or scary pumpkin for this year Halloween? You may want to try this pretty yet gothic style pumpkin. It’s not made from a regular pumpkin, but made from a plank. It’s a square black lacey pumpkin with orange ribbon. Black lace together with orange ribbon are really stressed out the gothic look for a Halloween pumpkin. My gothic lacey pumpkin is perfect for an adult Halloween decoration; moreover, it is easy to make and quick too.
A mature pumpkin decoration would add more sophistication to your Halloween decor. And a gothic style is a perfect way to celebrate Halloween without looking over spooky or childish. Take a look at on how I made this DIY Pumpkin Gothic Halloween and you will know how simple it is to have a gothic Halloween decor by using only black lace and orange ribbon to decorate a white plank pumpkin.
Things To Prepare
Different lace pattern would give a different look to the gothic pumpkin. So, don’t be afraid of using other pattern than my lace pattern. And like I have told you on my Halloween Black and White Sign, that if you don’t have a black lace and you have a white lace instead; then you can color it black with black marker before you spend more money to buy some black lace. Anyway, let’s find out my short list of supplies to make my DIY Pumpkin Gothic Halloween:
- A white plank ( wooden or other material would fine as long as it is white)
- Black lace
- Orange ribbon
- UHU clear glue
How To Make
I promise you, that the process of making this gothic lacey pumpkin is easy and quick. You can make it big, regular or in small size. Put them together in different sizes and have them as a focal point to your Halloween decor. Without any further, let’s just find out my steps on how to make DIY Pumpkin Gothic Halloween:
1 .Have a white plank cut into a square pumpkin.
2. Cut a black lace into 3 parts with the same length.
3. Glue the black laces one by one and wait until it’s dry before you proceed to the next step.
4. Take the orange ribbon and tie a bow and then secure it to the lacey pumpkin by applying glue to it. Let it dry. And you are done! As simple as that!
My DIY Gothic Pumpkin is not just great for Halloween, but you can also have it as your fall decoration. It’s just great to have a decoration that will match more than one occasion, just like this lacey black and white pumpkin. It would look fantastic both for Gothic Halloween or for black and white fall decor!
