Fashion Pumpkins! Which Gourd Gets The Gold?
If you think our nail art DIYs are impressive, you should see what we can do with a pumpkin…. 'Tis the season for Halloween decorations, and we're definitely not the scarecrows-'n'-mechanical-ghost types. However, with a little creativity and some extra-strength glue, we're game to turn tired Halloween standbys into a DIY we can be proud of... and even wear! We asked the craftiest peeps in our office to spend the weekend carving out their niches (if you will). Ahead, the prime picks from the R29 pumpkin patch…won't you tell us which fashion pumpkin is your favorite, please? Make sure you get to the last slide to vote!
Artist Name: Amanda Keiser (Reserve Copy Editor)
Pumpkin Name: "Jack-O-Louis."
Inspiration: "Logos! Louis Vuitton Monogram Canvas is so iconic that those charming little symbols speak for themselves — even on a pumpkin. Plus, the brown-and-orange combo is super Halloween-y."
Materials Needed: "A large pumpkin, acrylic paint, leather craft ribbon, and a Pumpkin Master Kit from K-Mart."
Time It Took: "Four hours."
Will The Trend Or The Pumpkin Rot First? "LV's signature Monogram Canvas has been alive and well since 1896, so my money's on the Pumpkin going first. I'll miss you, Jack-O-Louis!"
