Black Lace and White Ribbon Pumpkin

I have wanted to cover a pumpkin in lace since I saw one using an old pair of lacy hose. I finally just stopped and did it.


Total Time: 2 Hours

Yield: 1


When you see the supplies photo, you will notice about the only thing I used was the pumpkin and the black lace. I found other things I liked better along the way.


  1. I measured the basic circumference of the pumpkin and then cut a "sort of square" of the lace. This lace was from a cape so the pieces weren't square, but like a panel.
  2. After cutting the shape, I began to glue (then pin once I found the foam to be soft enough) the sides.
  3. Then I did the same thing the other direction. I was going to trim the "points", but found them to be kind of fun for the final effect, so I left them.
  4. I than gathered the excess fabric and began to fold and fold again, making sure it was all secured to the pumpkin. The corner that remained I left for a "ruffle".
  5. I had three types of lace in bows on the top, but didn't like the way they looked. I found these faux snowballs that came off a Christmas decoration from a couple years back. I began to glue them on at random. As you can see, the first idea for the top was lace. I took it off as soon as I saw the little orbs were white and shiny.
  6. I finally found some pretty white ribbon with silver edging. That was all it took. I made a 6 loop bow and then added two tails.The final step was to find something to put in the center. I wanted something simple I could embellish. I used this earring. I put some glitter nail polish on it and when dry, pried off the back and hot glued it to the center. N-JOY!!
