would i do it again? : yep!
it's probably no surprise that i'm finding my energy lacking this halloween. baby-making really zaps everything out of you. i get tired just thinking of all the spooky crafts i managed to squeeze in last year.
so when something this easy pops into my head, i'm going for it.
all you need are a pumpkin and some fishnet tights. oops, and scissors.
i found my fishnet stockings at target. they were $10, which sounds like a lot -- but one pair of tights should last at least four pumpkins so the price really isn't that bad.
technically, all you have to do is shove the pumpkin stem-first into the tights (hence the one-star difficulty rating). but...it's surprisingly hard to do. the stockings i bought were pretty thick, which is good because there's a lot of tugging and yanking involved. i couldn't even stop to take pictures for fear the tights would slide right off the pumpkin again.
the stem will end up in the stocking toe:
i tied a knot at the bottom of the pumpkin and trimmed off the excess:
you can leave it as so...
you feel like battling the stockings again you're feeling a bit racier, you can do another layer of fishnet to add some more interest:
i think i may do a couple more, maybe with some lacy or animal-print tights...
easiest halloween EVER...
