Halloween How To: Turtleneck 3 Ways

Get in here, boo! For the third year, we asked #AerieREAL ladies from our office to play dress up and make three Halloween looks out of our fave fall essential… the t-neck! Read on to see how you can take your turtleneck from day to play this Halloween.

Can’t touch this!

Jill is Aerie’s Associate Manager of Brand Marketing, and only prickly on the outside with her Halloween Cactus look. DIY by threading pipe cleaners through the weaves of a green t-neck sweater (being careful not to rip it!). Add some faux flowers for a look that’s in full bloom!Halloween How To: Turtleneck 3 WaysHalloween How To: Turtleneck 3 WaysHalloween How To: Turtleneck 3 WaysHalloween How To: Turtleneck 3 WaysBlog_Costume_Cactus2Halloween How To: Turtleneck 3 Ways

Sundae Fun Day 

Senior Coordinator of Talent Acquisition, Sarah, is the sweetest in this cute and fun ice cream costume. Cut some felt strips, and glue or pin them along with colored cotton balls onto a basic t-neck. The cherry headband tops it off!

Mighty Mouse 

Chloe is the Lead Lab Associate for Creative Window Marketing, and she’s all ears in our easy mouse costume. Cut some fabric that matches back to your fave gray t-neck and layer it with smaller pink circles for the ears. Sew on a coordinating “tail” and you’re a mouse, duh!

Boo-tiful Pumpkin Carving Stencils

Cutest pumpkin on the block starts here! Print one (or all) of our four Aerie-ized stencils and get carving.

Boo-tiful Pumpkin Carving Stencils

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • Pumpkin
  • X-Acto Knife (scissors work ,too)
  • Sharpie
  • Printer
  • Tape

Boo-tiful Pumpkin Carving Stencils

STEP 1: Cut a circle around the stem of your pumpkin. Remove the top (save it!) and clean the seeds and goop out from inside.

STEP 2: Choose your favorite Aerie stencil from our downloadable pumpkin stencils file. Print the stencil on 8.5″ x 11″ paper.

STEP 3: With your X-Acto knife, cut around the dark outline, creating a stencil out of the printout.

STEP 4: Tape the stencil outline onto the area of your pumpkin you want to carve.

STEP 5: Using a sharpie, trace the inner lines of the stencil.

STEP 6: Using a pumpkin carving kit or any carving tool you want (we used smaller pottery tools), begin to cut out the outline of the stenciled drawing.

STEP 7: Be sure to follow the guidelines on each stencil, differentiating between the no-carve zones and etch carving areas.

STEP 5: Place a lit candle inside of your pumpkin and replace the top.

STEP 6: Show off your hard work!

BONUS TIPS

  • To keep your pumpkin fresh, spray it with a bleach/water mix.
  • Rub vaseline on the carved sections of pumpkin to keep mold away.
  • Use battery-powered candles to reduce hazard and provide more light.
