FOR HER: EFFORTLESS & BOLD
Go for an breezy, retro-inspired look with bright, tropical florals on white, like this eye-catching kimono-inspired maxi romper. With its romper-meets-maxi silhouette, it’s the perfect balance of classic and playful — and it will transition from day to night effortlessly. Make a statement in strappy block heels and finish the look with layered jewelry!

DIY Painted Pumpkins

Halloween is one of our favorite holidays, and we can’t wait to see all the spooky surprises this year has in store. One of our favorite ways to prep for the holiday is by decorating pumpkins. Since October 26 is National Pumpkin Day, we ‘re kicking off Halloween week with a tutorial to show you just how easy it is to design and paint your own stenciled pumpkins. The end result looks like it took endless hours, but DIY Painted Pumpkins are actually easy and fun to create. Read on to see how you can personalize your fall décor today!

What You’ll Need: 

  • Pumpkins (as many as you’d like – we used three)
  • Permanent maker (fine-tipped works best)
  • Masking tape
  • Stencil of your design
  • Black acrylic paint
  • Palette or paper plate
  • Fine-tipped paintbrushes

How-To:

DIY Painted Pumpkins

Step 1: Gather all of your supplies. You can create your own stencil or buy one pre-made! We drew our Eagle design on thin cardboard and cut out the center.

Step 2: Tape the stencil to the pumpkin with masking tape. Make sure it’s secure!

Step 3: Using a fine-tipped permanent marker, draw around the stencil to outline your design on the pumpkin.

Step 4: Take off the stencil and begin filling in your design with paint. You can use a palette or a paper plate to hold the paint.We kept it minimalistic using black paint only, but you could use multiple colors if you’d like. Be sure to go slowly so that you stay inside the stenciled design.

Step 5: Let it dry! In the meantime, continue with your other pumpkins.
