Thanks to Pinterest, I got the idea of creating a chevron-patterned pumpkin. At first I thought I would use the duck tape and then spray paint it, but then I realized the duck tape looks pretty damn okay. (Plus the spray paint wasn't sticking to the fake pumpkins I got at Michael's. Any ideas?)
I just kind of went with it. It looks better from afar, but I wanted you guys to get the general idea.
