A couple weeks ago I was contacted by an editor from the Clinton Kelly team. Many of you may already know who Clinton is but for those of you who don’t, he currently has his own TV show called The Chew. It’s on ABC during the week and on the east coast, it airs at 1pm. Anyway, he just launched his amazing new website featuring everything from food, fashion, home and DIY. They asked if I would like to participate in the Clinton Kelly’s 30-Minute Pumpkin Challenge and of course, I said yes. So we created this cute diy halloween pumpkin featuring the naughty witch cooking in the cauldron. hehe
The baby pumpkins are freaked out to say the least.
To create this look, you will need a pair of halloween socks, polyfiber fill or paper towels (to fill the socks), stickers, faux large pumpkin, googly eyes and white spray paint.
Once the top was removed, I spray painted the pumpkin white and filled my socks. I also decided to add a bit of the polyfill (you can get polyfill in any craft store) around the top of the pumpkin to create a boiling smokey look. I mean, she is cooking right? 😉
I saw this cute saying at Michaels on a sign and thought it would be perfect for the front of our halloween pumpkin. There are so many fun stickers to choose from, these ended up perfect for a fun halloween look. I added a witch hat to pumpkin from HomeGoods and he was good to go.
My husband came home from work the other day and said, “oh, is that mommy in the cauldron?” haha. He thinks he is pretty funny. I think this would be perfect for a kid halloween party situated at the beverage station. Imagine a punch bowl filled with apple cider and these cute guys there on display. Thank you to Clinton for inviting me, along with a few other bloggers to this fun pumpkin challenge. You can find more amazing ideas on clintonkelly.com. You can also make your own 30 minute challenge pumpkin and post it on Instagram using the following hashtags: #pumpkinchallenge #pumpkins #30minpumpkin. Tag @clintonkellyofficial with your crafts and he will regram his favorites!
PS. I saw Clinton’s pumpkin creation last week and I have to admit, I busted out laughing ;). The look on his dog was priceless.
