Many dorms don't allow you to carve pumpkins for health and safety reasons, but that doesn't mean you can't have a pumpkin at all! Instead of carving a pumpkin, you can use glitter or paint to create a fun jack-o'-lantern face.
Here is what you'll need.
- Tape off the eyes, nose, and mouth creating any shape and size you'd like your jack-o'-lantern face to be.
- Use a paint brush or your finger to spread the glue inside the taped area.
- Quickly cover the glue with desired glitter. I used black, but I think purple would have been fun too!
- Let sit for about an hour or more to dry, then remove tape to see your handy work!
You could also just make fun designs on your pumpkin, like I did to this baby pumpkin.
Once your pumpkins are dry, pick a place to display them. You can also add other items to you festive corner, such as Halloween candy (my favorite is candy corn) or flowers in a mason jar.
Here is my festive ode to Halloween. I love how it spruces up my room and adds a touch of home.
