5. Washi Tape and Animal Pumpkins. We are obsessed with washi tape - it has so many uses for decorating! Apply to the indentations of your pumpkins for a pop of pattern. Use patterned paper cutouts and pipe cleaners to make your own black cat or spooky bat! Glitter the stems and apply decorations with mod podge.
