10 Washi Tape Crafts

Do something totally unique and new with your Halloween pumpkin this year! With a little washi tape and some stickers, your child can give her pumpkin an amazingly unique look! Practice designing patterns using stripes, zigzags, geometric shapes, or draw a stick figure picture. The sky's the limit!

What You Need:

  • Pumpkin (clean and dry)
  • Washi tape (assorted styles)
  • Stickers

What You Do:

  1. Ask your child to decide what kind of design she wants to create on her pumpkin. Have her describe the line quality she wants to use. Will the lines be straight, curvy, symmetrical? Will they create zigzags, or cross over one another like a spider web?
  2. Have them apply the washi tape to the pumpkin, pressing firmly as they go. If there are mistakes, have them gently lift the tape and reapply it onto the surface of the pumpkin.
  3. Finish the pattern, or design, using stickers.
