I’ve ranted and raved over Frogtape®’s new chevron Shape Tape™. In fact, you may be sick of me going on and on about it and may be sick of seeing my ridiculously easy chevron tray and chevron witch hat.
But, now, I’m going to blow your mind with Shape Tape™ again.
Friends, let me introduce you to Frogtape® Scallop Shape Tape™.
I’ll give you a second to collect yourselves.
I started out with the tape and two pumpkins.
One pumpkin is real and one is a faux one I picked up at a local craft store. We’ll start with the faux black one.
First, I put a band of Shape Tape™ around the middle of the pumpkin. Since this was a curved surface, you have to work in sections to keep it level, or from turning downward. After it was level, I pressed the tape down really well to remove any air bubbles.
I repeated this with two more bands of tape along the top and bottom of the pumpkin. However, with these I left half of the tape (on the top, the half going toward the stem, and on the bottom the half going toward the bottom) open. I wanted to keep this part black, so I put plastic wrap over those portions, then pressed the tape down around the plastic wrap.
With the real pumpkin, I put two bands of Shape Tape™ around the top and bottom, once more leaving half of it open where I could apply plastic wrap. I also turned this tape with the scallop points inward to change up the pattern a bit.
After I put the plastic wrap around the top and bottom, I pressed the tape down well again to remove air bubbles and spray painted both pumpkins purple. Just like regular FrogTape®, ShapeTape™ has PaintBlock® Technology which means when it meets paint, it forms a gel barrier to prevent paint bleed.
After spray painting the pumpkins, I removed the tape and plastic wrap. To snaz up the stems some, I added some glitter. I also added some gold embelishments to the pumpkins to “spook” them up a bit.
These fabulous pumpkins were so easy to make and took less than an hour! An easy and stylish Halloween craft!
