Tip: The bigger the pumpkin, the harder it will be to fit the stinking balloon around it. Just trust me. Unless you find some crazy XL balloons, stick with mini, small and medium to M/L sized pumpkins.
Step 1: Stretch out your balloons.
Pull a part and blow up your balloon as big as it will inflate.
Step 2: Once you’ve stretched the balloon, cut around 1-2 inches off the spout of the balloon. I suggest playing around with this on a tester balloon to get a good size cut- it can be as even or curved as you want! That’s the best part.
Step 3: I had to enlist my husband to help with this part. It’s easier if you have two hands: one person stretching the balloon over the sides of the pumpkin and one person holding one side. Trust me. After MANY failed attempts at this, we decided it’s a 2 person job.
IDK if we’re just crazy or what – let me know if it’s as hard for you!
Step 4: Place the balloon in the position you’re wanting – I like it half way up!
And I had no idea how many different types of balloons they make these days – seriously you guys. You can get really fun creative with this one! I say even after Halloween if the colors are right! I’d even throw a few on a Thanksgiving Table-scape! Let me know if you try it 🙂
Other than my little DIY project, I simply threw out bowls of candy corn (super easy and cute) and lined our front door and porch with the character (so ugly they’re so cute) pumpkins in white, green and light orange. The uglier the better in my book! How are you guys decorating for fall? Let me know in the comments below 🙂
