No Sew Jack-O-Lantern Dress and Easy Pumpkin Hair Bun
I shared how to make this “Jack-O-Lantern Dress” and “Pumpkin Hair Bun” on the show today. I wanted to create something festive for my daughter to wear for Halloween. I saw these black and white, chevron dresses at Walmart for $6.00 and the pumpkin idea hit me.
I saw this bun on my Instagram feed and thought it was such a cute idea.
The idea came from Beckie at http://www.infarrantlycreative.net/. She has a very popular blog full of great ideas. Her blog has great instructions on her blog, so rather than type it up again, here is the link to her steps. http://www.infarrantlycreative.net/halloween-hair-pumpkin-bun/ The only thing I did differently on the show is use a green sparkly ribbon.
For the pumpkin dress, you need the following supplies.
2-3 squares of fabric (orange, black and green)
3-Heat-N-Bond (I only use this brand. It is the most reliable and my applique stays on securely)
5-Jack-O-Lantern image to make your template. Here is the one I used.
This short video will show you how I made this dress in just a few minutes. Literally!
My daughter was one of the models on today’s show, and people stopped us all afternoon and asked about her bun and dress. I think it turned out really cute! What do you think?
You can find the supplies for the dress at Jo-Ann Fabric and Craft Stores.
