No Sew Jack-O-Lantern Dress and Easy Pumpkin Hair Bun

By  |  0 Comments

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.

1-Dress

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)

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?
