Admit it. You saw all that fancy Japanese tape on the design blogs, went out and ordered yourself some, and now you're stuck with beautiful, albeit semi-impractical, rolls of Washi tape. What to do? DIY yourself a tartan-inspired pumpkin, that's what!
Run the tape from stem to bum (that's a technical term, P.S.), creating your vertical stripes first. For a plaid effect, repeat with matching or contrasting tape around the circumference. Easy peasy.
