No-carve pumpkin: Bewitching fishnet

Decorating a pumpkin has never been this easy and mess-free—all you need is some fishnet stockings, spray paint and your Halloween spirit!

1 small pumpkin
Spray paint
Fishnet stockings
Glue gun
Craft stick

1. Spray-paint the pumpkin and stem your desired colour. Let dry, about 1 hour.

2. Cut a leg off the stockings. Slide the pumpkin into the stocking leg.

3. Trim the stocking at the stem of the pumpkin. Apply hot glue around the stem and, using a craft stick, press stocking edge into the glue to secure.
