I asked some of my favorite designers to “recreate” the traditional jack-o-lantern using their personal design techniques. The result was better than I expected! Using paint, contact paper, pens, florals, and a drill, each of these can be recreated at home to add to your halloween decor. And my favorite part is that they require even less work (and mess) than carving out a pumpkin. Hurry – there’s still time!
Abstract Paint by Logan Ledford
Logan has already been featured on Liv Studio as a local designer to watch. What I love about her art is it’s simplicity coupled with a broad color spectrum. Her pumpkins are a direct reflection of the pieces she sells. They’re vibrant, fun and eclectic – a perfect juxtaposition to the darkness of halloween.
Contact Paper by Savannah Hayes
Savannah is a textile magician. Via contact paper, she used her popular Zadar pattern to wrap her pumpkin, adding both dimension and style. In fact, she just launched SavannahHayes.com featuring tea towels, throws, phone cases, pillows and fabrics that would make anyone swoon. Although a unique collaboration, I am looking forward to working with Savannah on future event styling. I’m just imagining a simple but classic black and white tablescape.
Typography by Victoria Macey
Victoria has also been featured as a local designer on the blog – and it’s no surprise. Her typography game is superb! After spray painting her pumpkin black, she projected a handwritten illustration and used it as a guide to write on the pumpkin. Resourceful – I think so!
