Check out all these ways to utilize these little orange bulbs around the house … and a bit outside … to bring in that fall feeling before Halloween even pops up!!

1. Add some sew-worthy accessories.

Add some buttons, zippers and bits of fabric to create some crafty pumpkins. Display them on the windowsill of the craft room or right outside the front door!

Fortunately, duct tape comes in a variety of colors and prints now. And fortunately, even the least crafty of us can use duct tape to create something special. Jazz up your pumpkins with some of this!
