We made some henna pumpkins! We’ve joined forces with the more than talented illustrator, Farah Allegue, to create these boho Halloween pumpkins inspired by henna patterns. Farah has apparently been making this kind of flourishing pattern forever, and I really believe it as I saw her draw live without even tracing the henna patterns on the pumpkins!
I’m still wondering how she manages to make everything so symmetrical. I guess practice makes perfect! Anyhow, don’t worry, you don’t have to be as good as her, we’ve got you covered! We have a little template with henna motifs you can download and print out. Click here to download it. You can use it as inspiration to decorate your own pumpkins or you can even use it as a stencil. How gorgeous would this set up look as a table center piece for a boho Halloween party! (Thanks to my friend Camille for the wonderful picture styling.)
Also, aren’t these white pumpkins cool? I think they are my fave. In any case, they are perfect for drawing on! You can find them at any farmer’s market these days.
Ps: A little picture behind the scenes of Farah drawing her free hand henna motifs! Apparently, the best pen to draw these motifs on your pumpkin is a paint pen (she used a Posca pen if you’d like to try it out.)
We’d love to see your boho pumpkins! Tag us via Instagram so we can have a look 🙂 Have fun! -Stephanie
