Pumpkins + Gourds
Pumpkins and gourds go hand-in-hand with the fall holidays of Halloween and Thanksgiving. HipLatina has assembled five of our favorite DIY Halloween ideas for decorating pumpkins and gourds. Some of the creations are scary, creepy, and sparkle, while others may look like sprinkle donuts and a few more traditional gourds. Curious on how the tradition began? Carving pumpkins into jack-o’-lanterns is a popular Halloween tradition that originated hundreds of years ago in Ireland. Back then, however, jack-o’-lanterns were made out of turnips or potatoes; it wasn’t until Irish immigrants arrived in America and discovered the pumpkin that a new Halloween ritual was born.
Next Friday HipLatina will share our favorites for creating a traditional ofrenda honoring Día de los Muertos.
