Looking for an easy way to wow your party guests this Halloween?
And I know you’ll share in my excitement when I tell you that I. Have. Found It!
Are you ready?
Are you sure?
Hold on you to your pumpkin spiced lattes.
It’s the Pumpkin Wine Dispenser. Or as HGTV calls it “Hallow-Wine!”
This clever and easy to make pumpkin wine dispenser will completely wow your guests. It’s like a jack-o-lantern, but it holds wine!
I first discovered this glorious feat of pumpkin-wine-vessel engineering on Facebook. It was a video from HGTV.
In fact, check out this pin with the link to the original HGTV Facebook video.
Pretty amazing, right?
What I love about this DIY is that it’s totally doable.
All you need is a pumpkin, a wine box, and a sharpie marker. (Of course you can get very elaborate, and I’ve included some ideas below).
How to turn a pumpkin into a wine dispenser
That’s almost better than a horse drawn carriage. (Sorry, Cinderella.)
Step 1: Cut a wide circle around the stem and save to use as a lid.
Step 2: Clean out your pumpkin as you would for a traditional jack-o-latern.
Step 3: Cut out a small hole at the bottom for the wine bag spigot.
Step 4: Insert the bag from your favorite wine box and feed the spigot through the spigot hole.
Note: If you are using white wine, be sure to add a couple of ice packs.
Step 5: Place the stem back on top.
Step 6: Call over some friends and enjoy!
Design ideas and Tips for your Pumpkin wine dispenser
Don’t forget to release your inner-Martha Stewart (or should we now say Joanna Gaines?) and decorate your wine dispenser. If you need some inspiration, I’ve gathered some of my favorite examples from Pinterest below.
But first the Tips to make this DIY as easy as possible!
Tip #1: You can decorate with paint, sharpies, or even carve your pumpkin like a traditional jack-o-latern.
Tip #2: If you’re looking for less mess, try a faux pumpkin from your local craft store. You’ll also be able to reuse it for future parties.
(Now that’s efficient!)
