It’s a tropical Halloween and I’m sharing a DIY Halloween Pumpkin Hawaiian Warrior Helmet.
I know traditional Halloween decor is all about ghosts, goblins, and witches, but sometimes you have to change things up. For the longest time, I’ve been wanting to do a tropical Halloween. So this year, I created a Tropical Mermaid Halloween Display and decided to continue with the tropical decor! It really gives me island vibes and I love it!
So, I started to brainstorm on all the things that reminded me of Hawaii. The typical things came to mind…pineapples, beaches, tropical flowers, etc… These are all nice, but we’re talking Halloween and I wanted something with a strong vibe. Then, I remembered the Hawaiian Warriors and their helmets, called Makini. In the past, Makini were made with gourds and worn by warriors that protect the chief or the alii. Nowadays, minature versions of the Makini are made and are called Ikaika, which means strong in Hawaiian. If you visit Hawaii, you might see them hanging on car mirrors. Anyway, this is where the inspiration for this DIY Halloween Pumpkin Hawaiian Warrior Helmet came from.
