Pumpkins Pumpkins Everywhere!

There are so many options in decorating with pumpkins these days…carved, painted, real, faux, large, small…the list goes on. I’ve gathered together some of the coolest ideas I’ve found on the web so far.
I think the white pumpkins are so interesting and can give a very modern feel. Think about painting patterns on them, or spelling out words & monograms.


 These chic white pumpkins above are so decorative, they can take you right into Thanksgiving(with the exception of the web and bug designs). Look at the amazing statement those pumpkins make in the dining room above! They use large nail heads to create beautiful patterns(click on pictures to enlarge).
Of course I always love a zebra print, whether painted on or tied on with ribbon. And ric rac trim looks great outlining the natural lines of the pumpkin.
If traditional orange pumpkins are your preference, why not give it some Bling with sequin trim, glitter paint, or rhinestone stickers from the craft store.
You can also create drama with paint or ribbon in contrasting colors. Use the smaller size pumpkins around the room, as table centerpieces, or at place settings.
Go modern with geometric cut-outs.

Create whimsy by inserting lollipopsinto a pumpkin for a dessert display. Wrap a box with a fun graphic print and use it as a riser to lift the pumpkin up.

    I have the same white, Halloween pumpkins above my kitchen cabinets! Love all the ideas you collected!

    Great ideas! I can't wait to decorate!

  3. Love these ideas! The THANKS pumpkins are my favorite. I'm working on my own pumpkin (trying one I haven't done before) but have run into some issues. Went to Michaels again yesterday. Hopefully done today?

    Thanks for sharing!

  5. Yes, I taped every other grove of the pumpkins and spray painted black. Check them out over on my front porch. Great ideas.
