We have an amazing archive of the best (and sometimes easiest!) pumpkin ideas to make your fall decor make you smile…from over-the-top color to more natural fall tones. But my very favorite tip of all for pumpkin decorating?! Use faux-pumpkins! Head to Michaels or another craft store to pick up some pumpkins – and your decor will last years (and not get eaten by local wildlife!) Here are a few projects that came to life with our faux pumpkin friends…
Pumpkins as Table Settings – I love using pumpkins to bring bright color to a fall table-scape and to have one at each place for a name setting if you’re hosting a get together. They’re easy to find at the grocery store, inexpensive, right on season, and so fun! (More details here.)
Pumpkin as Planter – How cute and perfect for the season is this? Cut windows in your pumpkin, or a big opening, and use the interior to “pot” you flowers so they can poke through the openings! You can paint your pumpkin a fun color, or leave it natural and let the flowers bring the color! Either way, you’ll have a beautiful and unique pumpkin display at your front door or throughout your house! (More details here.)
Color-Block Pumpkins – This style works in a big stacked bunch (as pictured) but also as a single pumpkin for a great statement piece. We used variations of the same color to make the color-block on ours, but you could also mix whichever colors you like. Including the stem in the painted block elevates the look even more.
