Halloween is almost here which brings the fall home decorations and pumpkin spice lattes at Starbucks. Our favorite part of this season is going to the pumpkin patch and buying the perfect pumpkins to decorate. Although buying your pumpkins and leaving them undecorated is okay, it’s much better to take the time to be a little creative and change things up. We have a few ideas for you to try out this fall that you may have not have seen before. Enjoy this list of pumpkin decor ideas!
Matte painted pumpkins – You may have seen painted pumpkins before. Consider writing trick or treat over a black painted pumpkin or making it completely black or white. You can go in any direction with your pumpkins – from painting a skull to keeping it simple with a single color all depending on the rest of your decorations.
Like previously mentioned, you can paint a face instead of cutting out one. This saves time and money and can look just as good if done right.
Stack your pumpkins. This can help liven up an empty wall or create an interesting backdrop for picture taking. This pumpkin decor post can be perfect to put on any porch.
Old fashioned pumpkin cutting. There is nothing that beats a traditional cut pumpkin. We came up with a few ideas in the picture above to get your creative juices flowing. Consider using stencils to make the process easier. Search ‘stencils pumpkin carving’ and see creative ideas like bats, spiders, ghosts, and cats as easy stencils.
Pumpkins with flowers are a new trend for fall home décor. It can be a clever hack to get more greenery in your home.
Put those pumpkins in your bathroom for a different feel. We always see pumpkins on the porch, but what about the bathroom? This is so often overlooked that we can’t even find a picture to display!
Another one of our pumpkin decor ideas is to use a pumpkin as a food serving bowl for soup.
Celebrate this fall with your backyard birds by housing them in a pumpkin. Put seeds in it to create the perfect bird feeder!
