Have you carved or decorated pumpkins yet? Dan and I bought two pumpkins to decorate over the weekend but didn’t get to them because we were too busy stuffing our faces with fish & chips. I bought a few things to recreate this pumpkin with the bats so we’ll see how that turns out. Is it weird that I like pumpkins as is? Without any decorations? If I had a porch I would decorate it with some of those multi-colored pumpkins. But that isn’t really much fun when you want to do something creative with your hands. I’ve done a DIY Pumpkin Ideas post in the past but since then I’ve seen so many pretty ideas on Pinterest that it was time to do a second one.
Pumpkin Thumbtack Message | Country Living – This is my favorite pumpkin idea, mostly because of the matte green paint used on the pumpkin but the thumbtack message is super cute.
Chalkboard Pumpkins | Better Recipes – Chalkboard paint! This is a fun way to display a menu, seen here for Thanksgiving, but it could also be used as a drink menu for a Halloween party.
DIY Sequin Polka Dot Pumpkin | Sugar & Cloth – Who needs glitter when you have sequins?! The sequin polka dots makes a bigger impact by having the 3D effect. They almost look like flowers.
Decoupaged Pumpkin | Country Living – I’ve seen quite a few decoupaged pumpkins but the black and white images taken from Pictorial Webster’s Visual Dictionary of Curiosities are so perfect and spooky.
Fun Pumpkin and Succulent Craft | Succulents and Sunshine – The colors of the succulent cuttings look so beautiful with the natural orange pumpkins.
Easy Halloween DIY: Glitter & Floral Pumpkins | Amy of Homey Oh My! for PB Teen – This pumpkin is unique because instead of displaying a pattern, the pumpkin is used as a canvas for a retro mod floral scene.
