I decided to do just black and white pumpkins in my dining room this year, so I thought I’d share a few ideas for doing non-traditional pumpkins for your decor.
I feel that you can make pumpkins look however you want, whatever fits into your decor! Below are some things I used to makeover my pumkins, stickers, decals, rub-ons etc.
Orange doesn’t work for everyone! If your house is pastels you might want to just go with the white pumpkins. But you can also spray paint them any color you want. Pink, grey, purple, glitter them, rhinestone them – anything goes as far as I’m concerned! I painted a few red this year!
I made one polka dot pumpkin. It just makes me smile to look at it! I already had small colored dots leftover from when we had a garage sale and I just filled those in with a black sharpie. So very hi tech of me right!~smile. I also bought a package of Martha Stewart dots from Michaels and filled those in with a black sharpie too. You can cut circles out of black construction paper and glue them on a pumpkin if you don’t have any of those sticky dots.
This pumpkin topiary is made from one medium and one small pumpkin. The scrolly design on the front is from a rub on I found at Hobby Lobby. I made this one last year.
Aren’t these cute! I love fleur’s so when I found a little package of fleur stickers I knew I had to find a way to use them!
These two are my favorites! They’re just stickers from the scrapbook aisle!
Go to the scrapbook section and have a look around. There are so many cute stickers you can use to decorate your pumpkins. There’s no reason why you can’t do a pumpkin with baseball stickers on it or a pink pumpkin with a ballerina on it. Use paint pens and do more than just draw a face – draw designs on it. Use your imagination and do what will work for your home!
You can paint real pumpkins but for the price of a real pumpkin I can get a faux one that will last forever. I bought two last year at the end of the season when they were very inexpensive. That’s how I shop. This year for next year!
I hope I’ve given you some ideas for decorating your pumpkins! Have fun with your pumpkins! They’re easy to work with (except when using a stencil-I find those hard to manipulate). Thanks so much for stopping by and have a great weekend!
