Decorating White Pumpkins

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.

Decorating white pumpkins - crown decal pumpkin

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!

Decorating with black and white pumpkins

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.

Black & White Pumpkin Topiary

 

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!

Decorating with black and white pumpkins

 

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!

  1. All of your pumpkins are designer worthy and just gorgeous! Thanks for sharing the ideas. I can't wait to shop for a few fake ones for next year!

  2. Brenda Eason says:

    Beautiful beyond words!

  3. I love the black and white pumpkins! Your ideas are just fabulous. I do have a question…When you painted pumpkins, did you use regular spray paint or paint for plastic. I had tried spraying a pumpkin black a week or so ago, and didn't like the way the paint went on.

    Have a wonderful weekend!!

    xo, Jennifer

    Your black and white pumpkins are great!
    I am going to look for some crown stickers.
    I'm smiling about the polka dot one. It is really cute and I think it is so funny that you just colored in price stickers for the black dots –
    I am so happy when I can use what I have for a successful outcome and that is exactly what you did.

  5. Kathleen Grace says:

    These are so great. I have a fake orange one in my stash that I didn't put out this year becasue I just don't like the color. It's getting a coat of paint this afternoon!

  6. vintage girl at heart says:

    Adorable!!!

  7. I love this idea, the pumpkins are great! I have been looking for a way to decorate our store front this year that is not traditional. Our studio is very non-traditional. Thank you so much for the great ideas!

  8. Wow…wow… Thanks for all those great ideas! They are beautiful Manuela!

  9. Your pumpkins are very cute. I really like the one with the crown on it.
    I tried to use a stencil on some last year and they came out ugly. Think I may spray paint over them and try something new but right now life has stopped so I can't do anything.
    Have a great day.

    So elegant Manuela! A delightful alternative to the standard Halloween decor and one that can carry you through Thanksgiving as well.

  17. Manuela,

    We have having a fall tea at church – a friendship tea. I am spraying pumpkins gold and silver to use, and I like several of these ideas to incorporate as well! Thanks for the photos to show us your great ideas!

  21. I LOVE your pumpkins! That sure beats looking at orange all season. Thanks for the tips and ideas.

  22. You always have such great ideas! I am crazy about the pumpkins with the crown. Great idea to spray paint the ornage ones white. I went to Hobby Lobby the other day and all the white ones were sold out!

  23. I love you pumpkins, Manuela!! I have always wanted to try the circle one but didn't know how to do it. Guess what I will be doing this weekend know that you shared the secret? THANK YOU!!!

  24. Debbie @ ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com says:

    These turned out great. I wish I would have gone more for a cream look. Hey but there is still time! I love how you used rub ons. What a great idea. And they turned out so great looking! I may have to try that on some wooden plates for a decorative look! Hope your day is magnificent my dear!
    Blessings,
    Debbie

  25. I would have never thought to do that! I just love the dots!

  26. Hi Manuela :)

    I am loving your pumpkins! (that doesn't sound right, does it LOL) Seriously, these ideas are the best I've seen so far and the vignette is perfect.

    Still painting the kitchen cabinets… if only football season and flu season would end… ugh. You did say it was worth it right?? ;)

    xoxo,

  27. Manuella, thank you! This is so cool. What a fun book! And a great way to start the day.
    I'm going to go look for some cool rub ons! Your pumpkins are great! Wed while I was at Michaels, I bought a cute little white pumpkin and "blinged" it out. It looks really cute. I put it in my studio. It makes me grin.
    Thanks again! Very fun!
