Decorating with Faux Pumpkins & The Winner

I did a little more fall decorating which really just consisted of pulling out pumpkins I already have.

All these pumpkins were done back in 2008/2009. Basically they’re all faux pumpkins and I either decoupaged them or used rub-on decals. Very easy to do!

I used tissue paper or napkins to decopauge my pumpkins.

This one was done using a rub-on decal. Much easier than stencilling or painting by hand (at least for me). I had a few that I did with crown rub-ons and fleur dis lis that I’m not putting out this year. So just look in the sticker/rub on aisle at your local crafts store and you’ll find lots of things you can use on your pumpkins!

    I can’t believe it’s pumpkin time already. I was just thinking today how the little bit of showers we’ve had recently and the due in the early mornings has made the grass green up a tad bit… and now it is FALL!

    Your pumpkins are truly beautiful and somewhat whimsical… congrats to Rhonda !
