Hey Pumpkin!!

Have you been thinking about a creative way to decorate your pumpkin this fall/halloween? If your like me....your tired of the same ol' pumpkin that you carve every year and need to jazz it up a bit this year.....so here's a bunch of ideas to get your creative juices flowing!
Here's my pumpkins....


No need for carving here...just decorate with different size pumpkins and pop some votives in the small ones.



Ok, I know alot of you have some chalkboard paint left over....get it out and paint your pumpkins!
Have you all used the InkChalk pens yet? I just bought mine at Michaels.





Who says you can't monogram your pumpkin? Go for it!


Decoupage anthing you want on your pumpkin!



Give that pumpkin some BLING!



OK, this does require carving...but had to include it! It's so adorable!


How about a swirly damask pattern? Lovely!
That white pumpkin with the black swirly pattern is so classy!


Black & White...Tres' Chic!


How about an Argyle Pumpkin? Perfect for your preppy friends!



Harlequin Design.....is this cool or what?!


Add some stickers to spell out anything you want!



MumPumpkins....Beautiful!


Can't go wrong with Polka Dots!




What says Fall better than Leaves on a Pumpkin...just get out that decoupage glue!



Put your kids to work making metal swirls
& stick them in your pumpkin to create this fun modern design!


(This would look so cool on a black pumpkin)



Glitz & Glam Pumpkins
(everything looks better with glitter, right?!)

Cut off the top & pop in some flowers...instant creativity!
If your feeling really creative you can carve some leaves out of an elongated pumpkin like shown in the photo.

I had to throw this one in there even though it requires some major carving....isn't it cool or should I say "HOT"! (haha)



Well did I inspire you?
(I hope so!)

Darlene,
I took some faux pumpkins samll and used the chalk paint and put sayings on each and hung them in my old fake oak halloween tree ( I haven't showed this yet on blog but I will near halloween. Great ideas; I have seen some of these before but always great to see them again.

Those are all fun ideas for pumpkins! I think I've done all of them except the bling and carving (I'm so not into carving them)oh and the daisykins. I haven't done that yet. Pumpkins are like a blank canvas there's so much you can do with them. Thanks for the idea!

Such creative ideas! Mine end up as "sqirrel and deer food" unfortunately since we live in the country. I noticed my small pumpkins are being moved each night by the raccoons. Oh well!
