Creative Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

Visiting a pumpkin patch doesn’t necessarily mean you HAVE to carve afterwards. Who said you HAD to carve pumpkins anyways? There are so many other adorable ways to decorate your pumpkins to make them look amazing.

Instead of your typical –and predictable – spooky pumpkin, this year you should get creative and opt for a funny or fashionable pumpkin masterpiece.

Not quite sure where to start? Here are some of my favorite creative pumpkin decorating ideas:


1. Put scrapbook lettering on your pumpkin and then spray paint it. This is such an elegant way to decorate the inside or outside of your house for the season!

2. Decorate your pumpkin with a bow and glue on different sized buttons for wording.

 3. Paint your pumpkin. Chevron is all the rage this year, so why not paint this design on your pumpkin and use it as an extra home accent?

7. Glitter, glitter, and more glitter. Smother the entire pumpkin with glitter, or create a glitter ombre pumpkin, or even just apply to parts of it.
