Fall is pretty much-considered pumpkin season. There are pumpkins everywhere on food, as decoration, even as costumes. However, even though pumpkins tend to be everywhere for the fall season, carving a pumpkin is not as great as it once was when you were a kid. In fact, pumpkin carving tends to become a tedious task. Therefore, instead of carving pumpkins to decorate your home, consider one of these trendy pumpkin decorating ideas. These pumpkin decorating ideas do not involve carving at all. But, we must warn you they’re as cute and as glamorous as they sound. While being a whole lot less-messier than carving a pumpkin would be.
Forget painting your pumpkins a traditional color. Instead, give them a metallic twist for a modern and elegant take on a classic. Use hues such as rose gold, gold, silver, and even glitter for the ultimate metallic effect. If you do not want to paint the entire pumpkin in a metallic hue consider painting a section of the pumpkin instead or even dripping the paint into of the pumpkin for a cool effect.
Draw inspiration from a very unexpected source such as your porcelain plates. The intricate patterns on porcelain plates are excellent options when you are looking to decorate with pumpkins. Select porcelain pumpkins with intricate patterns and colors for a twist on fall décor. They push the boundaries between vintage, classic and modern, trendy.
Glitter Polka Dots
We know that colorful pumpkins are always a crowd pleaser. However, if you want to take it a step further add glitter into the mix. Glittery pumpkins are all the rage this fall season. Take your favorite colored pumpkin and transform it into a show stopper by adding glitter polka dots.
Black and Gold
Black is also taking center stage this fall season especially when it is paired with gold. Black pumpkins are extremely popular this season, because of how edgy they are. Add gold accents or even gold studs to add to the edgy feel of these pumpkins.
Add a Ribbon
Take your favorite pumpkin and add a ribbon to the stem. Doing so takes your pumpkin to the next level while still being festive and seasonal plus let’s not forget it is a very simple task to do. You don’t even have to paint your pumpkins just simply add a ribbon on the stem and you are good to go.
Yes, you read that correctly instead of painting your entire pumpkin paint brush strokes. Painting brush strokes on your pumpkin give it an artsy, upscale feel that is actually extremely easy to recreate in multiple different colors. You can even use metallic paint colors for a quick metallic feel.
As an alternative to using one color use two or more. When painting your pumpkin, choose more than one color. You can paint them or you can even dip your pumpkin into the paint for a less symmetrical feel and a more abstract look.
If you do not want to add glitter all over your pumpkin, but still want a glittery touch to your fall décor the answer is to add glitter to the stem of the pumpkin as a substitute. Glitter the stem and keep the rest of the pumpkin as neutral as possible. Doing this will still give you the natural pumpkin feel while being modern and elegant.
Have you ever seen a pumpkin you didn’t love in the fall season? Probably not. However, in place of orange and blue pumpkins its time to bring out the matte blue paint. Matte blue is one of those colors that is slowly growing on us for the fall season. Therefore, why not incorporate it into your fall décor as well. Choose baby blue shades as it will stand out against any other colored pumpkins you may have.
Keep all your décor as natural as possible by topping your pumpkin with a succulent harvest. The aesthetics of this harvest are simply beautiful. It is natural yet simple which works extremely well when you want a natural feel that adds color as well as beauty all at once. There is no need to carve out the top of the pumpkin simply remove the stem and set the harvest right on top.
