Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

Pumpkin decorating ideas just in time for fall! My posts have been a bit scarce the last couple of weeks. Life has been getting in the way of my blogging. (Hate it when that happens.) To get back into the swing of things, I thought I’d share some really cool ideas I’ve found for decorating pumpkins. And they don’t require a carving knife! These ideas won’t provide you with any pumpkin seeds to roast (love those!). But you won’t have any pumpkin guts to clean up either. That can get very messy. All you need is some spray paint, a glue gun, rhinestones and a few assorted craft items. It all depends on what you want to make. The creative geniuses in the blogosphere have come up with some pretty amazing ideas for you. I’m fascinated by what can be done with a pumpkin and a little imagination. When I was a kid, we just carved a mouth with missing teeth and hoped the eyes wouldn’t be too crooked. Pumpkin design has come a long way! I’ve selected some of my favorites. Here they are for your inspiration.

    How beautiful and fun these are. Tanks for posting them all in one place. I use the styrofoam pumpkins frequently and they are so mixed media friendly, you made me want to get one going! Thanks again 😉
