10 Favorite Ideas for Painted Pumpkins

Fall is my favorite time of year. I love the weather, the scents, the changing leaves, the boots, the decor ─ it’s such a fun season overall. I get so inspired, especially for the holidays. Pumpkins are one of the best and most versatile symbols of fall. You can dress them to fit the general season, Thanksgiving, or Halloween. You can even make them match your home’s regular decor. One of the easiest and best ways to do this is with paint. Any average pumpkin can be turned into something extraordinary and stylish.

I narrowed my favorite painted pumpkin ideas down to 10, but there are hundreds of inspiring ideas out there. The best ones can come from your own creativity. If you have kids, why not have a pumpkin painting party? The opportunities are endless!
