Fall is here and one staple we use to decorate with is the pumpkin. Do pumpkins have to be plain orange or carved with a scary face? Absolutely not! Pumpkins can be any color and embellished to fit your fall décor. Let’s get crazy!!
Below are a few examples:
-Use thumb tacks to spell a word.
-Grab some fun markers and draw a picture or simply write words, messages, or your initials.
-Use fun paints to match your room’s color scheme or make a fun pattern.
-Wrap your pumpkin in lace or material to give it some texture.
-Carve out the middle of your pumpkin to use as a planter.
-Sprinkle your pumpkin with glue and add some confetti, sequins, or glitter.
-Carve out shapes such as squares or polka dots and insert a tea light candle to light things up!
-Grab some cookie cutters and using a hammer to easily carve out a cool picture.
Pumpkin possibilities are endless. So don’t just use your pumpkins for pie and carved faces, dress them up and make them a fabulous trendy creation.
Happy Pumpkin Prepping!
