It’s the time of year when pumpkin-filled porches are seen in every neighborhood anticipating the welcome of trick-or-treaters. Adorn your stoop with something different this Halloween and draw inspiration from these unique pumpkin decorating ideas.
Using a few basic craft supplies (think acrylic paint, clay, a hot glue gun), customize any pumpkin into the dreamy-eyed face of a sweet mystical creature or your favorite pet.
Glitz & Glam
With a little glue or paint and a lot of glitter, have fun mixing designs and colors for pumpkins that sparkle.
The easiest pumpkin you’ll ever carve requires slicing off the top, clearing the insides, inserting flowers and you have a pretty pumpkin bouquet — it even makes for the perfect centerpiece well into November.
Chalk It Up
With a coat or two of chalk paint, you can swap out Halloween messages and spooky silhouettes for days.
Spray It Gold
A can of spray paint and a cardboard box are all you need to make simple, chic pumpkins in any color scheme — but isn’t everything prettier in gold?
Just as it sounds, melt wax (or crayons) in your favorite color combinations for a unique work of art. A bit trickier than the rest, but worth the extra effort.
Get creative with paint designs by doodling your favorite constellations and add a ribbon or two for good measure.
Mix and match your favorite glitter and metallic paints for stylish, hand-crafted cuteness.
