Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

It isn’t fall unless you’ve seen at least one pumpkin patch by the side of the road. They are a staple of the fall decor – not to mention Halloween for the kids.

But, pumpkins are made for much more than just scaring folks. They represent harvest, bounty and thanks.

When it comes to using pumpkins in your autumn themes around the house, the possibilities are endless.

Pumpkin vases

Not all pumpkins are used for carving. This pumpkin planter may turn out to be the centerpiece of your harvest table.

Choose a large pumpkin, preferably orange. Use a sharp knife to cut small holes in the pumpkin, around the center. Place a florist vial filled with water snugly into each hole so the top portion of it sticks out.

Place large colorful cut blooms in each tube. The blooms need to be big enough to obscure the presence of the tube. Place the pumpkin in the center of your table or on display elsewhere in the house.

Replace the flowers as they wither.

Pumpkin Candle Holders

Instead of using glass votive holders, use mini pumpkins. Hollow out the inside and place one small candle in each. For a more dramatic effect, paint the pumpkins different colors first.

Mantel Pumpkins

Using acrylic paint and painter’s tape, create different designs on your pumpkins. Try gold polka dots, monochromatic pumpkins in bold colors like blue, red, green, gold and white. Add stripes to pumpkins, harvest sayings, floral designs or whatever suits your décor. Place them on the porch, around the fireplace, as a centerpiece or anywhere in the house you choose.

Etched Pumpkins

Instead of carving all the way through the flesh, simply etch designs into the top layer of the skin. It provides a natural contrast on pumpkins of all colors without breaching the inside of the pumpkin.

They can be displayed around the house, on steps, in windows because they will last longer.

Beautiful berry branches

Berry branches look stunning on your fall table. This simple idea can be the starting point for other ideas. For instance, lay a long, oval circle of entwined red berry branches the length of the middle of your table. Depending on the color of your table, this effect alone with the red berries is good.

In the center of this loop, place a tall, earth-tone vase. Fill it with dark-colored mums. Place small, white pumpkins inside the loop as well.

Basket of pine cones

Place a white basket in the center of your table. Fill it with dark pine cones and colorful artificial or real autumn leaves. Sprinkle with cinnamon potpourri or use a cinnamon room spray on them.

Candles are always perfect as a centerpiece. In this instance, try tall pillar candles in a hurricane vase. Choose colors that reflect autumn: orange, red, brown, and white. Surround the candles with stones, dried fall corn kernels and/or red berries. Place gourds, pears and apples around the candle arrangement in the center of your table.

Potpourri on a tray

If you don’t like the idea of items all around the table like the berry branches, use a wooden tray. Layer it with pillar candles. These can be scented candles or LED candles without a real flame. Layer dried, natural potpourri around them.

The best thing about this centerpiece is that it travels. Move it to a coffee table in the living room, the counter in the bathroom or even the mantel if you like.

* Centerpieces can feature a variety of elements natural, real or artificial and portable to share your look with any room in the house.
