Pumpkin Decorating 101 Posted by: Hedi Hemenway | 0 Comments

Home decor and gifts for people in the South.

Even though the weather hasn’t quite cooled off enough for us to break out our favorite fall jacket, we are in the mood to break out the pumpkins and start decorating.  Here are a few ideas for how to make your pumpkins one-of-a-kind.


Break out the Mod Podge, scissors, and printer paper and get ready to get personal. From silhouettes to portraits, think of the pumpkins as your backdrop and get creative.  


Use paint to create flowers, leaves, trees and anything else from nature. You can even carve out  petals, leaves, or branches gently into the pumpkin for depth.


Paint, twine, buttons, cotton— think 3-D to create animals like white sheep, black cats, and yellow chicks.


What other ideas do you have for pumpkin decorating?
