Decorating Pumpkins Without Carving
Picture by Joy – stop by her Flickr page!
Today I wanted to share some more ideas for using pumpkins to decorate your home & garden without having to carve them.
There are so many ways that you could choose to decorate your home for the season. For some reason, when it comes to fall decorating, many people think about the “dreaded” carving day, when they will have to display their talents (or possible lack thereof) for the whole neighborhood to see. Thankfully, there are many beautiful options available to you, where you will never even have to take out that knife 😉
Look at the beautiful displays that some of my creative friends have put together!
From (Joy), the same gal who shared the above picture. I love how her friend has used so many different fall items such as; pumpkins, guards, bittersweet vine, colorful leaves and sunflowers, to fill this vintage baby carriage. This display is so “storybook dreamy”!
By pulling together some of your favorite bits of Autumn, you can make your home & garden the talk of the town! The best part? Most of these items can be found free by using things from your garden, and your decorating closet.
Here are some items that you could add to your fall display
A simple scattering of pumpkins & goards here and there makes everything feel so festive!
The newer white pumpkins that are showing up at farm stands around the countryside are simply stunning! They are great for decorating with, because the eggshell color goes with just about anything… even this cute little doggie 😉
How about a pretty ribbon around the stem of the pumpkin to make is even more dazzling!
And… I think these girls are enjoying the newer white pumpkins as much as I am 😉
