10 Fun Ideas for Decorating With Pumpkins, No Carving Required
No need to get too messy to bring these fall-themed decorating ideas to life
Use only white pumpkins or opt for a mix of those painted white, light blue and pale, buttery yellow to decorate mantels or the kitchen table. The soft hues will work well combined with accessories you may already have, such as pewter pitchers, gold candlesticks, old glass bottles or acorns, leaves and lichen from the backyard.
Second, choose the pumpkin color (white, pale yellow, orange or deep orange-red) based on the backdrop. For example, the cool blue-gray gate above works as a perfect complement for pumpkins in a medium orange, making them stand out from the street. Other pairings to try: white or pale yellow pumpkins against a dark backdrop, or deep red-orange against wood.
For taller stacks, you can attach adhesive Velcro between the pumpkins to help them stay balanced. Paint on the eyes, nose and any other details of your choosing, like buttons down the “chest” or a pumpkin grin.
