Tired of the same old template cut-out kit you buy each year on pumpkin season? You can only carve out so many ghosts, evil faces and flying witches after all.
Among the many interesting home decor ideas on Pinterest, we came across various 'pins' featuring beautifully innovative Pumpkin designs.
From simple projects to more elaborate arrangements we chose some five examples to inspire you to create some clever Halloween decorations.
Turn boring pumpkins into illuminated chevron pumpkins by painting them with seasonal or matching colors found around your front porch. This is a great way to use the recycled paint that you have stored away in the garage. Get creative with inverse patterns. Think outside the pumpkin!
Create some fun pumpkin characters like owls or black cats by adding seeds, dried leaves, petals or even pipe cleaners. A fun and crafty protect for kids. Turn the family dog or cat into a pumpkin character =^..^=-
Instead of carving out patterns, simply use various sizes and colors of pumpkins as vases or seasonal flower holders on your front porch. A little less labor-intensive. These also make excellent gifts for the next party. Gift the host of the evening a pumpkin vase with their favorite flowers.
Why stick with orange or dull fall colors? Be bold and creative with your Halloween decoration. Silver spray-painted pumpkins look great as centerpieces around the house. The mirror-like arrangement is a contemporary take on a classic.
Super unique flame-pattern pumpkins give the illusion of a fireplace. Stalk them up together with smaller votive flames.
