Funky Pumpkins

Fun.kyti.me’s Ombre Pumpkin Decorating Ideas involve simple, cheery and unconventional Fall season decorations. Which happy child would not want to live in the house that has these on the porch?!

As this site is no longer on the internet (which is really TOO BAD), let me share the 4 simple steps with you to make pumpkins just like these: 1: Spray paint the pumpkin white (as a base). 2: Paint the bottom with the darkest hue. Pink in this case. 3: Paint the center orange. Next, paint the 3rd section with your lightest color, white. 4: Blend the colors together with a slightly wet cotton ball , until areas and lines bleed together.

Twine Pumpkins

I love this twine-covered pumpkin decorating idea. Twine is such versatile material. It is natural & rustic. Cheap. Use it to create original looking pumpkins.

Plaids Pumpkin Designs

Just how trendy can it get with pumpkin decorating ideas using plaids?!!! These plaid pumpkins are Burberry-splendid, aren’t they?! I love plaids in every shape or forms. Use Washi-tape or or glue on ribbons for beautiful home decorating results.

Preppy Pumpkin Ideas

Elegance and style, resulting from an hour of playing with a Sharpie to create this gorgeous Louis Vuitton-inspired pumpkin. Don’t stop there. Add a Chanel and/or Valentino logo to some other pumpkins to create a fashion designer inspired trio of Pumpkin splendor.

Love myself some cool ethnic pumpkin decorating ideas as BHG came up with here. The Greek patterned tray is the perfect complement to the pumpkin carvings.

Never carve the same way twice. This pumpkin carving is more of an ethnic painting rather than a carved pumpkin decorating idea… Love the results, though.

Pumpkin Decorating Ideas w Chrysanthemums

Growing Mums? Transform a bunch of flowers into a gorgeous pumpkin table arrangement. While Lowes suggest you poke holes in a real actual pumpkin and put the flowers in that, I suggest you get florist foam, shape that in a pumpkin form and add the flowers to that. Water if frequently as needed. It will make your unique & beautiful party table decoration last for weeks instead of a mere afternoon…

Thats’ just the first 8. There are many, many more ideas to check out:
