Pumpkins are one of the greatest parts of Halloween! They’re so much fun to decorate, carve and let’s not get started on all the yummy pumpkins seed you can eat! We are big fans of the traditional pumpkin carving, it’s kind of a Halloween must, but sometimes you want to try a new approach and there’s nothing wrong with that. Mixing it up a little bit makes life fun! In this post we’re looking at 3 different ways to decorate your pumpkin this Halloween and we’re pretty excited to see what everyone comes up with season! So scroll down and get the creative juices flowing!
1. Carve without carving.
Carve without carving? Yes, you read that right. We’re talking about carving into the surface and taking a little bit of it off the top. Pick out a fun design and go at it!
2. Slap some stickers!
Not looking to make a mess this Halloween season? What about using stickers? Put your favorite Halloween expressions or poems on your pumpkins! Maybe even channel your inner Edgar Allen Poe this season. The darker the better!
3. Lace up
Looking to get fancy this Halloween? Then cover those pumpkins in lace! Cover them in fun, lacy patterns to give them a fantastic and festive look! Want to ramp it up? Try painting the pumpkins first, like pictured above!

House Beautiful put together an amazing list of 10 DIY projects you should probably pass on. Most of these are regulars on Pinterest and you’ve more than likely done one or two of them. Pinterest has a lot of great ideas and DIY tutorials, but sometimes you just need to not do it. As fun as trends are, they start to get overdone. And a big part of trends is knowing what not to do or what isn’t trendy any more. Luckily for us, this list not only touches on the bad, but offers ways to update and improve!

There’s no fighting it, fall is here and the leaves are definitely changing. There’s no need to guess anymore, Mother Nature is letting us know. If you haven’t already started decorating for the fall then this blog post is just for you! We’ve got 3 quick tips on to decorate for the fall! These tips will help you get started and should inspire you to keep decorating for the fall. Ready or not, here come the tips!
1. Let The Great Outdoors Help.
Mother Nature is one of the greatest decorators to ever exist. If you really think about it, she’s probably responsible for one of your favorite spots (first, of course, is the wonderful bathtub with a glass of wine). So let her help out and bring some of those fall colors inside! Bring those beautiful reds, yellows and oranges into the decor. Grab some wild grass and bundle it up for display. There’s no reason to not let the fall foliage and the changing of colors do the heavy lifting for you.
2. Design With Warmth In Mind.
Now we’re not just talking about layering up, laying out extra blankets or cranking the fire place – those are a given. We’re talking about colors! You’ve already decided to bring in the fall colors with floral accents, so why not drive it home with complimentary colors? Create warm and inviting spaces for everyone! Guest season is starting, so why not give them a great welcome with your love and beautiful fall home decor?
3. Don’t Be Afraid To Get Out.
It hasn’t started snowing yet! And if it has, we’re sorry and we wish it hadn’t. Fall gives you a few more chances to get outside to enjoy the backyard or patio! Just grab your warmest sweater, a few extra blankets, your warm beverage of choice and enjoy the beautiful outdoors! It also gives you a few more chances to use the fire pit and really turn up the heat! So think about some extra comfy padding for that outdoor furniture set because you’re not done using it yet!
