Alternative Ways to Decorate a Pumpkin for Fall


We are full steam into Autumn, and my favorite month of the year – October! And this is the month when Fall and Halloween decorations come into full swing. While some individuals are interested in carving a pumpkin into a jack o’lantern, others are looking for something a little bit different when it comes to ways to decorate a pumpkin. So in this article, we are going to share alternative ways that you can spruce your pumpkin up for the season!

One way that you can decorate a pumpkin for Fall? Instead of carving a little face, carve a constellation or two. This can be done using any type of pumpkin and it looks absolutely wonderful once completed. If you’re feeling like diving into a bit of a challenge, try to copy a whole night’s sky and let your pumpkin bring your constellations to life once lit up.

Crayon Decor

This idea is perfect for those beautiful white pumpkins, so get yours out. You will also need a few crayons. The idea is to place a few crayons (without paper attached, of course) at the top of your pumpkin and then melt them using a blow dryer. The crayons will streak down the pumpkin as they melt, leaving a beautifully decorated colorful Autumn piece. Select any combination of crayons that you like, such as rainbow colors, or even Fall colors like red, orange, gold, and purple.

Another alternative when it comes to ways to decorate a pumpkin for Fall is to pull out some old-fashioned paint. Paint on spiderwebs, faces, even words or letters.

If you have spray paint, this is a tool that can also be used to decorate some pumpkins. We highly recommend a gold paint that has some glitter in it to give your pumpkins a gorgeous Autumn look.
