Go For Gold

This luxe look begins with paint. Start by spray-painting a small pumpkin gold and a larger pumpkin a creamy shade of white. For a more formal and dramatic effect, apply gold leaf to a larger pumpkin. To create a seasonal arrangement for a sideboard, add nandina berries to the tops of both pumpkins and surround the duo with pinecones that are spray-painted gold.

Photograph your subject from the side. Scale photo as needed, then cut out profile. Trace and cut profile from black craft paper. Using Mod Podge, adhere cutout to a white paper circle cut to fit interior of a black doily. Secure unit to pumpkin. Glue trim to edge of white paper.


Green Scene

Green Scene

We produced this pastoral idyll by photocopying toile fabric. To re-create the effect, begin by painting a faux pumpkin with two coats of flat acrylic paint, in a shade that matches the background of your fabric; let dry. Meanwhile, photocopy the fabric in color, making enough copies to completely cover your Funkin and resizing the pattern if desired (we shrunk this one by 25 percent). Cut out individual scenes from the toile, leaving about a quarter inch of white space around each. Using our easy découpage technique, cover the entire Funkin.


Burlap Ribbon
Jennifer Causey

Burlap Ribbon

Tie on country charm with this rustic fabric. Secure a strip of narrow burlap ribbon to the top of the shell using hot-glue, then run ribbon along the side of the pumpkin and secure it to the bottom with glue. Repeat as desired. Twist ribbon to add two curled tendrils at the top. Secure with hot-glue. (Wired or coiled ribbon will hold its shape best.)


Decoupaged Pumpkin
Dana Gallagher

Decoupaged Pumpkin

This gourd gets its graphic appeal from Pictorial Webster’s—a volume filled with cool black-and-white illustrations. Choose your favorite drawings from the book (we used approximately 120 for a medium-size Funkin, or faux pumpkin), then photocopy them onto off-white cover stock paper. Next, carefully tear out each photo-copied image, leaving about half an inch of white space around it. (The rough edges will give your finished product added interest.) Using our découpage technique, cover an entire Funkin with the images, overlapping their edges as you work.

No matter how you choose to decorate your pumpkins, have fun and let your creativity shine!

Here are some additional tips for decorating pumpkins:

  • Start by cleaning the pumpkin and removing any blemishes.
  • If you are carving the pumpkin, use a sharp knife and be careful not to cut yourself.
  • If you are using paint, make sure to use acrylic paint that is specifically designed for pumpkins.
  • If you are using a stencil, be sure to apply the paint evenly so that the design does not bleed.
  • If you are using string art, be sure to use a strong thread or yarn that will not break easily.
  • If you are using decoupage, be sure to use a decoupage medium that is specifically designed for pumpkins.
  • If you are using pom-poms, be sure to use a hot glue gun to attach them to the pumpkin.
  • If you are using fabric, be sure to use a fabric glue that is specifically designed for pumpkins.
  • If you are using stickers, be sure to apply them to a clean and dry surface.

I hope these ideas help you create beautiful and festive pumpkins for your Halloween celebration!
