Pumpkin Bling

I can’t believe how quickly October has snuck up on me.

Before I know it Halloween will be here so I better start my outdoor decorating!

Last year my favorite project was adding a little bling to my pumpkins!

Faux pearls were my classic look last year:

This year I think I’m going to do the same project again and perhaps paint the pumpkins black first and then use the faux pearl or go for a natural pumpkin shade and add black beads instead.

We shall see..

    Check out my blog post about push pin pumpkins! It is similar to your pearl idea but a little more rustic:

    This is brilliant! I must try this. Love Fall and Halloween decorating in general but I must admit I'm not a fan of the "digging out the pumpkin" part.

    Love it! I have been trying to decide what I am going to do with mine this year…what if you did something with nailhead trim? Fitting since we are designers!

    I was In Savannah a few years ago and I saw someone with white pumpkins and they had painted the letters for "happy Halloween" on the pumpkins and arranged then going down their front steps. It was so cute
