FIERCE Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

Posted by Alyssa Franco-Lozada on

It's almost Halloween!!! Some of ya'll may be too old for trick-or-treating, or still trying to figure out what your plans are. Well how about sprucing up your place with these fierce pumpkin decorating ideas. As children we remember getting all messy with the pumpkin "guts" as our parents hover over our shoulders making sure we don't cut ourselves while we cut out silly faces into our pumpkins. Good memories right?! Took me back there for a second! 

Obviously some of us aren't kids anymore, but that doesn't mean we need to miss out on all the fun! So here are some super dope ideas on how to decorate your pumpkin this Halloween, or even for Fall decoration. 


Take a cue from my DIY Crayon Art video and give your pumpkin a melted look.




I love all of the pumpkins on Funkytime, especially this ombré version. It’s a fun twist on a traditional holiday staple.



Let your pumpkins glisten by brushing them with acrylic paint and then sprinkling them with iridescent sparkles.



Spray a clean pumpkin with adhesive and then lay over gold leaf foil (or even aluminum foil) and press foil into creases using your hands or a paintbrush.


Color Blocked. 

Pick up three or more pumpkins to group together and paint each pumpkin a festive color.
