Yes, it’s pumpkin season, and that means you’re going to be seeing them everywhere—if you aren’t already. That also means the kids are going to be asking for them constantly—if they aren’t already. This year, skip the traditional carving and embrace some fall decor ideas that will turn your pumpkins into treasures.
You can find as many painted pumpkin tutorials as you can pumpkins in the patch. We love thisombre spiderweb pumpkincraft because of how easy it is to pull off.

Talk about easy and high impact! Thecopper tape on these white pumpkinstransforms them into something designer-looking, and this craft only requires a few minutes of work. You can also choose silver tape or opt for something non-metallic if you want to bring in more color or match your interiors.
Amp up Your Carving
This isn’t your typical carving. All you need to do is cut out spaces for the eyes and make a squiggly mouth. The addition of heavenly-veined plastic eyeballs makes theseundead pumpkinsextra creepy.
What’s better than sequins to fancy up those pumpkins? “These might be the easiest, sparkly pumpkins you’ve ever made,” saidSugar and Cloth. “Apply the craft glue to the pumpkin in a circular motion, then pat a few sequins in place once the glue is tacky, being sure to cover the whole circle. Let them dry, and you’re all set.”
Revive Your Buffet Table
Throwing a Halloween party? You’ll obviously want pumpkins as part of your buffet table, and you can’t go wrong with a littlevomiting pumpkin. Especially when you add guacamole.
If your party is for a mixed crowd or adults-only, you’ll love this handy tutorial toturn your pumpkin into a keg. “Making a pumpkin keg is easy as pumpkin pie. All you need is a sharp knife, a tap, beer, and about 15 minutes of your time,” said No Spoon Necessary. “Utilizing a pumpkin as a keg and filling it with beer adds a touch of pumpkin flavor to your favorite brew. Plus, it’s a great conversation piece and it is festively fun!”
Enjoy the fall!

"Dena is one of the most patient and dedicated realtors you could ever hope to meet. We had a long, drawn-out, very difficult time making our home purchase (because of personal circumstances) but she was always helpful, persistent, and available. We would highly recommend her to anyone; she did absolutely everything we asked and more. My husband and I are so thankful to have met her. "
