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..

What are you favorite Halloween decorating projects. I need ideas.

Soooo pretty! I'm also loving that white etagere in the background (more pictures, please!). I will definitely be blinging out my pumpkin this year!

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

Love that! I actually bought a craft pumpkin the other day and spray-painted it chrome and it looks super cool :)
