Pimp My Pumpkin: 3 Pumpkin Decorating DIYs For Autumn
Hi Lovelies! With Autumn being in full swing and Halloween is here, we’re sharing a few of our Pumpkins! Decorated by Louise, Myself and the lovely Rachie, we have three different yet matching DIY pumpkins to add a touch of Autumnal cosiness to your home or as seasonal displays for gatherings and parties! If you’re looking for Halloween ideas too, don’t miss our Fun Halloween Ideas for the Family here too. This season there are lots of lovely rustic colours around, with burnt oranges, checked patterns, deep reds and burgundy – and one of our favourites here at B.LOVED – metallics! So let’s see the pumpkins!
We have Louise’s trio of delightful little metallic pumpkins in silver, copper and gold. I’m really loving these dainty pumpkins, they look so cute added to your sideboard or fireplace to add that Autumnal charm. You can combine them with larger sized pumpkins to create a fantatstic display or centrepiece for a table setting or scatter them along a runner with tealights and some on-trend foliage!
Next we have Rachie’s white and gold pumpkin! She used a Squash instead for it’s slightly neater sized and the lovely ridges and signature stalk that makes you think of Cinderlla’s carriage. Often our traditional Pumpkins here in the UK have really short or no stalk at all – so this was a really good tip for Rachie! She painted hers white and cover it with a pattern of gold balls, finishing with gold glitter for the stalk like a cute crown!
Finally, for my own Pumpkin I wanted to create a centrepiece for the dinner table – but without it being too complicated. This was super easy if you’re having a meal or party, but wont keep for very long. I simply painted it white with acrylic paint and when it was dried cut a small hole out of the top of the pumpkin. Scooping out just enough the fit in a small glass of water for my flowers, and then adding a small bunch of rich red flowers for chic Halloween vibes! This would look great in all kinds of different colourways – think white and blush pink or a rose gold pumpkin with white roses. It’s simple, anyone can do it and it looked great with tealights and candlesticks!
