FALL DECOR: THE HUMBLE PUMPKIN GOES GLAM

fall
Just when you start to feel a little nip in the air
nature heats up her colors

But the true star of the season is the lowly pumpkin


Pumpkins and Gourds are an inexpensive way to
warm up your seasonal decor

Thought I'd share some of the fabulous things you can do with them for Fall/Halloween
(whether real or faux)
Hope it inspires you!

CARVED!
from elaborate designs


to the simple jack o lantern,
carving makes the humble pumpkin

Disney Haunted Mansion Display
something rather special
both real and faux pumpkins can be carved


WARM WELCOME
I love this display -
rusty urns, black lanterns,
grapevine and wood pumpkins with real and faux pumpkins
 and scattered autumn leaves
spell welcome in a big way

I love them tucked in unexpected places
or elevated as a beautiful centerpiece
beribboned and bejeweled
or filling a centerpiece
fall's bounty is beautiful....

DECORATED
with hardware - nailheads, hinges and metal keys
more nailheads and metal studs

beads and vintage jewelry adorn this 'bewitched' pumpkin

paper mache'd with newsprint or paperback pages

or topped with a witch's hat

Pumpkins - whether plain or embellished,
carved, painted or lighted
the pumpkin is the icon of fall
Not to mention one of its quintessential flavors!
The season is upon us, and its beautiful!
Fill your home with color!
