Creative fall decorations don’t necessarily have to be complicated. Sometimes it’s enough to arrange a few pumpkins between fall planters and containers. The rule of thumb applies – don’t overdo it. Combine a maximum of 4 fall colors to create a stylish decoration. Match the natural materials and other items to the color of the front door, the house wall or the outside stairs. Add subtle accents with pumpkins in different shapes.

Red apples, pumpkins and fall leaves create an irresistible fall arrangement. You can display them in fruit bowls, on old cake stands, or even in flower pots. For large pumpkins you can also repurpose the saucers from a bucket. And best of all – nature’s edible treasures can be gradually recycled and replaced with new “decorative pieces”.

You can also decorate a window box with small pumpkins. In our article Fall Window Box Decorating Ideas we have already presented some ideas for decoration with decorative pumpkins.

An old wheelbarrow, that is already worn out, can be repurposed.  With a zinc bucket with fall flowers, pumpkins and rose hips, the wheelbarrow becomes an important decorative element and can be effectively displayed next to the garden path or in the middle of the lawn. You can also write anything you like on the pumpkins using permanent marker, for example “Welcome, dear fall!”

Not only the typical ornamental pumpkins can bring variety to the garden. Most edible varieties that grow in the garden are in no way inferior to the smaller species in terms of decorative value. Combine bishop’s hat, patisson or mushroom pumpkin, butternut squash to create a colorful decoration. Best of all, all of these varieties can be eaten cooked, stuffed or, in some cases, raw.

Do you have green or white pumpkins and want to display them effectively? Then you can paint them as you like. Acrylic paints are suitable for this because they have good coverage and can be applied with a brush. Color gradients or striped patterns look particularly cool. If you want to paint the pumpkins, start from the bottom. Blur the boundary between the two shades or colors with water and a clean brush.

Paint Fall Flowers on Pumpkins

Decorative pumpkins can be painted just as easily. For example with beautiful floral patterns. You can also glue stickers on them and achieve a similar effect. The important thing here is that you first clean the pumpkins thoroughly, and remove dirt. Then paint them in a base color like white, pink or orange. Let the acrylic paint dry and then decorate the pumpkin with flowers or other natural motifs as you like.
