14 Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

Happy Friday!! :) Do you know what today is? The first day of Fall!! Yippee! To officially kick off the Autumn season, I thought y’all might enjoy some pumpkin decorating ideas that I found around the web. There are so many pretty ways to decorate pumpkins for fall, so let’s get inspired together!


Lovely zig-zag painted pumpkins from My Sweet Savannah!

Beautiful ribbon trimmed pumpkins from Good Housekeeping!

Handpainted pumpkins from Lolly Jane Boutique – Love the argyle!

Glittered pumpkins are all the rage this year. I just used some amazing aqua blue Glitter Blast spray paint on one yesterday!

Speaking of blue, I love Jen’s crackled blue dollar store pumpkins!

Pretty decoupaged leaf pumpkins – so stinkin’ cute!

Another ribbon decorated pumpkin – on sale ribbon and hot glue would have a pumpkin all prettied up in no time!

Nail head trim decorated pumpkins – these are so unique!

Monogrammed pumpkins from Brown Paper Packages!

Gold Thumbtack Pumpkins from Madigan Made – incredible!!

These glowing monogrammed pumpkins from Martha Stewart caught my eye. I love how the outside skin is carved off!

Use spray paint to change the color of pumpkins – both artificial and real. There are so many options! I love how these mini pumpkins were made into place card holders!

How incredibly amazing is this doily stenciled design from Better Homes & Gardens?! It makes my heart skip a beat. So so cute! And definitely a project that I could tackle! :)

This canning jar ring pumpkin is adorable from Simply Klassic Home!

Does your family have a pumpkin decorating tradition?
