No fall decorations or display will be complete without the addition of at least one pumpkin. The addition of several pumpkins and also gourds, however, is even better! Gather a variety of pumpkins and gourds in different shapes, sizes, colors, and textures to create visually interesting groups. You can use them to line your walkway, add pops of color to each of your steps, or to adorn your front door.
We recommend leaving your pumpkins intact, instead of carving them up for Halloween, because they’ll last much longer. If you still want your pumpkins to be more playful, try painting them with cute prints or seasonal critters. Spray them metallic colors for a more elegant look. You can even paint a few with your house numbers in bold to help guests find their way to your home.
