20 Pumpkin Decorating Ideas Around The House
This post may contain affiliate links. Please see our disclosure here.
It is beginning to look a lot like Fall! I wanted to share some fun pumpkin decorating ideas that you can do around the house. It amazes me how pumpkins can really turn an ordinary space into a warm invitation for Fall in an instant. I use them in so many ways and in every form. I love using real pumpkins for decorating, but I have a few that are artificial and they are equally as beautiful and they can be used year after year.
How to Decorate with Pumpkins
My Fall home tour from last year featured several groupings of pumpkins. I love the velvet pumpkin and it paired really well with the painted metallic one. You can find these at your local Homegoods, TJ Maxx, and other places that carry seasonal decor.
Here is a combination of another deep orange velvet pumpkin mixed with some tiny white pumpkins. They sat right on our coffee table where we keep the remote.
I’ve been known to add a few pumpkins here and there to hutch in my dining room. They add such a fresh touch without going overboard on the decor.
In our den you can find all types of pumpkins. There are artificial, but realistic pumpkins on the hearth and in the basket on the coffee table. I even have some fun sisal pumpkins that I’ve used for a few years now. Don’t worry, you’ll see them again!
We even added a few pumpkins when we did a mini makeover on Gram’s porch makeover. It was so much fun to surprise her.
Another one of my favorite ways to incorporate pumpkins is to group them together. Here is a trio that are on our shelf resting on top of a wicker box.
And one of my favorite groupings was this pumpkin centerpiece. I love everything about this bowl and those pumpkins and their perfect fit.
Mixing gourds and pumpkins can add a ton of texture and color to your fall decor. Don’t overlook the imperfect ones. They all look beautiful when gathered together.
Remember those raffia pumpkins? Here they are again as a centerpiece for my dining room table. Look closely so you don’t miss the other pumpkin in the picture. How fabulous is the pumpkin in the large bowl in the background in the hutch. Love!
A few more artificial pumpkins decorated this entryway. You’ll also notice that raffia pumpkin once again. I use them all over the house each year in a different location!
Last year I shared this fun boo printable for you to insert into a pumpkin. Adding a fun printable to your halloween or Fall display is a creative spin which can be used with just about any pumpkin decorating ideas.
You can even turn pumpkins into a gorgeous planter. You won’t believe how easy it is!
Painted Pumpkin Ideas
These pumpkins were all painted to make one beautiful vignette. This was definitely a favorite project of mine and I loved that gold pumpkin in the middle.
This vignette involved mercury pumpkins. This is a perfect choice if you like a little bling with your decor.
You can even find pumpkins popping out of boxes at my house. You just never know where they will show off!
Pumpkin decorating ideas featuring mums and organic grasses are a perfect mix for any entry way as shown below.
When you are ready for a little Halloween fun, this witch is in pumpkin is a scream to make. The kids will love it!
There are tons more pumpkin decorating ideas that I’ve found across the web over the years. They are spectacular!
Finally white pumpkins always bring an elegant appeal to your fall decorations. So simple. Just place and go about your day!
Finally, this view of my fall back porch is a hodge podge of pumpkins and gourds. Nothing is perfect, but it comes together for quite a display!
I hope that you have found some pumpkin decorating ideas that can work for you and can incorporate pumpkins into your Fall decor this year with ease. Happy decorating!
