Decorating with pumpkins is the best way to welcome fall into your home. Here I will show you, 5 simple ways to decorate with pumpkins for fall.
I love decorating with pumpkins. They emulate fall just by their presence. It is easy decorating with pumpkins. They come in many sizes and colors. They fit just about anywhere.
Choose Multiple Of The Same Item For Impact
The Mantel In White Pumpkins
Earlier this month, I told my mister, I have to have more white pumpkins. Our mantel must be decorated with white pumpkins. Only white pumpkins would do. I had an idea. I wanted to go with a neutral decor for the family room and traditional for the kitchen. And so the quest for white pumpkins began. I scored big time at Marshall’s. I scooped up nearly every little white pumpkin they had. A total of 5. They matched perfectly with the white pumpkin I had just bought at Michael’s.
I decided that I wanted a row of white pumpkins lining the mantel. This was the simple impact I was looking for. This was achieved..
I added some off white sunflowers from Hobby Lobby and filled a simple white vase with them. I love the look.
This a simple way to add impact for minimal dollars.
Use Everyday Items In Your Seasonal Decor
Use a dough bowl for a table center piece.
I placed some more of the off-white sunflowers and placed them in the faux dough bowl. Tossed in a couple of white pumpkins and some large acorns. Simple yet dramatic center piece for my dining room table. I use the white pillar candle holders nearly all year. Sometime using different color candles. I thought white fit the center piece nicely.
Use Items From The Dollar Store
Using a galvanized tray from my kitchen counter, I added pumpkins, leaves and a few acorns. The leaves came from the dollar store. These are great for filling in empty areas in a centerpiece. I gathered all my traditional pumpkins and placed them in this container . Some are ceramic, some are plastic and some are resin. They all match because of the unifying color. The leaves deifinely tied them together.
The dollar store always has some great filler pieces to decorate with. Check out this post how I DIY’d dollar store pumpkins with chalkboard paint for Halloween.
I added a some leaf dishes to hold some acorns in the tray for some additional height.
Smaller Pumpkins Are Easier To Decorate With
When ever we go out to a store I always look for small pumpkins. It is just easier to stick a pumpkin or two in an existing decoration. Or group three together on a shelf. Or even just one. Like I did on the kitchen buffet.
Even wall decor is pumpkin related. Notice the pumpkin truck on the wall? So cute. And when fall is over, the picture can easily be stored in my fall bin. Or even against a wall in the hall closet.
I unexpectedly stuck a small pumpkin on a candle stick. I put my pumpkin truck out on the sofa table. Stuck a pumpkin a candle stick and called it done. Yes, decorating with pumpkins is easy.
Do Not Think You Have To Decorate Every Inch
Leaving space on your table is very important. It gives your eyes a place to rest. Not to mention table tops have a function to actually hold stuff. Like mail, dinner, a beverage and more. As much as I would like to keep my home decorated pefectly, this is reality. My home is where we live and I need to remember that. Too much decor is not a good thing. Sometimes, one needs to step back and edit.
Just a single pumpkin can be enough to welcome fall.
There you have it my 5 simple ways to decorate with pumpkins for fall.
