Tis the week of pumpkin carving parties but not to worry, I’ve got you covered! If you’re not a jack of all trades with a jack-o-lantern here are three très chic pumpkin decorating ideas that don’t involve any carving.
Chic pumpkin decorating ideas:
1. Pumpkin Floral Arrangement
How-to: Cut off the top of a pumpkin and remove flesh. Paint white and let dry. Fill a vase that is shorter than the pumpkin with a lovely floral arrangement and place in pumpkin. Voila!
2. Gold Leaf
How-to: Wash and dry pumpkin and spray with adhesive. Lay gold leaf foil overtop, one piece at a time, smoothing down into creases with paintbrush as you go. Work your way around pumpkin and don’t worry about crinkles; they add to the effect.
3. Color Block
How-to: Use a hardware-store paint chip as your palette, and for contrast pick colors few shades apart. Experiment with texture, too: A matte finish has a contemporary feel, while glossy is more showy.
And here are a bunch more chic pumpkin decorating ideas.
