The fall season is not complete without some decorative pumpkins. Halloween is right around the corner, but fall will be around for a little while longer so it’s the perfect time to start having some fun with your fall decor.
Carving pumpkins is the traditional way of customizing them but painted pumpkins are becoming a huge trend. Painted pumpkins are the perfect DIY fall decor for anyone who doesn’t consider themselves super crafty. It’s a lot easier to paint a pumpkin and create something really chic and amazing, even if you aren’t particularly skilled with crafts. A lot of the ideas are foolproof.
The ideas for painted pumpkins are endless. Your creativity is your only limit! But if you’re short on inspiration, here are 10 of my favorite painted pumpkin ideas I’ve found for Halloween and fall. They are all easy to do and come with tutorials to help you along.
