1. Fall Florals

I’m not much of a painter myself, but I might give this painted pumpkin style a try. It’s gorgeous! The white pumpkin serves as the perfect canvas for all the warm Fall tones that make up this floral design. The fact that it’s not a Picasso makes it that much more beautiful.

3. Whitewashed Pumpkins

For you basic decorators out there, this whitewashed pumpkin is for you! It’s just a matter of using some white chalk paint, watering it down with a litter water, and then applying with a rag. You can apply to any color pumpkin to tone down a potentially bright color, and make it perfect for your shabby chic, farmhouse or coastal vibe. Easy peasy!
