White Pumpkin Decor


My favorite way to decorate inside my home for Fall is with white and heirloom shades of pumpkins. They add a festive feeling without adding the traditional bright Autumn colors to your decor if you decorate with a muted palette.

You can find little white pumpkins at Walmart for around $1; if you already have colored pumpkins you can give them a quick coat of white chalk paint or even add a little light green or blue to make an heirloom pumpkin shade.

For this entryway display I mixed a white ceramic pumpkin, raffia pumpkins, dried hydrangea, and pine cones collected from my yard. I added the metal light and pot to add height and a different texture.

To make my pumpkins I painted over store bought orange foam pumpkins with a coat of white chalk paint; after they dried I used a little green chalk paint to highlight the details of the pumpkins and to make them look a little more real. I used rattan pumpkins to add some more natural textures to the look. I finished with pieces of dried hydrangeas and stems of light green eucalyptus.

I decorated my scale with painted white pumpkins that I placed on top of small grapevine wreaths for a quick sofa table display. I just hand sketched and painted the little pumpkin picture hanging in the middle of the scale.

I hope I could gave you some ideas to decorate your own home this Fall!
