DIY Pumpkin Decoration Ideas

Today I dream about the upcoming Hallowe'en, autumn and... pumpkins!!!

I always think of pumpkins as soon as the leaves start to fall from the trees, to me it is the ultimate autumn vegetable and one of my favourites! What could be better on the long and usually rainy autumn evening than a hot bowl of pumpkin soup, followed by pumpkin pie and a pumpkin spiced latte?

For all my favourite recipes using pumpkins and squashes check out my recipe post here!

Apart from eating them, pumpkins are just perfect for decoration. I don't only mean the spooky carved Hallowe'en decorations but instead you can create something beautiful using inexpensive materials and transform you house for autumn! Here are my favourite DIY ideas!

Decoupaged Pumpkins

All you need is white paint, a picture that you want to transform into a pumpkin and your own imagination! Find the instructions here!
