More than the Christmas tree.
More than the first bulbs poking through the dirt.
More than the days getting longer.
I look forward to the arrival of pumpkins more than any other harbinger of a season.
What is it about those orbs of orange and white that make my heart skip a beat?
Maybe it is because fall has always been my favorite season, mixed in with the fact that you can do so much with pumpkins.
Countless DIYs and decor possibilities.
I know I am not alone in having a soft spot for pumpkins, so today a few bHome bloggers & I are getting together to share 5 of our favorite “perfect pumpkins”.
Before, I head off to the patch for another, let’s have a look…
Perfect Pumpkins for Fall
Jamie of So Much Better with Age ( I love that name on so many levels ) shares with us her favorite chalk paint pumpkin. Jamie made this lovely pumpkin using creamy white chalk paint & dark wax.
With Jamie’s chalky white pumpkin she, and you, can enjoy touches of fall that work beautifully in a neutral palette.
I love the soft tones & aged look ~ see, so much better with age! You can get the same look with Jamie’s help here.
Cindy at Edith & Evelyn Vintage went wood-landy with her perfect pumpkins. Loving the moss, the natural elements and those darling stems. Love a good stem!
Learn how to get this look using plastic pumpkins & preserved moss here.
From woodsy to glamorous! Heather’s perfect pumpkin over at Setting for Four sparkles & shines. Her’s is a DIY crystal pumpkin.
Isn’t that fun! So pretty with mercury glass for even more dazzle. Get Heather’s glam pumpkin tutorial here.
White pumpkins, like the white tiger, are rarer than the orange variety, but that doesn’t stop Yvonne at Stone Gable. No need to hunt for a white one, just paint an orange one or two … or a few.
You could paint them any color of course, but I love the white with the black & white bows just as Yvonne has diy’ed hers. For the tutorial click here.
Me, I started with a perfect little trio of white pumpkins, but couldn’t stop there.
While the three looked darling grouped on my sideboard, I had added a bit of this, a pitcher or two, some texture, a book, dried roses…and tossed in some acorns until I had built a fall vignette.
Come along with me as I take you step by step in creating a vignette including perfect pumpkins! Click here for instructions & inspiration.
