Pumpkin Decorating Ideas for Your Porch
Use Pumpkins to Create Autumn Curb AppealMary and I have pumpkin decorating ideas to decorate your porch and to decorate your pumpkins, too.
Create a curb appealing autumn porch and get some tips here for preserving your pumpkins, too.
After you have seen the ideas on this page, we have plenty more in our autumn decorating section. Pumpkins are perhaps the most popular form for fall decorating outside your home.
We like simple and easy ways to dress up the front porch with pumpkins.
This sure looks easy to do. Stop by a Farmer's Market and pickup stackable pumpkins of varying sizes and colors. Place them in a clay pot with a little greenery or straw to add whimsy. Stunning and simple.
We saw this idea at a restaurant.
108 Pumpkins at Priscilla's
We are blessed to share with you some pumpkin decorating ideas from Priscilla. She has over 100 colorful pumpkins in her yard. Isn't her assortment spectacular? What a gorgeous fall display they make.
Priscilla is a very creative gal. She made these adorable scarecrows - probably the cutest we've ever seen. I like how she tucked in gourds, pumpkins and the galvanized bucket in this autumn display.
She also made the attractive welcome sign. We like how it runs vertically rather than horizontally. So much whimsy going on at Priscilla's porch.
And lastly, we wanted to show you the wreath that Priscilla made of sunflowers. She brought sprays of sunflowers and removed the flower heads.
Then she glued them to her wreath. It's very striking with the checked ribbon. We are so happy that Priscilla shared these pictures with us. Please visit Priscilla's blog for all kinds of crafty and creative ideas.
Centsational Girl's Pumpkin Decorating IdeasLet's begin with Centsational Girl's pumpkin decorated porch. We thank Kate for sharing her ideas with us!

And when you are done here, hop on over to see more of Kate's fall decor ideas, too. She has an autumn leaf catcher project that's fun!
Kate is decorating pumpkins for her front porch for the autumn. These are no ordinary pumpkins! I never dreamed you could do so much with pumpkins. Her ideas are so fun and beautiful, easy and affordable, too.
Makes me want to go fill the car with pumpkins this weekend.
Glazing Cinderella Pumpkins - Ooh La LaKate found an awesome bargain on beautiful Cinderellas at her local Whole Foods - dirt cheap like 6 bucks a piece.
She also picked up a few other pumpkin varieties at her nearby pumpkin patch. She got out her bronze metallic glaze and adorned the Cinderella pumpkins.
To glaze the pumpkins, Kate dipped her paint brush in the metallic glaze, wiping most of it off until the brush was about dry.
Then she glazed the edges of the pumpkins with her dry brush. Beautiful! She said it just took a few minutes!
She completely glazed the beautiful orange Cinderella pumpkin. That's sensational.
That white pumpkin is really neat, wow! Kate says she is going to turn it into soup in November.
Kate stacked the pumpkins on top of each other and placed them in an empty urn. See added some gorgeous copper ribbon for grace and sparkle.
If we ever need more pumpkin decorating ideas, we know who to ask.
She arranged other assorted pumpkins on the benches of her porch.
Have you ever seen decorated pumpkins like these? Kate really dressed them up beautifully. Can we live at your house?
Look at that cute little baby pumpkin sitting on the mama pumpkin.
Instead of using a bale of hay or straw, Kate used some classy plum-toned grasses to nestle her pumpkins in.
What a cute little guy we see here.
To complete her autumn porch decorating, Kate found this patterned rug at Pier One.
It adds a lot of zing to her porch-scape. It reflects the autumn-y pumpkin patterns, don't you think?
Kate added a pretty leaf garland to last year's autumn wreath to give it fresh appeal.
That's a great idea!
Various shades of purple and plums; very attractive we say.
Kate planted seasonal mums, kale and purple basil in pots. Isn't that basil really unique?
Kate says it's called "dark opal basil". What a bounty!
Gorgeous for the garden and delicious on your plate.
A basket filled with a wonderful combination of squash and corn.
Kate found this strawberry corn. Hmmm. Very pretty and interesting, too.
She said it even pops! I wonder if it's pink when it pops!
And now you can see how Kate pulled it all together. Could we be neighbors? It's just wonderful, Kate. Thank you so much for sharing your autumn front porch and fabulous pumpkin decorating ideas with us here.
We are so glad to have found Kate's pumpkin decorating ideas on her crafty blog Centsational Girl. Kate, you're amazing!
Please stop by her blog to see more of her thoughtful ideas.

In the photo above, note how the leaves cover almost all of the basket and pumpkin. Try different configurations to see what works best for your porch.
The sunflower is a sweet touch and provides a big pop of color.

It can be a nice cost savings method of decorating as well because you won't need to purchase a lot make a colorful autumn display.
Often times your pumpkins can stand alone as a decorative feature as on the porch as in the photo above. Although these are uniquely carved and provide a whimsical appeal, stacked pumpkins, especially if of different sizes and colors, could be just as appealing.

She uniquely combines pumpkins of various shapes with gatherings of tall grasses. Intermingled among them are a few Halloween decorative items making a nice transition between fall and Halloween.

As in the photo above, be sure the size of your pumpkin display complements the area in which they are placed.
Smaller pumpkins would not have the same effect in this arrangement, although you could mix in a few for extra interest.
