DIY Floral Pumpkins

For an elegant home, this DIY floral pumpkin is an absolute must. Flowers take your average pumpkins and elevate them to refined decor for the fanciest of rooms. Depending on the color scheme you choose, these pumpkins could provide a pop of color or be soft neutrals to balance with your other decorations. Plus, Audrey says they only take 30 minutes!

DIY Pumpkin Wreath + Banner

For a funky home with a lot of spirit, a bright pumpkin wreath and matching banner might be just the finishing touch. Audrey uses small foam and plastic pumpkins from Michael's to make this festive look that you definitely won't see in every home. There are so many places you could hang the banner, and while the wreath would look great on your front door, it's cute to have them together in the same place, too! Play around with your colors and locations, and let the compliments from your guests pour in!

DIY Thumb Tack Pumpkins

You don't have to be an amazing artist to be a pro at thumb tack pumpkins. It's as simple as spray-painting and sticking! Audrey uses real pumpkins, but fake pumpkins work as well. For a modern home, you can create simple, geometric designs. Or for the monogram enthusiast, you can use the thumb tacks to spell out your initials or show pride for your city.
