20+ Creative Pumpkin Decorating Ideas

This fall weather makes me want to decorate BIG TIME.  Are you like me with a pile of pumpkins on your front porch, but needing a bit of inspiration, aka, Pumpkin Decorating Ideas to get outside and start making them cute!?!  I’ve designated this weekend as official Pumpkin Decorating weekend for my family (at least the parts of the weekend that aren’t already deemed taken by sports)!  My plan is to avoid carving until the night before Halloween and have a blast with the pumpkins until that point!  Creative juices…start flowing!

    I love most of these ideas. I think creating the house numbers would be easy and fun, but my favorite was the bright colored polk a dots! My kids and I created these fun pumpkins last weekend: http://praisesofawifeandmommy.blogspot.com/2012/10/mr-potato-head-pumpkin.html#.UHW97E3AeSo
