I love to work with pumpkins. There is something about their shapes that I find so organic and plump, it opens up an array of possible transformations, not only for Halloween but also for Fall. So this year, I forego the knife and transform your orange fruit into a masterpiece. Here are my 7 favorite no-carve ideas this season.
Channeling your inner Eames with just a Sharpie and some simple lines and dots. Perfect for a modern or Mid-Century table decor. Check ou the full tutorial here.
Give ghosts and goblins a wink with this über trendy wink pumpkin in black and white. The transformation is super simple, all you need is some paint, and a steady hand. Check it out here.
I am crazy about this indigo marbled look made with lukewarm water and electric blue nail polish. That’s right, nail polish. See how it’s done here.
If I could sum up 2016 in one word it would be: succulents. They’ve been everywhere… including in my house! It’s no surprise then that I am crushing over this planter made using a ceramic pumpkin cookie jar. Follow the tutorial here.
This next pumpkin makeover takes a little more skills but the result is well worth the effort. How pretty is this dark floral fresco made from “mod podging” strips of coloured paper to the surface of the pumpkin. Check it out here.
This final look is also very current. I mean, you’ve seen the mud cloth pillows pop up on every hipsters sofa and even in large chain stores such as Restoration Hardware. Anyhooo, to create this look it’s super simple. All you need is Chalk Paint and paint pens in black and white. Check out how to do it too right here.
