It’s still September, but have you noticed all the Halloween candy and decor that’s stocked up in every store?! Believe me, I have. Halloween is in the air! I used to think it premature, but I’ve really come around to the idea of early holiday prep. There’s no downside to being prepared early for the holidays! Especially when it comes to fun decor ideas. One of my favorite pieces of Halloween decor is the pumpkin. It’s so versatile! Which is why today we’re coming at you with some of our favorite Halloween pumpkin ideas from years past.
Pumpkin Decor for Halloween
As much as I love the classic carved Jack-O-Lantern tradition, it’s definitely not the only option out there when it comes to Halloween-themed pumpkins. Plus, it’s nice to avoid covering your hands in pumpkin goop every now and then. Here’s our list of classic Halloween pumpkin ideas to get you thinking about Halloween. It’s only a month away, after all!
Painted Mini Pumpkins
First on our list of Halloween pumpkin ideas are our Painted Mini Pumpkins. Inspired by our debut Casetify phone case collection, these are at the top of our list. We couldn’t get enough of those lovely phone case designs, designed by our fabulous designer, Garet, so we decided to paint them on some pumpkins. It turns out they look pretty cute on pumpkins, too!
Pastel Pumpkin Faces
Another adorable Halloween pumpkin idea, especially if you’re looking for another painting option, are these Pastel Pumpkin Faces. No need to carve faces here! These ones are delicate and lovely, featuring pastel hues of all kinds. They remind me of china dolls–I just want to pinch their cheeks, they’re so cute!
