As we say goodbye to the month of October, we say bye to our favorite home decor, too. Skeletons, ghosts, and of course pumpkins are put away until next year. Believe it or not, pumpkins can be used through the month of November, too! They’re such a versatile fruit that is perfect for any Thanksgiving tablescape. Here are a few ideas to transition pumpkin décor from Halloween to Thanksgiving.
Spray Paint: An easy way to turn your Halloween pumpkins into thanksgiving décor is to spray paint them. You can use dark fall colors such as maroon, navy, or gold. You can also use metallic colors such as silver or bronze for a dressier feel.
Center Piece: If you did not carve your pumpkin for Halloween, then carve it for Thanksgiving! Instead of cutting a face into the pumpkin, carve out the center of it and leave a large hole at the top. Place your favorite fall flowers inside to make a centerpiece for the dinner table or outside by the doorstep.
Candle Holders: You can also carve the middle out of smaller pumpkins and insert candles in them to add a festive glow to your décor. These are great for the fireplace or the dining table.
Cornucopia: Thanksgiving décor would not be complete without at least one cornucopia lying around. Fill it with your small leftover pumpkins along with fall leaves and gourds for a seasonal arrangement.
There’s no doubt that pumpkins are great for the entire fall season. You can use it on your Thanksgiving table, family holiday photos, or even Christmas cards! What are your favorite ways use pumpkins in your home decor? Leave your comments below!
