Spooky Ways to Decorate White Pumpkins!

Create a spooky Halloween vignette with DIY Lace pumpkins!  Black lace is a simple and creative way to dress up your pumpkins for Halloween! 

I am loving white pumpkins this year!  In the past I have resisted buying them, but this year there are so many around that I just couldn’t pass them up!  I adore how they add such a glamorous touch to Halloween.  And why can’t Halloween be glamorous?  And I’ve always wanted to try this quick pumpkin decoration that I saw in Martha Stewart a few years back.  Martha never seems to go out of style, in fact dressed up pumpkins are all the rage this year!

Spooky Ways to Decorate White Pumpkins!

Basically, you take a pumpkin and glam it up with a bit of lace.  It’s such a simple and inexpensive Halloween DIY.  And did I mention, gorgeous?!  What’s not to love about that?!

    How funny that the first 2 pics I click on show and tell Friday were yours! Guess I am drawn to your pics. I think this is a super cute idea! Never would have thought of it, and it’s so easy to do. I think it adds a little glam/gothic look to the pumpkin. Nice 🙂

    This is such a great idea!! I was looking for something to use in the center of my DR table to go along with my Halloween Decor Dining Room and this would fit my Victorian style of decorating. Thanks for the inspiration!
