If You Love Patterns…

If You Love Hanging Planters…

If you love hanging planters…make a hanging pumpkin! That’s right—grab some paracord, paint a few wooden beads, and create a clever way to suspend the mini pumpkin of your choice. A white pumpkin, grey cording and vibrant beads did the trick for this DIY Pumpkin Hanger project from Mirror80:

If You’re Into Geo Design…

Geo design lovers, ’tis your season! Why? Because the latest fall finds are all about sculptural forms. Instead of creating a vignette of ceramic pumpkins and fall leaves, try grouping an interesting collection of vases in black and white. Below we see a spooky design-fabulous spread featuring selections from CB2:

Remember this painted pumpkin we created last year right here at Decoist?! Add some geo forms to your pumpkin with the help of craft paint and painter’s tape. Simple yet striking!
